Thirteen aviation trade associations representing all facets of the industry authored a letter to Senators Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), urging them to support U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) efforts to â€œresearch, test, and deploy biofuels in the aviation sector.â€
â€œIt is our collective belief that the ongoing efforts of the United States military on alternative fuels are helping reduce the cost of those alternatives and will ultimately help reduce our reliance on foreign oil,â€ the letter read. â€œDODâ€™s work is being leveraged to move more quickly toward commercial viability of alternatives by demonstrating large scale production, as well as making prices competitive.â€
