About US

Green Flight International, LLC was formed for the purpose of developing, manufacturing and promoting advanced renewable forms of energy. The primary focus has been developing and commercializing biofuel technologies and marketing the economic and environmental benefits of liquid “Green Fuels” derived from renewable resources. GFI was founded in 2006 by Douglas Rodante.


Corporate History

Green Flight International is one of the world’s leading promoters of biofuels. GFI has literally pioneered the use of renewable fuels in aviation. The development of a GFI test program and certification by the Federal Aviation Administration for the use of 100% Green Fuel in a jet engine, led to the World’s first jet flight using renewable fuel. Mr. Rodante and his Green Flight Team conducted additional tests resulting in the first United States Transcontinental jet flight powered entirely by green fuel.

Green Flight International CEO, Douglas Rodante, piloted both record setting flights which stimulated a flurry of international media coverage within the aviation and energy industries. After creating a point of reference to the future possibilities of renewable fuels in aviation, GFI began a feasibility study to determine the current technological and political challenges in the commercialization process of advanced renewable based fuels. Subsequently, negotiations and collaborations began with the most technologically advanced corporations and universities in the country in order to expedite this goal.

The Department of Defense and The Department of Energy see this technology as critical to bringing the United States to energy independence and reducing our dependence on foreign petroleum imports. Due to the enormity and financial potential of this petroleum drop in replacement, major industries are involved in the research and development required for commercialization.
