Chief test pilot Robert Lambert noted: “The flight was uneventful and the engine performed flawlessly – it did not even seem to notice that it was burning sustainable fuel.”

“We have shown that Williams’ engines can utilize 100% SAF to decarbonize business aviation,” said
Gregg Williams, chairman, president and CEO of Williams International, and copilot of the flight test

“The next critical step is to accelerate the production of SAF to make it more widely available and affordable.”
