NATA Participates in GA Coalition Release of AVGAS Transition Plan

The General Aviation Avgas Coalition is calling for the FAA to implement a comprehensive program to develop aircraft engine emissions and airworthiness regulatory standards to reduce or remove lead from the fuel used in piston-engine aircraft.

”EPA recognizes the value of piston-engine general aviation throughout the United States and specifically in remote regions,” wrote Ms. Oge. “Any EPA action to require piston-engine aircraft to reduce emissions of lead in the future will involve a thorough public process of identifying options and will consider safety, economic impacts and other impacts. The EPA is committed to working with these stakeholders to keep piston-engine aircraft flying in an environmentally acceptable and safe manner throughout the United States.”

“The General Aviation Avgas Coalition and the EPA have worked closely to understand the issues involved in finding a solution ever since it issued its Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking earlier this year,” concluded Byer. “We look forward to continuing our work with the EPA.”
