The FAA PAFI Initiative
Work continues at the FAA on the Piston Aviation Fuel Initiative. The multi-million dollar program continues to forge ahead in their effort to identify a no-lead, high octane aviation gasoline replacement and all of the involved parties from Atlantic City to the subcontractors like Baere have spent the last several weeks swimming in data.
Unlike what you hear about most "government programs" the schedule on this one is not slipping, so everyone is burning the midnight oil to keep on track. There is a very nice summary of all of the testing that was done in Phase I on the FAA website, http://www.faa.gov/about/initiatives/avgas/. The presentation about the testing gives a flavor of just how much data is being generated on the four fuel contenders. That is also the website to watch for new press releases as the program gets ready to move from Phase I to Phase II. And if you thought Phase I was big, wait until you see Phase II!!!
We at Baere can't say much about the work, but we like to think that we are a contributor to keeping the piston aviation industry safe and viable.
