Today, ASTM International announced that it will hold a popular two-day training course on aviation fuels at EnginZone in Lima, Peru, on April 23-24. The course, Aviation Fuels: Specifications and Test Methods, focuses on how technical standards help control the quality of aviation fuels and why they affect product performance and availability. 

Participants will learn to:

  • discuss bulk and trace properties of aviation fuel,
  • describe past and current problems related to aviation fuel,
  • identify various methods of testing aviation fuels and how they are manufactured, 
  • evaluate methods of fuel handling, sampling, and transportation, and
  • recognize the interaction of aviation fuels with aircraft engines and ground equipment. 

The course will be offered in English and simultaneously translated into Spanish. Taught in a participatory atmosphere, the course includes access to numerous hands-on samples of aviation fuel equipment. Participants will receive a certificate and 1.4 Continuing Education Units upon completion.

In addition to a workbook, participants will also receive a copy of ASTM International’s manual on Aviation Fuel Quality Control Procedures and copies of various standards.
