IAF’s AN-32 AIRCRAFT FORMALLY CERTIFIED TO OPERATE ON INDIGENOUS BIO-JET FUEL

IAF’s formidable workhorse, the Russian made AN-32 aircraft, was formally fleet certified to fly on blended aviation fuel containing up to 10% indigenous bio-jet fuel, today. The approval certificate was received at the aero-engine test facilities at Chandigarh by Air Commodore Sanjiv Ghuratia, Air Officer Commanding, BRD, AF on behalf of the IAF from Mr. P Jayapal, Chief Executive CEMILAC.
During the last one year, IAF has undertaken a series of evaluation tests and trials with this 'green' aviation fuel. The scope of these trials was in consonance with international aviation standards. The indigenous bio-jet fuel was first produced by CSIR-IIP lab at Dehradun in 2013 but could not be tested or certified for commercial use on aircraft due to lack of test facilities in the civil aviation sector. On 27 July 2018, Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa had formally announced IAF’s intention to permit the use of all its resources for testing and certifying indigenously developed bio-jet fuel. Since then, IAF’s flight test crew and engineers have been evaluating the performance of this fuel against international standards. Apart from being an aviation milestone, this is a huge step in towards ‘Make in India’ mission as bio-fuel would be produced from Tree Borne Oils (TBOs) sourced from tribal areas and farmers, augmenting their income substantially..
