The “Turbine-Engined Fleets of the World’s Airlines” guide has been produced every year since 1970 for customers of BPTO 2197, BPTO 2380 and the other Turbo Oils now offered by Eastman Aviation Solutions. The guide is made available to members of the aviation community on request. Eastman Chemical Company acquired the aviation turbo oils business from BP on June 1, 2014, and this year’s guide is the first to be published by Eastman.
The guide is based on data collected from an annual survey of the world’s airlines, and is the only free, in-depth listing of the 57,000 turbine-engine equipped aircraft flying commercially today. This unique fleet guide is meant to be a valuable and useful resource throughout the year to professionals in the industry.
The “Turbine-Engined Fleets of the World’s Airlines” guide has been used to pinpoint emerging trends and transitions within the airline industry through documented changes in the survey data. In recent years, the guide identified the substantial increase in the number of aircraft transitioning from standard engine oils to cleaner and more efficient options.
“Eastman’s products, such as Skydrol aviation hydraulic fluids, are already known for being high quality, so we are thrilled to bring that product together with BP turbo oils, and SkyKleen aviation solvents to form Eastman Aviation Solutions,” says Matthew Stockum, business unit manager, Eastman Aviation Solutions. “Eastman is also known for our technical expertise and superior customer service, so continuing the longstanding tradition of distributing the guide was an important objective for us.”
“We want to assure our customers that all of the products offered under the Eastman Aviation Solutions brand are indeed the same products they know and trust, and our new team will allow for even more improved product and service offerings to our customers,” says Rodger Harris, global commercial director, Eastman Aviation Solutions. “The 2014 turbine-engined fleet guide is just one such offering.”
