NATA Encourages Federal Approach To Aviation Gasoline Regulation

Move In Response To CA Enviro Group Actions Against FBOs

In response to several "notices of violation" (NOVs) sent to California FBOs and aviation fuel distributors from the Center for Environmental Health (CEH), a San Francisco-based environmental group with no regulatory authority, the National Air Transport Association (NATA) is encouraging legislators to treat regulation of the sale, content and use of aviation fuel on the federal level.

The notices come as a result of the CEH claiming that that the sale of leaded gasoline for use in piston powered aircraft violate the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act. CEH is pushing for the ban of all leaded aviation gasoline in California and impose financial penalties for several companies.
Current FAA and EPA rules are being established for the sale, content and use of aviation fuel.
Due to the effect of initiating individual state enforcement, this case could lead to stiff penalties for companies that sell aviation gas nationwide. NATA has assisted these companies with facilitation and administrative services, awaiting a hearing on Oct. 3 in Fresno.
