RD Petroleum Aviation taking off
The Flying New Zealand National Championships in February have been a highlight for RD Petroleum. Our Timaru Avgas site proved to be very popular. RD Petroleum provided a BBQ and cold drinks for the occasion, and there was lots of interest and sales through our new Timaru Avgas site.
RD Petroleum is expanding into aviation fuel in Invercargill and is on track to have the site up and running by the end of May, with it being fully accessible by RD Petroleum aviation customers with their Carnet card. The site, which replaces Air BPs Avgas site, will have both Jet A-1 and Avgas for sale.
RD Petroleum is also planning a site in Haast, the project is on track and we will hopefully have the site in place in August. It will provide locals with Avgas and Jet A-1.
Warbirds Over Wanaka was a monumental event, being the 30th anniversary event. We had a great catch-up with some of our customers and really enjoyed the show. New Zealand really has a fantastic industry with some talented pilots.
