Aeroplex first to self-certify as NATA Green Aviation Business

Aeroplex Group Partners has become the first airport developer to self-certify under the National Air Transportation Association's Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses.Aeroplex certified both its Long Beach (LGB) and Van Nuys (VNY) general aviation and business aircraft centers under NATA's sustainability standard.This is an industry standard designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including CO2, increase the use of more environmentally friendly energy sources, reduce waste, and encourage sustainability operation-wide.In January of 2021, Aeroplex completed a solar energy rooftop at its Long Beach Airport facility. Comprised of 954 rooftop panels and over 55,000 square feet, the rooftop system generates 380 Kilowatts of solar power. This reduces the carbon emissions by the equivalent of 47,735 gallons of gasoline or the energy from 49 homes in a year."In all of our airport design programs, we deliver first-class, sustainable facilities and amenities based on the latest best practices, including Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification and other state/local standards," said Aeroplex President andamp; CEO Curt Castagna. "We collaborate and consult with our national business aviation clients and airports to address the unique needs of aircraft owners, operators, and flight crews, while optimizing opportunities for integrating rational sustainable development practices."Developed by a working group under NATA's Environment Committee, the NATA Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses helps companies pursue cost-effective options to lower their carbon footprint.
