Atlantic Aviation, host of the aircraft static display at this year’s NBAA-BACE at its Orlando Executive Airport (KORL) FBO, is partnering with industry sustainability solutions provider 4Air to deliver a program Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) reservation and claim form for all jets -A purchased from its KORL or KMCO premises during the show.
Booking and claiming allows operators to purchase and receive sustainability credit for using SAF in locations where fuel is not physically present. The actual fuel is then dispensed to another aircraft in an area where SAF is available, whose operator would not be able to claim credit for its use.
According to Atlantic, it will cover the premium charged for SAF fuel credits, which will be verified by 4Air. Through an SAF delivery receipt program developed in conjunction with NATA, customers will receive emission reduction receipts as fuel is dispensed during the event.
“When we considered trucking SAF the approximately 2,800 miles from the West Coast refineries to Orlando for the show, we realized this might be considered somewhat hypocritical, as any environmental benefit the SAF received would be outweighed. negatively by diesel emissions from the trucks that brought it on,” said Brian Corbett, Atlantic’s business and sustainability director. “Partnering with 4Air on this unique reservation and claims program offers a much smarter and more efficient solution.”
