Fly Green

Well, if you've been yearning to make your contribution in the efforts to stem global warming, here's your chance. The e-publishing staff at AOPA points us to a company called Green Flight International, who recently completed the world's first jet aircraft flight powered completely by Biofuel. This marks a step forward for the aviation fuels market and may represent a welcome alternative for the environmentally conscious. The folks at Green Flight aren't the only interested parties either. Boeing and the US Air Force are all very interested in adding Biofuel to their capabilities.

Since Diesel itself is just just reaching the GA market it might be a little while yet before you can pull your Diesel C-172 up to the pumps, but hang on... we know you want to fly the french-fry machine.
