The FAA has awarded Crown Consulting a five-year $12.5 million contract to assist the agency’s Aviation Fuel and Engine Test Facility (AFETF) at the William J. Hughes FAA Technical Center in performing research, test, and engineering analysis to develop standards and aid in selecting unleaded gasoline for general aviation.
The company “will play a critical part in the scientific research that AFETF is conducting under the Piston Aviation Fuels Initiative (PAFI), supplying the empirical basis for high-visibility regulatory decisions and ultimately market selection,” company officials said in a press release.
Noted CCI’s President, Charlie Keegan, “This work is exciting and meaningful for us in many ways. To say that we are honored by the FAA’s selection is an understatement. Not only do we look forward to helping AFETF in facing the scientific challenges ahead, but welcome the opportunity to contribute to the GA’s transition to environmentally sustainable operations.”
Founded in 1989, CCI provides analytics, information solutions, management, and engineering services to assist government and private organizations, with an emphasis on aviation. The company owns and operates a state-of-the art analytics laboratory with an array of modeling and simulation tools.
