Helicopter and helicopter engine OEMs see the potential of sustainable aviation fuel, or SAF, to support a more ecological rotorcraft industry that will help helicopters remain relevant at a time when new vertical lift vehicles are embracing alternative fuels. These manufacturers are working tirelessly to vet SAF while encouraging the industry as a whole to embrace this cleaner alternative to fossil fuels.
What goes into testing SAF? How far are OEMs pushing the fuel in their products? What advice do they offer helicopter operators about SAF, and why do they see SAF as a game changer in the aviation industry? These questions and more will be explored at the second of HAI’s two HAI@Work webinars examining SAF and the value it brings to the helicopter industry.
Join us Sep. 30 for the second webinar, where executives from Bell Flight, Airbus Helicopters, and Safran Helicopter Engines will discuss their research on SAF, what they’ve done to test the fuel, and how they see SAF helping the helicopter industry define itself in the next generation of vertical flight.
