The aviation industry has a strong commitment to decarbonize. ConnectSkies is spearheading that commitment by educating our customers and increasing demand for sustainable fuels while committing to selling only the most sustainable aircraft on the market. By championing emerging technologies to be brought to market and added to our showroom of available aircraft as soon as they are certified, ConnectSkies leads the industry in commitment to sustainability.
Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF)
Sustainable Alternative Fuel (SAF) is derived from a variety of sources including but not limited to cooking oil, waste gasses, sugars, agricultural residues, and even trash.
ConnectSkies is so passionate about increasing the demand for SAF because using these alternative fuels can decrease an aircrafts carbon footprint by up to 85%.
With our goal of decarbonizing the skies well before the UK 2050 deadline, the use of SAF is an excellent way to get there more quickly while net zero emissions technology is still emerging.
The main benefit of SAF is that it is available now and it is considered a “drop-in” fuel, which means that it can be used to fuel an aircraft in the same way kerosene is currently “dropped-in” to aircraft now. Currently, SAF is only available in a select number of airports across the world. We believe that is not enough!
The future is bright for the sustainable aviation industry. As the availability of SAF increases and the price is able to decrease, more aircraft will start using SAF. As the commercial aviation begins its post pandemic recovery, it is important that those in the business aviation sector lead the way in sustainability and create a greater demand for SAF. As the business aviation sector increases the demand for SAF, therefore creating greater availability and eventually lowering the cost, this will put pressure on commercial airlines to include the use of SAF in their post pandemic recovery models. As the public demands such measures in order to continue visiting the beautiful places around the world and keeping them beautiful by moving towards zero emissions in travel, this will compel the industry to adapt.
