FAC initiates statewide effort to address aviation fuel contamination

The FAC General Aviation Committee and FAC leadership have initiated a major effort to address an important industry safety issue - fuel contamination and specifically Diesel Exhaust Fluid. 

The scope of FAC’s effort is broad and intended to call attention to the issue, educate airports, users, fuel providers and community leaders about the safety concerns and how to avoid fuel contamination.  FAC is working closely with our industry partners at NATA, NBAA, FAA and FABA to develop a program of Operational Best Management Practices that all Florida airports and fuel providers can add to their training programs.  If you would like to get involved in this effort, please reach out to the GA Committee Chair, Scott Kohut at scott@bocaairport.com or by phone at 561-391-2202, ext. 212 or lisa@floridaairports.org.

Effective January 1, 2021, airport managers are requested to implement the FAC Statewide DEF BMP.  This BMP requires airport managers to work with their fuel providers to implement these procedures and reduce the risk of fuel contamination.
