Business Jets Fuel Green:
A STEP TOWARD SUSTAINABILITY
On January 17, 2019, a coalition of international business aviation organizations joined Los Angeles-area civic leaders to mark a milestone in the development and adoption of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) through Business Jets Fuel Green: A Step Toward Sustainability.
The day-long series of events, including demonstration flights conducted by business aircraft, established Van Nuys Airport as the first general aviation airport in the U.S. to offer SAF on a trial basis, and served as a model for offering the fuels at other airports.
The success of the trial flights clearly demonstrated three key points:
SAF is safe and do not impact aircraft performance.
SAF offers great impact and benefits to the airport and the community, including reduced particulate matter.
SAF reflects the commitment by business aviation to aircraft carbon reduction.
