Aviation Fuel Categories
Aviation fuel encompasses a range of specialized, high quality petroleum-based fuels containing additives used specifically for aircraft. Aviation fuel typically falls into two categories: Aviation turbine fuels (jet fuels) for turbine engines and aviation gasoline (avgas) for internal combustion engines.
Aviation fuels are required to meet strict manufacturing requirements put forth in relevant specifications. Fuel is sampled and tested at multiple production stages to ensure conformity.
Common Jet Fuel Grades
The use of kerosine jet fuel – which presents good combustion characteristics and a high energy content – hearkens back to the early days of gas turbine engine development. The jet fuels supplied in modern civil aviation are primarily Jet A-1 and Jet A, though several other grades are also in use.
- Jet A-1 Fuel: Widely available jet fuel used throughout North America and Western Europe
- Jet A Fuel: Higher freeze point than Jet A-1; Primarily used in the United States
- Jet B Fuel: Higher flammability and lower freeze point than Jet A-1; Primarily used in colder climates like Northern Canada
- TS-1 Fuel: Higher flammability and lower freeze point than Jet A-1; Main jet fuel grade available in Russia
- No.3 Jet Fuel: Chinese grade jet fuel with specifications virtually identical to Jet A-1
