LONG BEACH AIRPORT ASSOCIATION (LBAA) CELEBRATES FIRST USE OF UNLEADED FUEL AT LONG BEACH AIRPORT - (Long Beach, Calif.) -- Signature Flight Support @ Aeroplex Aviation is celebrating the first delivery and usage of Swift UL94 unleaded aviation fuel. Signature is the first provider at Long Beach Airport (LGB) to offer the unleaded fuel, making LGB the fourth airport in the region with environmentally sustainable fuel available for purchase.
UND Aerospace is among a small group of collegiate aviation institutions that are leading the way in switching to unleaded aviation fuel, commonly referred to as avgas. That switch was made on June 22, following the depletion of the aerospace college’s final gallons of 100 Low Lead fuel, called 100LL. UND Aerospace is now using UL94, an unleaded avgas that will help UND save money through reduced aircraft maintenance costs, while functioning as a cleaner, more environmentally friendly fuel.
Considered the Nation’s third busiest general aviation airport, Centennial Airport, became the first public-use airport in the State of Colorado to offer unleaded aviation fuel to its piston-powered aircraft users.
The School of Aviation Sciences at Utah Valley University (UVU) will be the first collegiate flight training program in the nation to switch to fully unleaded aviation fuel (UL94) for its training fleet.
Swift Fuels has extended their popular “Forever Avgas STC” program offered to all aviation consumers with low-cost pricing set at $100 through at least December 31, 2023. Any aircraft owner/pilot who purchases a Forever Avgas STC for $100 will receive all Swift Fuels’ past and future avgas certification documents/placards for their registered aircraft at no extra charge – FOREVER!
