Pilot - - PILOT NOTES -

Air To­tal has been awarded the con­tract to sup­ply all avi­a­tion fu­els for three years, in­clud­ing UL91, and F34 jet fuel for Newquay’s mil­i­tary/search and res­cue air­craft. To­tal will fa­cil­i­tate a fuel han­dling qual­ity con­trol course to the Newquay re­fu­elling team, to the in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised JIG4 stan­dards, through its team of avi­a­tion in­spec­tors based in Paris. Corn­wall Air­port Newquay is one of the largest UK cus­tomers for To­tal’s GA depart­ment and will re­quire short-no­tice de­liv­er­ies, po­ten­tially seven days a week.

“It’s an ex­cit­ing new di­rec­tion and mar­ket growth for us and who knows, maybe there’ll be a re­quest to sup­ply rocket fu­els in a few years time,” says Si­mon Fage, Gen­eral Avi­a­tion Area Man­ager, re­fer­ring to the fact that Newquay is one of five short­listed lo­ca­tions for a UK com­mer­cial Space Port. “Se­cu­rity of sup­ply and the abil­ity to tai­lor the ser­vice pro­vi­sion to Corn­wall Newquay’s spe­cific op­er­a­tional needs were key fac­tors that made To­tal stand out for us in the se­lec­tion process,” says Richard Thomas­son, Air­port Op­er­a­tions Man­ager at Corn­wall Air­port Newquay.

To­tal has se­cu­rity of sup­ply since it owns and re­fines its own fuel at re­finer­ies in the UK and within Europe for Jet Fuel, Av­gas 100LL and the in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar UL91. To­tal also de­liv­ers on ded­i­cated avi­a­tion-fuel de­liv­ery trucks for ex­tra re­as­sur­ance of fuel qual­ity.
