Podcast: Debunking Maintenance Myths About SAF

May 23, 2022

Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) has been a growing part of business aviation for more than a decade. However, despite numerous industry efforts to spread understanding, awareness and use of SAF, there remain a few persistent myths about the fuel and its effects on aircraft powerplants that must be addressed. “These engines are built to perform with Jet-A and, for all intents and purposes, SAF is Jet-A,” notes Nate Dietsch, Netflix’s assistant aviation maintenance manager. “We have seen no problems thus far with our maintenance.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
  • Nate Dietsch, assistant aviation maintenance manager, Netflix
  • Charles Etter, staff scientist and technical fellow, Gulfstream Aerospace
  • Frank Moesta, SVP for strategy and future programs, Rolls-Royce
