Air BP Lubricants was featured in a three-page spread for the 2014 Engine Yearbook - the aviation industry's 'bible' for engine maintenance and MRO. In the feature, Air BP Lubricants explains why OEMs and airlines are moving towards high-performance engine oil and how it can improve reliability and performance.

Figures contained in Air BP Lubricants' Turbine-Engined Fleets of the World's Airlines (TEF) Guide demonstrate a trend in commercial aviation toward more advanced engine technology. This transition in technology is having an effect on oil choice.
