Alternative Fuel Testing for General Aviation

Alternative Fuel Testing for General Aviation

FAAFuel

FAA Airframe and Power Plant licensed technical specialists install a turbocharged 350 horsepower engine for use in anti-detonation testing of unleaded aviation test fuels. This engine model will be used in Piston Aviation Fuels Initiative (PAFI) Phase 2 testing in simulated altitude detonation performance tests. The performance of PAFI fuels will be compared against that of a 100 low-lead (100LL) aviation gasoline.
