Last week, NATA held its first Certified QC Inspector Workshop at Wilson Air Center in Charlotte, NC. The two-day event focused exclusively on aviation fuel quality control and how to deliver clean, dry and on specification fuel to aircraft, through proper receipt, storage, and handling procedures.
The workshop was led by Steve Berry, NATA’s Trainer and Content Manager and Keith Clark, Phillips 66’s QC Technical Representative. Through classroom and hands-on sessions, attendees learned how to setup and organize fuel quality control records and documentation for the receipt of fuel and QC inspections. Attendees were also provided an industry update by Scott Drafall of Facet Filters on the status of the monitor filter issue.
NATA would like to thank Phillips 66, Facet Filters and Wilson Air Center staff for making this event possible. For more information on other upcoming NATA events, please visit www.nata.aero/events.
