Abstract : The type of fuel selected for use in the United States Supersonic Transport (SST) is commercial Jet A kerosene. The importance of the fuel cost factor in SST direct operating cost, and the reasons for excluding the use of commercial Jet B aviation turbine fuel for the SST, are briefly discussed in this paper. A general description of the SST aircraft and engine fuel systems, and the typical environmental conditions to which the fuel will be exposed, are included. The SST fuels test programs are summarized. (Author)
