Washington, DC, March 29, 2010 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today released Ten Critical Strategies for Long-Term Fuel Savings, a new white paper that provides a variety of steps for saving critical dollars on aircraft fuel bills, both in the short-term and long-term. Opportunities to save fuel and reduce operating costs abound for business aircraft, potentially saving entrepreneurs and companies that rely on business aviation thousands of dollars per year. 

“NBAA continually seeks ways to help its Members minimize costs, and fuel is one of the largest variable costs of operating an aircraft today,” says Mike Nichols, NBAA vice president of education, operations & economics. “However, while the price of fuel may be out of your control, there are still tangible steps you can take to keep expenses down.”

Included in this white paper are strategies to compare fuel prices at alternative destination airports and FBOs, calculate aircraft weight for maximum efficiency, determine if you qualify for a fuel discount and more.

Fuel production and refining costs will continue to keep wholesale and retail prices at levels never anticipated just two years ago. Ten Critical Strategies for Long-Term Fuel Savings provides tips to help flight operations start saving today. Download a free copy at
