Fuel Safety and Annual Inspections
Fuel safety is our primary concern each and every day at KLVJ. We take extensive measures to ensure each gallon of fuel at KLVJ is received, stored, and dispensed properly. Our staff of NATA Certified Professional Line Service Technicians are well trained and equipped to handle this immense responsibility. I'd like to share with you a few of the ways we safeguard against any potential dangers.
Before the FBO opens at 8am each day, our staff is on the ground inspecting fuel samples and conducting quality checks. We inspect each tank and truck top to bottom, then collect and record fuel samples from every fueling port, tank drain, and filter sump. We have routine daily, monthly, quarterly, and annual checks that help us stay in control of the highest quality fuel standards.
February is our annual inspection month and I am proud to say that once again we have successfully completed our inspections on all storage tanks and trucks for 2018. Each meter has been recalibrated for precision, and all filtering elements have been changed. Our fuel farm is in great working condition and ready to continue fueling the tremendous growth at KLVJ.
I want to thank our staff for their dedication and hard work. They dutifully put in the hours, day after day, to maintain our standards and provide excellent service. We will always strive to uphold the highest industry quality standards, and if you would like to know more, feel free to give me a call and I can answer any questions you may have.
We are looking forward to a fantastic, busy flying season for 2018!
AIRPORT MAINTENANCE UPDATE
In May, the airport received a grant from the FAA for security and safety improvements. A few of the safety items that will be included in the project are: new markings for the runway, upgrades to the electrical vault for the airport lights, new illuminated runway signs, and security gate enhancements.
Projects included in the improvements include:
- All new runway markings
- All new taxiway striping
- New centerline for taxiway/Airfield Lane
- Relocating and replacing illuminated signs to comply with FAA distance standards
- New regulators

The project went out for bid in early December and a contractor has been selected. We anticipate the work will begin in Spring 2018
