FAA approves Avfuel online training

Avfuel Corporation has attained FAA approval for its online fuel safety training programs, which are part of the Avfuel Training System (ATS).

FBOs and operators can now utilize Avfuel’s online Line Fuel Service and Supervisory Fuel Service Training to ensure compliance with FAA fuel safety regulations as outlined by 14 CFR 139.321.

“With the new designation, Avfuel became the only aviation fuel supplier with an in-house FAA-approved online safety training program,” said Buffey Muth, Avfuel’s marketing manager.

“As a fuel supplier we have an ethical responsibility to support our customers in meeting business aviation’s rigorous safety standards. We’re proud to offer our branded FBOs a substantially lower-cost training option to meet those standards.”

In addition to its FAA approval, Avfuel has launched a new training platform. The new Avfuel Training System features a state-of-the-art online learning environment that allows FBO management to more easily centralize and implement staff training.

“We’re a high-tech industry, and our training system should be on pace with that,” said Muth. “Now, when customers visit the online portion of the ATS, they’re presented with a more intuitive learner and manager dashboard with a more modern interface.

“It also offers easy access from any device, a knowledgebase, a quick-reference tool, more efficient management tools, easier reporting and other conveniences, including certain customizable, opt-in solutions for a more tailored training experience.”

The ATS Fuel Safety courses satisfy FAA requirements for 14 CFR part 139 training. Along with the online program, Avfuel will continue to host its FAA-Approved Supervisory Fuel Training seminars throughout the country multiple times per year.

“It’s crucial that new supervisors undergo initial hands-on supervisory training as a best practice” said Randy Harrison, Avfuel’s quality assurance manager.

“Supervisors in charge of line training, fuel safety and refueling operations carry a great responsibility to support the safety of flight operations and passengers. Avfuel’s supervisory training seminar is an effective way to ensure preparedness.”
