FAA Paving the Way for G100UL
It resembles the moment has actually ultimately concerned obtain the lead out. General Aviation Modifications, Inc.(far better understood by the phrase “GAMI “)has actually introduced that the FAA has actually authorized STCs licensing use itsG100UL tm unleaded high-octane avgas.
The STC covers a preliminary authorized listing of airplane and also engines certain to this STC, as well as it’s a large checklist, with thousands of authorizations. As time and also experience with the brand-new gas progresses, the AML (Approved Model List) for the STC will certainly be broadened to various other airplane and also their relevant engines, which successfully ought to supply accreditation, asserts GAMI, for a lot of the ignition piston powered airplane in the basic air travel fleet.
In working together with the FAA, stated GAMI, along with the regular examinations that are presently in procedure, 2 extra examinations need to offer the needed information to substantially increase the range of the initial Approved Model List. With the effective conclusion of these examinations, search for G100UL avgas to be a straight substitute for 100LL gas.
Having this brand-new unleaded gas accepted is simply component of the no-lead formula. Circulation of the gas will certainly be essential to bring this to fulfillment. GAMI is collaborating with Avfuel Corporation, a worldwide vendor of aeronautics gas as well as solutions. These 2 entities will certainly operate in tandem to make certain that the G100UL gas is offered with the circulation chain relocating the gas from manufacturing to pump.
Looking past this first phase, with an increased AML and also conveniently offered G100UL at the pump, GAMI anticipates existing 100LL gas to disappear from the marketplace, though how much time that takes is anyone’s assumption. There allow obstacles to get over, consisting of those discussed, such as obtaining STCs for the rest of the fleet as well as broadening the circulation chain past a solitary collaboration.
