“Bell is an active supporter of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association’s sustainable fuel initiative, and we are committed to seeking eco-friendlier solutions for rotorcraft,” said Michael Thacker, executive vice president, technology and commercial business. “As the industry moves toward a greener future, Bell’s decision to introduce SAF in our training and demonstration aircraft is a reflection of our dedication to this shared goal and to providing clean alternatives for the environment.”  

 

All Bell operated demonstration and training fleet aircraft, totalling 20 aircraft, will begin using sustainable aviation fuel starting March 25. SAF provides a cleaner source of fuel to power rotorcraft and decreases environmental impact of general aviation.
