Avfuel works with GAMI on G100UL distribution
GAMI announced the FAA approved Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) authorising use of its G100UL high-octane unleaded avfuel.
These new STCs represent the initial major milestone for bringing G100UL avgas to market across North America.
While GAMI keeps its focus on expanding the AML, Avfuel will support the initiative by handling the logistics of the product’s distribution, helping to establish a supply chain for responsibly bringing G100UL avfuel to market on a commercial scale.
Together, GAMI and Avfuel will ensure G100UL avfuel is available to all legitimate distributors and vendors on an equitable basis in terms of access and economics.
“We owe it to our industry, our communities and the companies that have worked diligently toward a suitable answer to help make a solution work,” said Craig Sincock, Avfuel’s president and CEO. “The work GAMI has accomplished is admirable and exciting, and we congratulate its team on this exciting first milestone. Avfuel is honored to provide its expertise to help further the unleaded avgas initiative.”
Tim Roehl, GAMI president, added: “The FAA approval of G100UL high octane unleaded avgas is a truly huge development for the future of general aviation. Now is the time for all of the stakeholders in the general aviation community to stand up and celebrate. These AML-STCs are the ‘beginning of the end’ for the continued use of lead in aviation gasoline.”
