A total of 23 business aircraft arrived at Geneva Airport for the annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) using alternative fuels, the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) announced.

The Aircraft that participated in this first-ever EBACE SAJF Fly-In are showcased at the event’s static display. While Gulfstream flew a G450 across the Atlantic Ocean in 2011, the focus comes as U.S. politicians have stepped up rhetoric about aviation’s impact on the economy.

Twenty-three business aircraft that arrived powered by sustainable, alternative fuels will be on display at EBACE this week in Geneva, Switzerland.

“Today, it is more evident than ever how unified our industry is in working toward the goal of continually reducing emissions through innovation,” said NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen. “Business aviation has always led the way in promoting technologies that advance the sustainability of flight, and it is appropriate that we highlight our focus in this area through this record-setting fly-in.”

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin was recently awarded $219,692 against JetCard Plus

Two companies selling jet cards look like they have turned off the lights, at least in terms of having active websites. Ascension Air, an Atlanta-based operator selling shares and jet cards, which is under fire from upset customers, has seen its website offline for more than a week. At the same time, JetCard Plus, a Miami-based broker of jet cards no longer appears to have a working website. Bloomberg reports on May 14 a Florida court ordered JetCard Plus Inc. of Miami to pay $219,692 to Steven T. Mnuchin Inc. Google indicates its office location closed and its phone number is no longer active.
