Fuel Truck and 24-Hour Station Update
A 24-hour fuel service station will be installed by Phillips 66 using a company from Alabama. The company does all Phillips 66 work and will be in North Carolina the first week of April.
The station was scheduled for installation in March, but COVID-19 has set the company back due to installation staff being sick or in quarantine. The Airport staff expects an increase in sales, especially for the AV gas 100 low lead. Jet A will also be available for after hours customers. This is just another step towards improved customer service that Surry County wants to extend to the aviation community.
Additionally, all Airport operations staff members have been trained on the Phillips 66 fuel truck, which can help increase fuel sales and fuel airplanes more efficiently. The fuel truck mans mobility—the truck can go to the aircraft versus planes being towed to the fuel pump. Having everyone trained gives staff more flexibility to provide better services.
