Most of us don’t think a lot about fueling an airplane. We simply climb aboard, take our seat, and are whisked off to our destination. But gassing up a plane is a big deal, and airports large and small need to have quality aviation fueling systems in place to ensure uninterrupted service for pilots and passengers.

If you’re building a new airport, updating a current facility, or simply replacing an outdated or out-of-code fueling system, you’ve likely been considering your options for purchasing a reliable aviation fueling system. Choosing the right one can be a daunting task and can be an expensive proposition as well, so care must be taken to make the right choice from the start.

At Western Oil Services, we’re insured for work with jet fuel and all aspects of aviation fueling systems, so we stand ready to advise you on the products that are most suitable to your operation, including items such as above-ground and underground tanks, fueling cabinets, fuel skids, and dispensers and other equipment for both over-wing and single-point fueling.

We work closely with some of the top vendors in the aviation fueling business to complete your project on time and cost-effectively and will work with you to coordinate delivery schedules and more so that you’re not waiting months for your installation to be completed. Furthermore, we’ll be with you from start to finish, overseeing all aspects of your aviation fueling system installation or upgrade, including:

  • An initial consultation to determine the right system(s) for your business
  • Design and construction
  • Project management throughout the length of the installation or upgrade
  • Any site work that must be completed, such as the placement of concrete foundations or new electrical installations
  • Calibration and final testing of the system
  • Training for your employees on the proper use of the system

We understand that any system you purchase must be particular to your needs, so we strive to find the best solution and we stand behind those systems, eager to help should a problem or challenge arise that needs to be addressed in a timely manner. Our superior customer service is what’s kept us at the top of the industry in and around the Vancouver area, servicing clients that include Helijet, Harbour Air, Pitt Meadows Airport, Boundary Bay Airport, and Langley Airport.

We’re proud to say that we’ve had a hand in fueling virtually all kinds of flying objects and understand that fuel systems vary significantly from aircraft to aircraft. Though the basics are similar, it takes our team of experts to design the specifics. We know the industry inside and out and can recommend everything aviation businesses need for their fueling systems, from tiny valves to large equipment needed for refueling, defueling, fuel dumping, and more.

Safety, of course, is another priority at Western Oil Services. We work to make sure your aviation fueling systems are always in proper working condition so as to avoid accidents and incidents, and make sure that anyone who will be handling the system knows the right way to operate it.

For more information on how we can serve you, specifically, and the aviation industry in general, contact the experts at Western Oil services at 604-514-4787 for information about installation, service and maintenance, and more. We’d be happy to meet you in person or virtually for a consultation to identify your needs and to help you take the first steps towards a new or replacement aviation fuel system for your business.
