Gevo, Inc. has supplied sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to customer and global fuel supplier, Avfuel Corporation.
Avfuel Corporation has supplied the SAF to Leading Edge Jet Center, a provider of business aviation services throughout the Pacific Northwest, to deliver a demonstrative load of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to the fixed-base operator’s (FBO) Seattle facility.
A Fixed Base Operator is a commercial enterprise that has been granted the right by an airport authority to operate on a given airport and to provide aviation services, such as fuel, parking and hangar space, to the General Aviation (GA) community.
General Aviation (GA) is defined by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as “all civil aviation operations other than scheduled air services and non-scheduled air transport operations for remuneration or hire”.
The delivery marks the first load of sustainable aviation fuel for an FBO at the King County International Airport - Boeing Field (BFI) for resale to its customers, as well as Avfuel’s entry to SAF deliveries in Washington state.
