  • From The Cockpit The heat of summer has finally subsided as the pleasant temperatures of fall have been ushered in. The heat did not keep the Shell team from attending several aviation events and spreading the word about the Shell program.

    The aviation community met at two great venues recently. First, in late June the Eastern Aviation Fuels team headed to Teterboro, New Jersey for one of three NBAA Regional Forums this year. With such a large attendance it felt almost like a full-fledged convention. Arriving Wednesday evening, the Shell team had a chance to connect with customers and business colleagues at an event hosted by Shell FBO, Meridian Aviation. The next day was spent visiting with show attendees from all over the northeast region. The second NBAA Regional Forum was held in St. Louis, Missouri. While the participation was subdued compared to Teterboro, the Shell team enjoyed visiting with customers and friends from this area of the country.

    In addition to our other travels, we once again hosted customers at the Aviator Club in Oshkosh, Wisconsin during EAA AirVenture 2015. The Aviator Club is the perfect venue for taking in the sights and sounds of the airshow. Friday night of the event, we hosted a customer appreciation dinner. We were excited to have aviation luminaries Bob Hoover, Sean Tucker, Bud Anderson, and the entire Aeroshell Aerobatic Team join us for a “fire-side chat” to discuss their experiences as aviation professionals. Everyone in attendance was thoroughly entertained as each aviator recounted tales from flying behind enemy lines in World War II to formation flying in the air shows of today.

    At EAF we have reached two significant milestones this year. The first is that we are happy to announce our 40th year in business. The second is that the Shell Aviation network now numbers over 500 FBOs. Neither of which could have been accomplished without two critical elements: super-talented employees and loyal customers. We are truly blessed from both perspectives.

    In closing, we would once again like to thank you for your business. Our team is ready and willing to serve you.

    Fly Safe!

    Shell Contract Fuel News


    To learn more about the Shell Contract Fuel program please email: contractfuel@easternaviationfuels.com or call 252-633-0066

    We are pleased to announce that Shell Contract Fuel is now compatible with FuelerLinx.

    FuelerLinx is an aviation fuel management software system and jet fuel marketplace. The program optimizes flight operations, automates the fuel purchasing process, and reduces operating costs in one easy to manage interface.

    FuelerLinx gives dispatchers and pilots the tools they need to implement cost-saving measures quickly and effectively by comparing all possible fuel prices across all locations.

    For our Shell Contract Fuel customers who use FuelerLinx, they can now view our pricing without having to upload the weekly price file. This automatic price push will not only offer our current customers ease of use, but also will make the Shell Contract Fuel program visible to the network of flight departments that FuelerLinx works with. This will ultimately result in increased applicants and

    increased contract fuel sales for our participating FBOs.

    Our goal is to have all of our branded FBOs participating in the Shell Contract fuel network. If you are interested in becoming a participating merchant, please reach out to Tracy Daniels with our Shell Contract Fuel team. She can be reached at 252.633.0066 or tdaniels@easternaviationfuels.com.
