Ross shows carbon who's boss with hybrid vehicles
New-generation HEV Toyota Sienna vans at Ross Aviation facilities are part of an ongoing agreement with Go Rentals, the California-based car rental company that specialises in the business aviation industry.
The goal is to have an entirely HEV crew car fleet by 2022.

Ross Aviation, the North American FBO chain, has continued its nationwide drive to reduce business aviation's environmental impact with the addition of hybrid electric (HEV) crew cars at its FBO facilities in White Plains, New York and Long Beach, California; and, operating under the Rectrix name, in Sarasota, Florida.

The new-generation HEV Toyota Sienna vans at these facilities are part of an ongoing agreement with Go Rentals, the California-based car rental company that specialises in the business aviation industry. Go Rentals is Ross Aviation's preferred rental car company and will be providing additional energy efficient vehicles at other Ross Aviation locations in the future with a goal of an entirely HEV crew car fleet by 2022. In addition to HEV crew cars, Go Rentals also has Tesla vehicles available for rent in select locations.

“As a company and as individuals, all of us at Ross Aviation are deeply committed to finding ways to economically reduce business aviation-related energy consumption and environmental impact,” says Brian Corbett, Ross CEO. “In addition to our new hybrid-electric crew cars, we've recently created our industry-leading 'Fly More. Leave Less' carbon offset fuel programme, have planned investments in additional electric ground support equipment and are exploring photovoltaic systems on hangar roofs at several of our facilities. And those are just a few examples of what we believe can be done to help our environment and business aviation's impact on it. I honestly can't think of a more important goal.”
