What are the new trends in aviation lubricants?
There are emerging trends in aviation that will offer unprecedented challenges for lubrication technology, such as the advent of hybrid gas and electric engines, followed by fully electric-powered commercial aircraft, as well the possibility of aircraft powered by hydrogen fuel cells. As aircraft fleets grow and transform in the coming years, aviation lubricants will play an even greater role in removing heat, carrying particulate debris to oil filters, protecting engine parts, preventing deposit formation, and reducing friction and wear across a wider range of temperatures. Collaboration between suppliers and OEMs will be more important than ever to ensure success.


What are your future targets in the industry?
With our depth of expertise and proven products, ExxonMobil Aviation is excited to continue driving the industry forward with innovative products and to maintain the trust of its partners, as it has done for more than a century.
