The general aviation industry’s goal is FAA authorization for unleaded avgas that can replace 100LL for all aircraft in the GA fleet, with a transition that can be done effectively and efficiently, with no negative impact on safety. AOPA and the industry are currently evaluating promising solutions, as well as continuing its leadership role in industry-wide testing and evaluation effort. AOPA will continue to advocate for solutions that work for all, building a coalition of stakeholders that will engage in practical and forward-thinking measures toward this future.
AOPA is building a broad partnership of those who represent many facets of the transition to an unleaded avgas future. This coalition has a single-minded purpose of steering the GA industry to an unleaded future, advocating for a smart and safe transition that works for the entire GA fleet. This coalition represents the many interests and perspectives of this transition, and is one that has pledged to work together and use the necessary resources to make unleaded avgas for all aircraft a reality.
