As the sole industry using leaded fuel, general aviation is increasingly coming under the microscope because of environmental concerns. A petition already has been filed with the Environmental Protection Agency to limit the use of 100LL.
Learn about the petition, the EPA’s response, and actions the GA industry is taking to create a suitable alternative fuel at AOPA Aviation Summit in Tampa, Fla. In addition to learning about these initiatives, you’ll have a chance to participate in the “Future of Avgas” forum at 2 p.m. on Nov. 5.
To have the panel address your fuel-related questions, submit your questions now to AOPA. AOPA will review the questions and ask the panelists.
Panelists include some of the leaders spearheading the move from leaded to unleaded fuel: General Aviation Manufacturers Association Vice President of Certification Walter Desrosier, EAA Vice President of Industry and Regulatory Affairs Earl Lawrence, EPA Nonroad Center Director Glenn Passavant, and FAA Fuels Specialist Mark Rumizen.
A new FAA policy on obstructive sleep apnea that addresses many of the concerns raised by AOPA is scheduled to take effect March 2.
AOPA and the National Business Aviation Association have jointly filed an amicus, or friend of the court, brief in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals as part of the ongoing legal battle over the future of Santa Monica Municipal Airport.
AOPA worked with the flight training industry and FAA to quickly resolve a problem that suddenly put many rating applications on hold.
