In Australia, Aviation/Aerospace Australia (A/AA), today announced a partnership with the Australian Initiative for Sustainable Fuel (AISAF) to advance its commitment to the development of domestic and international markets. The move will see the well-respected AISAF formally become part of the Association. A/AA Executive Director Paul Fox said the partnership was an integral part of its work to develop a sustainable aviation and aerospace industry in Australia.
Dr. Susan Pond, Adjunct Professor in Sustainability at the United States Studies Centre, will continue to lead the program, taking on the title of Program Chair — AISAF within the A/AA structure.
“Aviation fuel is a significant component of the economy of our industry and the prospect of domestically produced sustainable fuel has benefits for the entire supply chain,” said Fox. “A/AA aims to raise awareness of this important initiative and engage its members and the sector in the journey toward a sustainable and profitable future.”
Dr. Susan Pond said the partnership with A/AA provides AISAF with additional capacity to connect with the aviation industry and export markets. “Sustainable fuels represent a major industrial development opportunity for aviation and for Australia,” Dr. Pond said.
