Hi everyone, I am sitting Flight Planning next week and was wondering if someone could give me guidance regarding the Reduced Contingency Fuel (RCF) procedure and questions 330717 & 330718. My textbooks state that the contingency fuel required when operating under the RCF procedure is the greater of:

5% fuel from DP to destination aerodrome.

Or,

5% fuel from departure aerodrome to optional refuel aerodrome via the DP.

In both questions, the greater quantity of fuel is required between the departure aerodrome and optional refuel aerodrome via the DP. The answers however are marked as 5% of the fuel from the DP to the destination aerodrome. Could someone please explain to me why this is? According to my textbooks, the answer should be 5% of the fuel from the departure aerodrome to the optional refuel aerodrome via the DP (or so I interpret it...)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Chris.
