Aviation Fuel & Propulsion Lubricants-Certifications and New Technologies Course 15901001 - International


FAA will teach this two-day course that will provide you with an in-depth review of the qualification process utilised to qualify renewable jet fuels, and cover the initiatives taken to evaluate and approve alternative jet fuels, unleaded aviation gasoline and propulsion lubricants. Recent issues on aviation fuel quality control procedures and the industry/government approach to ensuring the quality control of all fuels will also be explored.


This two-day course will help you to develop competencies to manage aviation fuel and propulsion lubricants through a comprehensive study of existing evaluation and approval processes, research and development initiatives and management solutions regarding alternative fuels.
