The Aviation Fuels & Additives Training Course enables attendees to develop specialist skills in a rapidly growing field in the aviation industry. This course covers vital knowledge areas, particularly in relation to the increase in new semi-synthetic fuel blends entering the market and the work around the world to accelerate deployment of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFs).
The course is targeted at aerospace professionals working in areas affected by aviation fuels and additives, for example new aviation fuel clearances, future equipment and sub-system design (fluids & gauging), process and strategy, in-service support, aviation fuel and additive production and processing.
The course is 5 days in length and includes an evening dinner and speaker session. The course is hosted at the University of Sheffield’s world class facilities, including the Diamond and Sustainable Aviation Fuels Innovation Centre (SAF-IC)
The course has proven to be extremely popular in recent years and there are limited spaces available, therefore applicants are encouraged to book early.

Specifically, the course will enable its attendees to:
· Demonstrate a thorough understanding of current practice in fuel specification testing, its limitations and latest test methodology developments.
· Develop knowledge of the relationship between fuel properties and performance and additives and the impact on aircraft and gas turbine safety, performance, emissions, material compatibility and reliability.
· Establish an appreciation of fuel performance and design limits to support the design, development, certification and in-service support of fuel related aircraft and gas turbine systems.
· Understand the role and impact fuels and additives can play on the environmental sustainability of the aerospace industry.
· Understand the latest developments and future direction in evaluation and qualification of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) blends including drop-in and non drop-in 100% SAF.
· Be able to undertake investigation work of in-service fuel system and component problems and issues and interpret fuel analysis data.
