Aviation Kerosene: Performance and Stability - Petrobras

Aviation Kerosene

Aviation kerosene, also known as QAV-1, is the fuel used by airplanes and helicopters equipped with turbine engines, such as pure jet, turboprops, or turbofans.

Our kerosene's thermal stability ensures the aircraft's performance. Because it is more stable, QAV-1 also allows the time between scheduled aircraft maintenance servicing to be increased, reducing costs for airlines and airplane and helicopter owners.

The kerosene we produce is compatible with the Jet A-1 specifications laid down by the AFQRJOS (Aviation Fuel Quality Requirements for Jointly Operated Systems). We developed the Quality Assurance System for Aviation Kerosene which has systematized quality monitoring procedures. The laboratory tests and assays are checked periodically by means of audits and inter-lab programs.
