saffron It is reported that in February 2022, Safran Helicopter Engines and the civil aviation division of ST Engineering signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to study the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) in helicopter engines, and to support operators in the use of these fuels. In March, Safran Helicopter Engines and Bell Textron Inc also signed a partnership to evaluate sustainable aviation fuel use on the Bell 505 and Arrius 2R engine. On the aircraft engine side, research is also progressing … After the maiden flight of the A319neo equipped with a CFM LEAP-1A engine with 100% SAF in its tank in November 2021, Safran Aircraft test teams conducted engines at the end of February 2022, a ground test campaign with a LEAP-engine 1A runs on 100% sustainable fuel. This test consists of measuring gas and particulate emissions at the engine outlet with a JET A-1, then at 100% SAF. The results of these tests, conducted as part of the VOLCAN research project, will be presented within 2022.
