PDX In Pictures
In this series of photos, Atlantic Aviation ramp personnel do their nightly prep work of the fuel trucks that will pump thousands of gallons of aircraft fuel throughout the course of the day. Pictured are Vishal Mohan (center photo) and Miguel Rojales (bottom photo). In addition to gassing up the trucks and filling them with jet fuel, Vishal and Miguel also sample the quality of the fuel to ensure no contaminants or water are present, which could pose a hazard to aircraft. Atlantic Aviation is the sole “fixed base operator” at PDX, providing services to private, corporate, charter and military aircraft.
About PDX In Pictures: For this periodic segment, we've asked Airport Duty Manager Brian Burk to share photos he captures while on the job with PDX Airport Operations. Brian has worked for the Port of Portland since 2007, but his first PDX job was as a high schooler in 1994. He's a native Portlander and a pilot who loves photography, flying and taking people behind the scenes of his favorite place: PDX.
