Supplemental Type Certificate Fee Reimbursement Program

Going Green with Unleaded Avgas

Long Beach Airport is launching a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) Fee Reimbursement Program. In line with its vision for a cleaner future, the FAA plans to completely phase out the use of leaded aviation fuel by 2030. To facilitate this transition, we strongly encourage all pilots and operators of piston-powered aircraft to obtain an STC and swiftly apply for reimbursement by completing the form below. You could be eligible for a reimbursement of up to $300 to support this essential change. The reimbursement is only eligible for LGB based aircraft.

Join us in making aviation safer and more environmentally friendly for all.
