The FAA’s July announcement that it has issued supplemental type certificates (STCs) for the use of a new high-octane unleaded fuel was a milestone in general aviation’s move away from leaded fuels. However, the announcement also left many unanswered questions.
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association hopes to answer those questions in a free webinar on Thursday, Sept. 16, 2021, at 7 p.m. EDT.
During the webinar, AOPA Editor-in-Chief Tom Haines will speak with George Braly from General Aviation Modifications Inc. (GAMI), which created the new fuel, and with Muneeb Ahmed, director of trading and logistics from Avfuel, which has been tasked with coordinating the distribution of fuel.
The hour-long live webinar will attempt to answer many of your questions, including how FBOs and airport managers can explore ways to get ready to use this fuel once it is more broadly approved, AOPA officials said.
Tune in to the AOPA Live YouTube Channel to watch the webinar, which will also be archived for later viewing.
