This extensive 3-day class provides broad coverage of aviation fuel specifications and test methods. The course focuses on how specifications are used to control the quality of aviation fuels and why they affect product performance and availability. Emphasizing practical applications, the course covers the development of specifications and methods, highlights past and current problems, explains methods of testing and manufacturing aviation fuels and discusses transportation systems. Interaction of aviation fuels with aircraft engines and ground equipment is also stressed.
The class is taught in a participatory atmosphere and includes access to numerous hands-on samples of aviation fuel equipment. In addition to the course workbook, you will also receive a copy of ASTM's manual on Aviation Fuel Quality Control Procedures, as well as copies of various ASTM standards.
By the end of this class you will be able to:
Anyone needing a general understanding of fuel specifications and quality control, especially supervisors, managers, and professionals new to the field in:
Not intended for laboratory technicians or those who run the tests because it does not address detailed conduct of the various methods.
Class starts at 8:00 a.m. each day and ends at 4:30 p.m. on days 1 and 2. Following lunch on the third day, an airport fueling facility may be included in the course provided such a visit is accepted by the local airport authorities.

Roger Gaughan, Aviation Fuels Consultant
Roger is the Vice Chair of the ASTM Spark and Compression Ignition Aviation Fuels Subcommittee (ASTM D02.J02) and the Chair of the CRC Aviation Gasoline and Piston Fuels Group. He has been involved in aviation fuels research and provided technical assistance for over 30 years. He recently retired from ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company where he carried out projects related to jet fuel and aviation gasoline.
His wide range of research interests included jet fuel lubricity properties, mechanistic studies of filter coalescence, detection and quantification of microbial contamination in jet fuel & aviation gasolines, development of analytical methods and techniques for identification of contaminants, development of ExxonMobil's unleaded aviation gasoline, combustion research and discerning the impact of crude oil quality on aviation fuels. He was routinely responsible for conducting inspections from refinery to airport, ensuring aviation fuel quality throughout the distribution system. Resolving product quality issues in the field and conducting inspections continue to be a focus in his consulting activities.
Organized in 1898, ASTM is one of the world's largest voluntary standards development organizations. ASTM standards have grown to be among the world's most widely used and accepted documents. The 82-volume Annual Book of ASTM Standards contain 13,000 standards written by 34,000 members on our 140 technical committees. Committee D02 on Petroleum Products, Liquid Fuels, and Lubricants developed the standards used in this course.
