The T-33 aircraft that will test engine performance and emissions on this first flight will also be showcased. There will be a guided tour. The biojet fuel will be on display along with the oilseed crop grown to produce it.
The biojet fuel will help grow new markets and drive rural economies. It’s a major step towards advancing sustainable sources of renewable energy. Over 40 commercial farmers in Canada have been contracted to grow 6,000 acres of crop to manufacture biofuel.
Following the event, experts and pilots will be available to the media.
