    personnel are available in the flight deck to monitor low PRESS lights
  58. 767/757 For ground operations prior to engine start: The center tank fuel pump switches must not be positioned ON unless
    the center tank contains usable fuel. With center tank fuel pump switches ON, verify both center tank fuel pump low PRESS lights are illuminated and EICAS CTR L FUEL PUMP and CTR R FUEL PUMP messages are displayed.
  59. 757/767 For ground operations after engine start and flight operations:The center tank fuel pump switch must be selected OFF when
    the respective CTR L FUEL PUMP or CTR R FUEL PUMP messages displays. Both center tank fuel pump switches must be selected OFF when either the CTR L FUEL PUMP or CTR R FUEL PUMP message displays if the center tank is empty. During cruise flight, both center tank pump switches may be reselected ON whenever center tank usable fuel is indicated.
  60. 757/767 De-Fueling And Fuel Transfer When transferring fuel or de-fueling center or wing tanks, the fuel pump low PRESS lights must be monitored and the respective fuel pump switches positioned to
    "OFF" at the first indication of low pressure. Prior to transferring fuel or de-fueling, conduct a lamp test of the respective fuel pump low PRESS lights.
  61. Intentional dry running of center tank fuel pump (CTR L PUMP or CTR R FUELPUMP message on EICAS) is
  62. 757 Defueling main wing tanks with passengers onboard is prohibited if maintank fuel pumps are powered. De-fueling center wing tank with passengers onboard is prohibited if the center wing tank fuel pumps are powered with the automatic center tank fuel pump power removal system inhibited. Fuel may betransferred from tank to tank, or the aircraft may be de-fueled with passengers onboard, provided fuel quantity in the tank from which fuel is being trans-ferred is maintained above
    2,000 pounds (900 kilograms).
  63. 757/767 Fuel Usage (No Center Tank Fuel):
    Use tank-to-engine fuel feed for takeoff and landing with all operable main tank boost pumps ON and the crossfeed valve(s) CLOSED.
  64. 757 Normal Procedures The center tank fuel pump switch(es) must be selected OFF at
    the first indication of fuel pump low pressure any time during the flight. This includes low pressure indications that may occur because of pitch attitude
  65. 757 Takeoff and Initial ClimbThe center tank fuel pumps must be OFF for takeoff if center tank fuel is less than
    5,000 pounds (2,300 kilograms) with the airplane ready for initial taxi. Both center tank fuel pumps should be repositioned ON above 10,000 feet or after the pitch attitude has been reduced to begin acceleration to climb speed, if more than 1,000 pounds (500 kilograms) remain in the center tank.
  66. 757 Climb, Cruise and DescentBoth center tank fuel pump switches must be selected OFF when center tankfuel quantity reaches approximately
    1000 pounds (500 kilograms) during climb, cruise, or descent. For airplanes not equipped with a center tank scav-enge system, this 1,000 pounds (500 kilograms) of center tank fuel may only beused in a low fuel situation.

    NOTE:In cruise flight, center tank fuel may be reduced to approximately 800 pounds (400 kilograms) as necessary to extinguish the FUEL CONFIG light and EICAS "FUEL CONFIG" message. This allows the FUEL CONFIG alert to activate for fuel imbalance or low fuel situations.
  67. 757 FUEL CONFIG Indication. The FUEL CONFIG light will illuminate when thereis fuel in the center tank that exceeds 1,200 pounds (600 kilograms) and thecenter tank fuel pump switches are OFF. Do not accomplish the FUEL CONFIG-URATION non-normal checklist prior to or during takeoff with less than 5,000pounds (2,300 kilograms) of fuel in the center tank, unless there is an imbal-ance between main tanks or fuel is low in either main tank.
    After canceling theFUEL CONFIG message, monitor fuel quantity indications and accomplish theappropriate procedure or checklist if a main tank imbalance or main tank lowfuel quantity situation occurs.
  68. 757 Non-Normal Procedures
    Low Fuel. In a low fuel situation, both center tank pumps may be
    selected ONand all center tank fuel may be used regardless of the amount of fuel remain-ing in the tank.
  69. 757 Non-Normal Procedures
    Pump Failure. If a center tank fuel pump fails with fuel in the center tank,
    accomplish the FUEL PUMP non-normal checklist.
  70. 757 Additional Information
    Fuel Loading. For the time period that AD 2002-19-52 and AD 2002-24-51 arein effect, the zero fuel gross weight of the airplane plus the weight of centertank fuel may exceed the maximum zero fuel gross weight by up to 5000pounds (2300 kilograms) for takeoff, climb, cruise, descent and landing, pro-vided
    that the effects of balance (CG) have been considered.
  71. WARNING:Do not reset a
    tripped fuel pump circuit breaker.
  72. 757 Refueling
    The fuel designation is per Rolls-Royce O.I. F-211 (535-E4) –B, Appendix 2. Thefollowing fuels and mixtures thereof are approved for use:

  73. 757 Load main tanks equally 1. If main tanks are full and more fuel is required,
    • load the center tanks.
    • 907 Kg (2,000 lbs) of fuel may be loaded in the centertank with less than full wing tanks, provided the weight of fuel in the centertank plus actual ZFW does not exceed maximum ZFW, and balance limits areobserved.
  74. 757 When defueling center or main tanks, the Fuel Pump Low Pressure indicationlights must be monitored and the fuel pumps positioned Off at
    the first indi-cation of fuel pump low pressure.
  75. 757 Intentional dry running of a center tank fuel pump (DCTR L FUEL PUMP or CTRR FUEL PUMP message displayed on EICAS) is
  76. Defueling with passengers on board is
  77. Perform an operational check of the fuel crossfeed valve(s) during
    the last hour of cruise flight during each extended range operation
  78. The crossfeed valve(s) may be OPEN to
    correct fuel imbalance
  79. OPEN the cross-feed valve

    visually sighting the traffic.
  90. Compliance with TCAS resolution advisories (RA) is required unless the pilot
    considers it unsafe to do so
  91. Maneuvering opposite to a RA (especially a RA involving altitude crossing) is extremely hazardous and PROHIBITED unless it is
    visually determined to be the only means of assuring safe separation
  92. All TCAS RAs must be flown
  93. Do not follow flight director commands while performing an
    RA maneuver
