Ross Aviation offers SAF at Palm Springs
SAF is one way to reduce a flight's carbon footprint, providing the same climate benefit as removing emissions from four cars over one year. Ross Aviation is offering an ongoing supply of SAF at its Palm Springs location.

US FBO chain Ross Aviation is now offering customers Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) from Avfuel at its Jacqueline Cochran Regional airport location in Palm Springs, California. This precedes the arrival of golf traffic to the airport for the PGA Tour at nearby La Quinta.

Having accepted its first load of SAF on 14 January the company will continue to receive a consistent supply and, as additional supply becomes available, will expand availability to its other 18 FBO locations.

“This shipment of SAF is the first of many more to come and represents another key component in support of our commitment to reducing business aviation's impact on the environment,” says Ross Aviation CEO Brian Corbett. “It dovetails perfectly with our other sustainability initiatives already underway across our network, such as our 'Fly More. Leave Less.' carbon offset programme.”

Avfuel manager of alternative fuels Keith Sawyer adds: “Avfuel is thankful to partner with Ross Aviation on furthering its sustainability initiatives with the provision of SAF for its eco-conscious customer base. Together, we can help provide a real, measurable difference in reducing carbon emissions, furthering our industry's commitment to reaching net zero.”

Neste MY SAF is made from sustainably sourced, renewable waste and residue materials, such as used cooking oil. It is a fully approved drop-in fuel that, once blended with petroleum jet fuel, meets ASTM D-1655 specification for conventional jet fuel and performance standards under all operating conditions. It requires no new investments, modifications or changes to the aircraft, fuel distribution procedures or airport fuel storage tanks.
