Making Changes Today for a Better Tomorrow

In the current climate, the need to be environmentally considerate has never been greater. As a business looking toward the future, Sun Air Jets realizes that responsible private jet operators have a duty to do all they can to reduce their impact on our environment.

We are proud to state that we are taking steps to ensure that we are as green and environmentally considerate as possible. See below to learn more about how we work to safeguard the future of our business and our planet.

Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Sun Air Jets is one of the first Fixed Base Operators to offer sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). We currently offer this fuel at the same rate as conventional jet fuel. As a result, there has never been a better reason to utilize this resource to cut carbon emissions by up to 23%.

Sustainable fuel is derived from organic and renewable materials instead of being traditionally refined from petroleum. As a result, it represents a more ethical choice. It also allows our clients and company to reduce our carbon footprint.

Green Hangars

Expanding our space shouldn’t mean increasing the impact on our environment. Our two new hangars at Van Nuys airport, while comfortable and spacious, also feature inherent state-of-the-art green technology, purposefully-designed to be as environmentally friendly as possible. This is in keeping with Los Angeles World Airports commitments to the sustainability of the aviation industry. The hangars, occupying 62,000 square feet of space, include a solar rooftop system.

Carbon Offsetting

Sun Air Jets compensates for the carbon emissions released by our airplanes. Working with a leading carbon offsetting company TerraPass allows us to reduce our carbon output.

TerraPass, based in California, uses the proceeds from our investments to fund other ventures that are dedicated to reducing harm to the environment. This includes funding endeavors such as promoting wind energy, landfill methane flaring, methane digestion, and other clean energy means. The credit gained by carbon offsetting ensures that any emissions are balanced with sustainable solutions elsewhere.

Noise Pollution and Our Neighbors

Sun Air Jets appreciates that pollution extends further than just emissions. Noise pollution affects the communities in which we operate, which is why we subscribe to the Quieter Nights Program. This program is briefed to all of our operational staff to ensure that the correct procedures are followed so that we may exist in harmony with our neighbors. The proof of this commitment is our repeated success in being awarded the Friendly Flyer Award.
