Before being launched into the market, Hewitt ensures the quality and safety of the fueling nozzle through extensive field testing sessions. We are glad to share with you that it has gained the approval of airport managers for being a high-quality aviation grade nozzle exceptionally equipped to be installed on fuel dispensers at small airports.

There are a lot of rave reviews about the Osprey Automatic Shutoff Nozzle. Here are some of its highlighted features:

• Automatic shut-off

• Lightweight

• Easy to service 100 mesh stainless steel fuel filter assemblies

• Easy to identify red fuel grip guard for aviation gas

• Dust cap over spout, grounding strip, one-piece contoured steel lever, and aluminum body

Bob Martin, Airport Manager for the Guntersville, Alabama Municipal Airport said, “I like what they have done with this nozzle. And in the next two or three years, it’s going to get a tremendous amount of use.” Indeed, the Osprey Automatic Shutoff Nozzle shows potential in making promising changes in making operations smoother and more efficient. And now we wait for its release in the market. Through this new fueling nozzle, Husky’s Hewitt once again proves the aviation industry why it is A Breed Apart.
