ENBL Bringeland - fuel

Recommended Posts

I don't know what FSX (etc) says about ENBL, but according to FS9 and ACUKWIK, Bringeland has JETAV, but not AVGAS.  As ENFA Flatval can't supply fuel for the final leg, this suggests that whereas the paraffin burners only need to remember to fuel up at ENBL for two legs totalling 616nm (plus margins), piston-engined aircraft are going to fuel up at ENSO Storsstokken for 3 legs totalling 1001nm (plus margins).
Some of us can fit ferry tanks, or even carry a few 55 usg drums and hand refuelling kits (maybe even the odd drum or two spare for selling to the less fortunate), but can we assume that ENBL Bringeland will have an avgas cache for the event (I can arrange for DC-3 Airways Maintenance Division to fly it in)?

Hi John,

Yes, we have laid on extra temporary tanks of fuel for turbines and pistons at every full stop. Perhaps we should have mentioned that.

We could always do with more gas though as we have more pilots than we budgeted for, so if DC-3 Airways Maintenance Division could fly some more in I would be happy to pay (slightly) above the going rate.

No worries, we are already shipping spares (mostly for DC-3, but I've got some bits for the Monospar, and if anyone else needs anything that'll fit in, or underneath, a Dakota we'll happily carry it), tools, and maintenance crew from North Weald to all airfields involved in the Rally.
