Welcome to Baere!
This is where your fuel and lubricant solutions begin.

Baere is a woman-owned business certified in the state of Indiana, formed to fill a niche market in aerospace material management, specifically fuels, lubricants, adhesives, paints, and other organic coatings and seals.
Research on aerospace fuels and lubricants continues at unprecedented rates.   New fuels from bio-renewable sources, cleaner burning synthetic fuels, and opportunities away from foreign crude oil provides opportunities.   It also raises questions -on the impacts of use, -on deployment, -on specifications and certifications.

You have questions...  We have answers. 

2017 Starting Out Busy!
Can January already be behind us?  Winter has never really come to central Indiana this year.  Oh we have spats of snow, but they are followed by rain and breezes.  We've had quite a lot of rain, so I think I am glad it isn't piled in drifts around my driveway.

That being said, I haven't had much time to contemplate the erratic swings in temperature, as I have been busy on not one but two major projects in the office.

Coming off of a great 2016 where most of my time was spent supporting the FAA's Piston Aviation Fuel Initiative (PAFI), I have added a turbine fuel project to my aviation gasoline work.  Oh, I am still busily supporting all the test programs that continue moving us forward towards "getting the lead out" of our aviation gasoline.  The work there continues at accelerating speed.  But I have also added a research project on turbine fuel.

If you have been visiting this site over the last few years, you may have noticed that the industry is moving forward with incorporating alternatively produced jet fuels into the acceptable slate of liquid energy used in our turbine engines.  And moving fast.  At this point it is pretty clear, we the industry are ready to burn it, you out there, just need to make it.  And a lot of it.

So now we are at a point where we can stop and look at where we are and where we have been in our testing requirements.  To that end, Baere Aerospace has been contracted to look at the test specifications that we use when testing fuel.  Where did they come from, why do we do them, and what can we do with all that data we collect.  It has been an interesting history project, we've been making jet fuel for a very long time!

So I have been spending December and January reading specifications, reviewing tests, and (GASP!) spending time in the library!  I do love a good technical library!!!  I am starting to put it all together and issue a report.  If you want to see how the story ends, you'll have to check out the Coordinating Research Council, www.CRCAO.ORG.  That is where the report will be published once it is written and reviewed.  In the meantime, check out some of the other very interesting reports CRC has sponsored recently.  Despite what you have been told, jet fuel and turbine engine design is still a very busy place!
