Self serve fuel is the future of General Aviation!
TPA believes that Taunton should be a leader by aggressively pursuing 100LL AVGAS self service, which will make our airplanes more useful and our airport more of a destination.
This may not be easy to do. However, The Association hopes to work with the Taunton Municipal Airport Commission, Massachusetts DOT Aeronautics, the Federal Aviation Administration and all other parties to resolve any barriers to this goal. Self serve fueling is working very well at airports our members fly to, all over the country, and it will be a very worthwhile addition to our airport.
Several TPA members, led by Frank Nowak and Steve Goldin, are researching this issue and we will have much more information to post in the near future.
3/25/15 Taunton Airport Commission monthly meeting
This is taken from the New Business section:
“Fred (Terra) reported that at the same meeting with the fire department, with all the new regulations that went into effect January 1, 2015, self-service fueling is now allowed at Ma airports, which is good news for everyone. We will be looking into funding so that we can get self-fueling here”
