Sun shines a light on SAF at Camarillo
To encourage the purchase of SAF in Ventura County, Sun Air Jets is offering Signature TailWins loyalty programme members five times the amount of Signature TailWins reward points for SAF orders until 31 March.
SAF could reduce carbon dioxide emission by up to 75 per cent.

Signature Select member FBO Sun Air Jets is to offer sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at its full-service FBO at Camarillo airport in Ventura County, California. Sun Air Jets will be one of the first FBOs in the Signature Select network to offer SAF.

With the rising need for environmental sustainability, the FBO is excited to join the private aviation industry's efforts to reduce its impact on the environment. As a clean substitute for conventional jet fuel, SAF is made from organic and renewable materials, rather than refined from petroleum, and can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 75 per cent.

“Now, more than ever, it is important for everyone to do their part,” says Brian Counsil, president and CEO of Sun Air Jets. “We're thrilled to partner with Signature Select and Epic Fuels to be one of the first companies to offer SAF and help our company and clients reduce their carbon footprint.”

Sun Air Jets will begin offering SAF at KCMA in Ventura County at a low rate. Due to a generous donation by an anonymous benefactor, the company will offer SAF at the same rate as conventional jet fuel while supplies last.

“We are thankful for the opportunity to extend this unique partnership to our Signature Select FBOs, and we will continue to focus on environmental stewardship and safety, paving the way for a more sustainable future,” says Marius Ronge, president of EPIC Fuels and Signature Select.

To encourage the purchase of this alternative fuel source, Sun Air Jets is offering Signature TailWins loyalty programme members five times the amount of Signature TailWins reward points for SAF orders through 31 March.
