At Avfuel Corporation, our focus is a 100% dedication to aviation. We’re passionate about our jobs and the role we play in aviation, connecting people, businesses, cultures and governments. It’s a responsibility that goes well beyond fuel supply.
We take a people-first approach to business, granting easy-access to experts across a spectrum of fields: supply, fuel quality assurance, equipment, insurance, trip planning, credit, taxes, sales, marketing, etc. But what makes these experts unique is their ability to empathize with our customers. And with employees who have been in the cockpit, we’re able to understand better than most the needs of pilots.
We’ve asked our employees to share their experiences as pilots, and we’re excited for you to get to know them. Today, we’re spotlighting Thomas Huehl, Avfuel’s supply analyst.
