Published in Midwest Flyer Magazine June/July 2022 Digital Issue

LAKELAND, FLA. – Representatives of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) were among those at Sun ‘n Fun 2022 who discussed the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 2030 deadline to replace 100LL with a drop-in unleaded aviation fuel. Industry leaders are expressing hope that an alternate fuel will be developed in time. AOPA President and CEO Mark Baker said that 100LL would be phased out soon, even without the deadline, as there is only one plant worldwide that manufactures tetraethyl lead, and it is not expected to continue to manufacture it beyond 2030.
