Airbus: first RAF flight using SAF fuel
(CercleFinance.com) - Airbus has announced that, with the Royal Air Force (RAF) and other partners such as engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce, it has completed the world's first flight using 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) on an in-service military aircraft.
An RAF Voyager - the military variant of the Airbus A330 commercial airliner - took to the skies on Wednesday over RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, England, powered entirely by 100% sustainable aviation fuel on both engines.
Airbus said that its engineers made a significant contribution to this RAF mission by providing expertise on the ground in recent weeks.
