Avfuel: Connecting Aviators and Businesses with Systems for Success

Avfuel is a leading independent global supplier of aviation fuel and services. Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Avfuel connects a diverse array of aviation customers with the systems and solutions needed to attract more business and to conduct operations efficiently and effectively. Airlines, freight and cargo companies, corporate flight departments, airports and municipalities, fixed-base operators (FBOs), crop dusters, helicopters, and the military represent just some of the customer types that benefit from Avfuel’s innovative fuel and service solutions.  

Avfuel’s global network includes a fueling network of more than 3,000 worldwide locations and more than 650 Avfuel Branded Dealers throughout North America and Europe. Aircraft owners and operators benefit from solutions including less-than-retail rates on jet fuel through Avfuel Contract Fuel, international flight support and trip-planning solutions through Avplan Trip Support, and AVTRIP loyalty rewards, while FBO and airport customers have access to reliable supply, advantageous training and operational systems, marketing support, credit and financing, tax assistance, and a variety of aviation insurance coverages through Avsurance Corporation.

Avfuel is focused exclusively on aviation. We continue to solicit and incorporate the insight of pilots, flight departments, and FBOs as we add and adapt our offerings. We’re not in the business of simply selling fuel and services – we’re in the business of connecting people, companies, and cultures.


Leadership Team


Craig R. Sincock

President & CEO

Craig R. Sincock acquired Avfuel Corporation in 1983. Under his leadership, the company has grown from a regional fuel supplier to its current position as a leading independent global supplier of aviation fuel and services. Mr. Sincock accomplished this growth through a strategic mix of 28 acquisitions (four of which were aviation divestitures from publicly traded energy companies), internal sales growth and marketing alliances. Today, Avfuel touches virtually every aspect of the aviation industry with its innovative lineup of programs and solutions and through various subsidiary corporations. 

Avfuel currently serves more than 5,500 aviation customers at more than 3,000 worldwide locations and supplies fuel to six major aviation consumer groups: fixed-base operators (FBOs), corporate flight departments, airlines, helicopter operators, cargo haulers and the military. Avfuel subsidiaries include Avtank, which designs, engineers, and manufactures fuel storage systems and refueling equipment; Avlease, which provides management and leasing of aviation refueling equipment; Avsurance, an aviation insurance agency capable of procuring a variety of coverages for pilots, airports, equipment manufacturers, distributors and related facilities; and Avplan, a full-service flight-planning and trip-support company.

Mr. Sincock continues to focus on further international expansion with the goal of realizing his vision to build a company that drives the connections of people, business and culture. 

The passion for aviation that led Mr. Sincock to purchase Avfuel is evident through his continued devotion to the company’s success as well as through his advocacy efforts. He has served on the boards of several prominent industry organizations, including the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) and the General Aviation Manufacturers Association’s (GAMA), among others.  Past positions include seats on the Pride Refining Inc Board of Directors (PRF: NYSE) and Duncan Aviation Board of Advisors.  He is a member of the World Presidents’ Organization (WPO), an international organization fostering educational development and networking opportunities for company leaders. He has also been an active participant in the National Air Transportation Association (NATA), the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) and more. Additionally, Mr. Sincock is a pilot with an ATP rating and frequently pilots the company’s Cessna Citation XLS+.
