It represents a record number of airplanes arriving at the conference powered by sustainable alternative jet fuels (SAJF)
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.
“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.”
