Aviation leaders to showcase viability of biojet fuels Jan. 17

By World Energy Paramount | January 02, 2019

Los Angeles-area civic leaders will join business aviation leaders on Jan. 17 to mark a milestone in the development and adoption of sustainable alternative jet fuels (SAJF) through Business Jets Fuel Green: A Step Toward Sustainability. The group will host a visually compelling, informative, day-long series of events to highlight the SAJF Initiative and resources, and demonstrate the fuels’ viability—long a priority for the business aviation industry.

The Jan. 17 event will mark the official launch of SAJF in use, with demonstration flights showing SAJF in action, making the Van Nuys Airport the first general aviation airport in the U.S. to offer SAJF on a trial basis, and providing a model for offering the fuels at other airports.
