Royal Netherlands Air Force now operates her F-16 Fighting Falcons on SAF
The Royal Netherlands Air Force now operates her flights from Leeuwarden Airbase on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The SAF is supplied by SkyNRG and Shell Aviation and produced in the US by World Energy from used cooking oil, at this moment the only producer of SAF worldwide.
The SAF supplied in Leeuwarden is enough for the first half of 2019. In the coming years, the Royal Netherlands Air Force aims to gradually increase the blend percentage (now 5%) and eventually operate all her aircraft on SAF.
