News reached your bloggers in recent days of four more airports that now offer lead-free, ethanol-free mogas:
- Hendricks County Airport – Gordon Graham Field (2R2), Indianapolis, IN
- Mifflintown Airport (P34), Mifflintown, PA
- Clarke County Airport (23M), Quitman, MS
- Putnam County Airport (4I7), Greencastle, IN
You’ll find a complete list of airports offering mogas as well as a map of these, thanks to GAfuels blogger Dean Billing, who asks all pilots to comment on any inaccuracies, additions, etc. at this link.
EAA President Rod Hightower recently announced that having mogas at Wittman Regional Airport was his #1 priority for improvements for EAA AirVenture 2013. Realistically, this will only happen if one or both of the two FBOs on the airfield, Basler Flight Service or Orion Flight Services, works with the EAA and mogas fuel suppliers to make this happen. If you frequent these FBOs and support mogas, please encourage the owners of these FBOs to help Rod Hightower in his efforts to make this FAA-approved, lower-cost, lead-free aviation fuel available by AirVenture 2013.
Your bloggers continue to assist numerous airports across the country secure suppliers for aviation-grade mogas. We will be making some major announcement in this regard in the coming weeks.
