Business Aviation Insider Quick Poll: Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is a safe and reliable alternative to Jet A that helps reduce CO₂ output without negatively affecting aircraft performance, powerplant manufacturer warranties or engine maintenance programs. When blended with petroleum-based Jet A at prescribed levels, sustainable aviation fuels meet the same ASTM standard (D1655) as traditional jet fuel and are indistinguishable from the conventional petroleum-based product.

Despite recent advances, some barriers remain for widespread adoption of SAF within the business aviation community. Take the quick poll below to share what would help your operations begin to regularly use SAF.
