Job Description for Aircraft Fueler

Aircraft fuelers are responsible for ensuring that all of a company's planes and aviation vehicles are routinely equipped with fuel. As airports usually deal with plenty of plane traffic, they often employ many fuelers, all of whom are trained to handle jet fuel and high-octane aviation gas with a variety of aircraft. They do this by operating fueling trucks and utilizing up to fifty feet of hose from the truck to the fuel panel. Fueling the plane involves climbing a ladder and lifting up to 60 lbs over their heads to fit the nozzle to the aircraft. Aside from adding fuel to the vehicles, aircraft fuelers are also responsible for understanding the machinery involved in fueling planes, ensuring that everything is mechanically functional, and detecting potential problems as early as possible. They must also be able to dismantle and reassemble these machines and perform maintenance, cleaning, and repairs. They may occasionally be required to work with other employees in the maintenance process, and they are generally required to have a comprehensive understanding of safety rules while on the ground and using ramps and trucks.
