NTSB Joins The Fight Against Misfueling

Its been under two months since NATA released the Safety 1st Misfueling Prevention Program and nearly 1,500 users have completed the free awareness training. Misfueling prevention is a significant priority and fortunately, preventing misfuelings is not a complex task. As the Safety 1st Misfueling Prevention Program describes, a few simple steps completed by pilots, line service professionals, FBO customer service representatives and managers can dramatically reduce the risk of misfueling.

This week, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) joined the effort to prevent incidents of misfueling with the release of two Safety Alerts,

Both of these NTSB Safety Alerts specifically reference the Safety 1st Misfueling Prevention Program and emphasize the important steps for preventing misfueling outlined in the program.

Everyone has a stake in preventing misfuelings. Take a few minutes today to read the NTSB Safety Alerts and have your team view the Safety 1st Misfueling Prevention Program at:

NATA Launches Free, Industry-Wide Misfueling Prevention Awareness Training

This week, the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) released the Safety 1st General Aviation Misfueling Prevention Program – a free, online-based awareness program for pilots, line service professionals, FBO general managers and customer service representatives.

NATA, recognizing the need for an industry-wide misfueling prevention resource, developed the program to conform with standards from the Energy Institute and the NATA Safety 1st Operational Best Practices. The program consists of four different misfueling informational tracks, resources and certificates of completion.

NATA thanks the AOPA Air Safety Institute and the General Aviation Manufacturers Association for their assistance in producing this program. Additionally, the program was funded by grants from Eastern Aviation Fuels, EPIC Aviation, Phillips 66 and others.
