Classic Aero-TV: Not Just ‘Near’, But HERE! - Swift Fuel Ready To Power GA

From 2016 (YouTube Version): Swift Fuels Expands the No-Lead Avgas Option across the Country…

While at EAA AirVenture 2016, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, met with Chris D’Acosta, the CEO of Swift Fuels, to get an update about the progress of introducing this new no-lead avgas to the flying public.

Let’s quickly review what Swift Fuels is all about. Swift is producing an alternative aviation gasoline that does not use lead. At this time, the fuel they are marketing is the equivalent of 94 octane, and it is a fuel specifically formulated for aviation that complies with all FAA criteria for use in type-certificated aircraft.

In the first part of the conversation, D’Acosta fills Jim in on the various locations were Swift Fuel has now become the standard at FBO’s. As D’Acosta runs down the list of locations, it’s obvious that this product is gaining wide use throughout the country.

Of course, a 94 octane rating fuel still falls short for many aircraft powered by reciprocating engines. In the video, D’Acosta goes into details about the developmental progress of their higher octane rated fuels and where it stands in the process of certification. As you watch the video, you’ll learn about some of the complex issues involved in developing no-lead avgas that will one day…soon…be a requirement.
