EASA Grants JTI Fuel STC for R44
Nashua, N.H.-based JTI Air Holdings has received certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to use its automotive gasoline to fuel Robinson R44s. JTI’s European representative, Joop van Weele of Holland, will sell the supplemental type certificate (STC) for operators and pilots using the alternative fuel. The automotive fuel is a replacement for leaded helicopter fuel, which is discontinued due to environmental concerns.
