Castle & Cooke Aviation, along with Avfuel Corporation, is proud to offer operators flying in for professional football’s Big Game on February 13, 2022, access to sustainable aviation fuel.  Avfuel Corporation—Castle & Cooke Aviation’s branded fuel supplier—will deliver a truckload (approximately 8,000 gallons) of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation FuelTM* to the Van Nuys FBO in early February in time for traffic headed to football’s main event. Operators can purchase the SAF from Castle & Cooke Aviation through the Avfuel Contract Fuel program. The truckload provides a 19 metric ton reduction in carbon emissions over its lifecycle. This provides the same climate benefit as reducing the emissions from 4.1 passenger vehicles to zero over the course of a year. Additional truckloads will be delivered based on demand.

With its location less than 25 miles from SoFi Stadium, excellent customer service, elegant facilities and access to sustainable aviation fuel for the event, Castle & Cooke Aviation provides a premier choice for flight operators headed to the Big Game.  

Castle & Cooke Aviation’s team urges flight operators to act quickly to reserve their placement. Operators interested in flying in to the FBO for the event must secure a parking reservation between February 4 and 16. When making reservations, flight operators can also request a fuel up with SAF. From February 9 – 14, the FAA requires a slot reservation. Castle & Cooke Aviation has been allocated a limited number of arrival and departure slots by the FAA and NFL.

“The Big Game is a major event for aviation and we’re thrilled it’s coming to our region this year,” said Tony Marlow, Castle & Cooke Aviation’s president of aviation operations. “Our team is ready to provide operators with the non-stop excellence and non-stop elegance customary of the Castle & Cooke Aviation brand; with the added bonus of sustainable aviation fuel for the event, we continue our efforts to be a good neighbor. We were Avfuel’s first FBO to receive a demonstrative load of SAF back in 2019 and we couldn’t be more proud to offer it yet again to our eco-conscious customers flying in for the event.”

*Neste MY SAF is made from sustainably sourced, renewable waste and residue materials—such as used cooking oil. It is a fully approved drop-in fuel that, once blended with petroleum jet fuel, meets ASTM D-1655 specification for conventional jet fuel and performance standards under all operating conditions. This makes Neste MY SAF an optimum solution to directly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from aircraft, requiring no new investments, modifications or changes to the aircraft, fuel distribution procedures or airport fuel storage tanks. SAF is the most effective way to reduce a flight’s carbon footprint. In the future, SAF could deliver up to 80% less greenhouse gas emissions over its lifecycle versus traditional jet fuel if used in its neat, concentrated form.
