Set a Bingo prior to dumping. The dump will automatically shut off at your bingo.

The fuel dump switch is on the left console panel, just aft of the throttle - that section of the left console panel is labeled "FUEL."

 

 

Cheers,

Setting BINGO (during startup) is always a good practice even when you don‘t anticipate to dump later. Especially in a jet which has as short legs as our lovely Hornet:smilewink:

You should actually set your bingo fuel differently for different situations.

 

In CNATRA P-826, Chapter 2, 202 FENCE CHECKS, 1 Fence In, d. BINGO – Set to Joker fuel. and

2 Fence Out, d. BINGO – Set to divert fuel.

 

This manual is specifically regarding BFM in the T-45 but I'd imagine the training received is largely transferred to the F/A-18C.

 

As always, if you know better then please correct me.
