    TO DISCUSS AVIATION FUELS PROPERLY, IT IS best to review briefly the development of the different types of fuel and describe the quality requirements posed by the various engines and aircraft. The resulting specifications define the required fuel qualities and specify the standard methods to be used. The international acceptance and enforcement of these specifications ensure the availability of fuels for all types of aircraft on a worldwide basis. It is neither feasible nor desirable to cover in detail all international specifications in this chapter. Instead, the chapter is based on the fact that all major specifications measure and control similar properties. Typical examples of the physical and chemical requirements in current specifications are included for each of the major aviation gasoline (AVGAS used in pistonengine aircraft) and jet fuel grades.
