Aviation fuel supplier Harvest Energy signs new customer

12th May 2020

Harvest Energy Aviation, a member of the Prax Group of companies, has signed a five year fuel supply agreement with Sherburn Aero Club, one of the largest flying clubs in the country, located near Leeds in the UK. With Harvest Energy branding displayed at the airfield, the fuel supply contract – effective immediately – sees Harvest Energy Aviation supply Jet A1 and Avgas 100LL over a five year term. The terms of the contract also mean that Harvest Energy Aviation is funding a new “pay at the pumps” software system.


This new partnership represents the firm commitment and support Harvest Energy Aviation provides to the General Aviation community in the UK and Ireland. The agreement also enables Sherburn Aero Club to employ effective budget management practices, as Harvest Energy Aviation’s fuel prices are always competitive, and timely supply and support is guaranteed.


Stephen Rhodes, Sales Director at the Prax Group, said: “We are pleased and excited to have signed this fuel supply agreement with Sherburn Aero Club. As a dynamic and forward-thinking organisation, we consistently look for ways to keep our business innovative and to continue to meet the needs of our customers, whoever and wherever they may be. This agreement demonstrates our on-going commitment to our customers at Sherburn, and I am sure it will be extremely beneficial for all concerned.”

Business Manager at Sherburn Aero Club, Dale Petty, revealed: “We are delighted to be in partnership with Harvest Energy Aviation. Our relationship over the past few years has been so successful and trouble-free, that this joint commitment was a natural step forward. Visiting pilots who take fuel will get a free landing, so everyone is a winner.”
