This fuel is FAA-certified for use in up to 65% of the US piston fleet. Unleaded UL94 Avgas meets or exceeds the minimum octane requirements of many of the engines manufactured by Lycoming, Continental, and Rotax. Swift UL94 Avgas is made of the same base hydrocarbon components as 100LL, without the addition of tetraethyl lead. This proprietary unleaded fuel formulation is a blend of hydrocarbons designed to meet the fuel specification standards of ASTM D7592, D7547, and D4814.
A record number of 63 students attended camp in 2017, including 16 high school students. A contingent of 26 volunteers helped throughout the week – including pilots, speakers, teachers, and assistants. A huge Thank-You goes out to our sponsors: The LaPorte Aero Club; Braje, Nelson & Janes; General Insurance Services; LaPorte Aviation Services; and Woolpert. Without their financial assistance, camp fees would be considerably higher. Click the above link for pictures and more information.
