STP7C: Chapter 5—Aviation Fuels

    Pages: 32    Published: Jan 1977


    Abstract

    It is difficult to discuss aviation fuels without reviewing the development history of the various types of aviation fuels and describing quality requirements in terms of official specifications produced by the cooperative efforts of engine manufacturers, airline operators, fuel suppliers, and appropriate government departments. These documents define the required fuel properties and specify the standard test methods to be used. The international validity of these specifications and rigid enforcement ensures that fuels of uniform quality are available on a worldwide basis for all types of aircraft engines.
