Sun Air Jets re-certifies sustainability with NATA
Sun Air Jets has renewed its annual self-certification of the NATA Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses at its Van Nuys and Camarillo locations.
Both Sun Air Jets' southern California locations have been re-certified as Green Aviation Businesses with Tier 1 status by the NATA.

Sun Air Jets has renewed its annual self-certification of the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) Tier I Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses at its Van Nuys and Camarillo locations. These sites include the FBO, hangar, management and maintenance facilities located at Camarillo and the hangar, management and maintenance facilities located at Van Nuys.

Sun Air Jets is grateful to the NATA for developing such a practical and beneficial tool to aid businesses that are beginning their steps into a more sustainable-minded culture,” says NATA environment committee member and Sun Air director of business development Mary Brehm. “This project has inspired our team to be more mindful of our daily practices and the impact that they can have on the environment.”

The NATA Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses provides aviation businesses with a self-certification process for pursuing flexible, cost-effective options to lower their carbon footprint. It is a free industry standard designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (including CO2), increase use of more environmentally friendly energy sources, reduce waste and encourage sustainability operation-wide.

“NATA applauds Sun Air’s leadership in the early adoption of the standard and continued commitment to its pillars in pursuing its environmental goals,” adds president and CEO Curt Castagna.
