I was reading about the EC135 accident in Scotland where the pilot ran out of fuel. I don't really understand what happened. Nobody knows for sure but they're saying the fuel gauges were not reading correctly. That I can understand. But the transfer pumps were turned off and the pilot reset the CAD several times for low fuel warnings. Why would a pilot turn the transfer pumps off? If the pumps were off AND you were getting numerous low fuel warnings, why did the pilot keep flying regardless of what the gauges were saying? It has also been said that the 135 fuel gauges have had issues with erroneous indications. Anyone experienced that?
