Signature Flight Support is set to purchase and operate the only existing self-service fuel facility at the Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) in Santa Barbara, California, US.
The Self-Service AvGas 100LL facility is set to offer an additional option to recreational pilots for refuelling their aircraft.
Signature’s self-service customers will get benefits such as complimentary parking on its transient ramp for the day of fueling and pedestrian access to and from the airport operations area from its fixed-base operator facilities.
Signature Flight Support president and chief operating officer Maria Sastre said: “Signature’s thrilled to be able to offer pilots another opportunity, in addition to Signature’s Weekend TakeOff AvGas discount programmes, to save on their fuel purchases.
“We’re confident that this additional self-service AvGas facility further expresses our commitment to both the local Santa Barbara pilot community and general aviation community as a whole.”
Signature Flight Support is a BBA Aviation company. It has operated at the Santa Barbara airport for 20 years and continues to provide its service to all pilots frequenting the facility.
Signature noted that the addition of the new self-service fuel facility at SBA is the 14th installation within its North American network.
Located eight miles north-west of downtown Santa Barbara, SBA serves more than 750,000 passengers a year.
Featuring two 4,000ft-long parallel general aviation runways, the airport hosts a 20,000ft2 terminal building.
