Companies around the globe are focused on becoming more sustainable. That extends to business aviation flight departments, though it can be difficult to figure out where to begin that process. “Doing something is better than doing nothing,” said FuelerLinx’s Jessica McClintock. “I think there’s a reminder here to all of us that to ‘sustain’ is simply to think about your future. If we come into this together instead of just individuals, we will make a bigger impact a lot faster.”
In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Stewart D’Leon, NBAA director, technical operations
Kathy Julien, pilot and sustainability lead, Starbucks
Jessica McClintock, vice president, global accounts at FuelerLinx and chair of NBAA’s YoPro Council
Kerri Russi, cabin safety manager and sustainability lead, Adobe
The U.S. has the potential to replace almost all domestic demand for Jet A with sustainable aviation fuel, although this would require a significant investment in infrastructure and the development of new sources of raw material, according to the Department of Energy.
