2020 BUSINESS AVIATION SUSTAINABILITY SUMMIT
Continued from page 45

in London, which are considered gateway markets, " will
give an opportunity to NetJets and other customers of
Signature to purchase that product (SAF). Using book
and claim gives us immediate access. "
Malta-based VistaJet, one of the world's largest
charter operators with a growing fleet of over 70 aircraft,
recently inked a similar deal with SkyNRG. The deal
will allow VistaJet customers to buy SAF from SkyNRG
through VistaJet. The SAF will then
be delivered to locations near the
fuel's production sites.
Craig Hanlon, Corteva
Agriscience's director of aviation,
reported the company recently
received a demonstration delivery
of 7,300 gallons of SAF from
AvFuel, which resulted in a 2 metric
ton reduction in net CO2 emissions.
Mark McIntyre, director of
flight operations for Mente LLC,
said his company has also made a
commitment to SAF, receiving its
first load of SAF to its fuel farm in
July. SAF is currently transported
by rail from California to Seattle to
fuel the company's four aircraft.
Mente wanted to be sure SAF
wasn't just a feel-good measure, but that the efforts are
effective in addressing climate change.
" We want to make sure we fly in a way that is socially
responsible and takes advantage of the technology and
resources - all the tools we have available to reduce our
carbon footprint, " McIntyre said.
McIntyre explained the company is operating at a
30/70 blend - 30% SAF, 70% jet fuel - and over a life
cycle of the fuel, realizing about an 18% reduction in
CO2 emissions.
In addition to the new deal with SkyNRG, VistaJet
offers a carbon offset program to passengers, considering
the immediate impact of carbon offset versus the longerterm play of widespread SAF use. Since launching in
January, 80% of VistaJet members have opted-in to the
carbon offset program, which VistaJet Chief Commercial

Officer Ian Moore said demonstrates business aviation
users' commitment to sustainability. Further, some of
the 20% who didn't opt-in have their own company
offsetting programs.
VistaJet estimates this program has helped offset
approximately 98,000 tons of CO2 on behalf of its
customers over the first half of 2020.
Mente's McIntyre encourages operators to consider
using resources to participate in book and claim options
instead of carbon offsetting. While carbon offsets can be
successful programs, carbon offsetting is reactive rather
than proactive.
" If we use book and claim in
lieu of a carbon credit, then you're
actually controlling the carbon you
released into the atmosphere, " he
explained.
Meanwhile, the U.S. legislators
have demonstrated their support
of sustainability in aviation, with
the U.S. House of Representatives
recently passing The Moving
Forward Act - a $1.5 trillion
infrastructure bill to advance
transportation sustainability. Rep.
Rick Larson (D-Wash.), chair of
the Subcommittee on Aviation
in the U.S. House Committee on
Transportation and Infrastructure,
explained the bill includes a robust
aviation section providing $1 billion in funding over
the next five years for research and development of
alternative fuel and low-emission aviation technology.
The experts all agreed. Industry demand will be the
key driver in increasing supply and decreasing price, so
work with your FBOs and fuels suppliers to implement
book and claim programs and work toward widespread
SAF availability by focusing on target-rich markets.
The Sustainability Summit was organized by the
Business Aviation Coalition for Sustainable Fuel, which
includes the Commercial Aviation Alternative Fuels
Initiative; European Business Aviation Association;
General Aviation Manufacturers Association;
International Business Aviation Council; National Air
Transportation Association; and National Business
Aviation Association. q

BOOK AND CLAIM
IS A MECHANISM
THAT ALLOWS
CUSTOMERS
WHO ARE
COMMITTED TO
SUSTAINABILITY
TO PURCHASE SAF
EVEN IF THE FUEL
IS NOT AVAILABLE
NEARBY.
