About

The initial spark for the idea came to Joseph Oldham while nurturing relationships between businesses and government to get zero-emission buses into public transit fleets.  A pilot for over 40 years, Oldham approached Richard Duncan, manager of Fresno Chandler Executive Airport, and together they began brainstorming how a network of chargers located up and down the San Joaquin Valley could support the operation of a small fleet of Pipistrel Alpha Electro aircraft for flight training operations. More conversations with other interested parties, long nights writing grant proposals, presentations to various city boards and government groups, and the Sustainable Aviation Project was born!
