A sustainable future at Van Nuys

Van Nuys airport has just hosted “Business Jets Fuel Green: A Step Toward Sustainability,” a day-long event devoted to the use and awareness of sustainable alternative jet fuels. These include the latest formulations of jet fuel that come from renewable and sustainable sources.

Van NuysLos Angeles City Council member Nury Martinez and Los Angeles World Airports executives, including LAWA’s Chief Executive Officer Deborah Flint, joined a consortium of general aviation and business aviation advocates to promote the use of SAJF as part of a shared commitment to combating climate change through the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from jet fuel.

The airport thus becomes the first general aviation airport in the US to offer SAJF on a trial basis, serving as a model for other general aviation airports.

For the event, each of the participating FBOs purchased 4,000 gallons of SAJF, demonstrating the business aviation industry’s commitment to the development and adoption of SAJF.
