Atlantic Aviation at New Castle Airport in Delaware, US has received a delivery of 7,300 gallons of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) from Avfuel Corporation.
Following a number of demonstrations with FBOs, airports, OEMs and charter companies the delivery on 9 September marked the fuel supplier’s first such delivery for a corporate flight department.
Commenting on how Avfuel is excited to be expanding its portfolio, Avfuel’s VP of contract fuel, Jonathan Boyle said: “It’s indicative of the continued interest we’re seeing in sustainability measures throughout business aviation. We are appreciative of the Atlantic Aviation team and our loyal customer for their collaboration in this important demonstration. Avfuel is proud to partner with these operations as a step toward making sustainable aviation fuel more attainable.”
To tackle the greatest hurdle to SAF’s wider adoption – availability – Avfuel is raising awareness of the fuel with the hope of inspiring commitments to further encourage production. The company has a team working to source, test, blend and ship SAF for special offtake demonstrations and events for the business aviation community.
