Aviation turbine fuels are used for powering jet and turbo-prop engined aircraft and are not to be confused with Avgas. Outside former communist areas, there are currently two main grades of turbine fuel in use in civil commercial aviation : Jet A-1 and Jet A, both are kerosene type fuels. There is another grade of jet fuel, Jet B which is a wide cut kerosene (a blend of gasoline and kerosene) but it is rarely used except in very cold climates. The name evolved from Aviation fuel, and as sold on the "Colonial Pipeline" and of many blends, number 54. Since it is the first kerosene, it is marked A1 - Aviation fuel 1. It is only for jet engines - Jet Propellant (JP) since it is kerosene, and not gasoline. This needs to be added chemicals for special properties. Bear in mind that up at 40 000 feet, it is very cold - typically -42 degrees C, so planes has to have tiny filters that removes ice formed from condensate, or if not equipped with these, need additives to avoid ice to form. 

The military use special variants of A1 that needs to be blended for altitude, and the trade-off between raw power and distance that is needed. You can also add chemical to remove the "cloud" or streak that a high-flying jet forms. Remember that it is just as cold over Sahara in the summer at the right altitude as it is in the coldest winter night in Alaska, so the temperature - "Freezing point" is just an indicator to measure residue of fats. Most helicopters, also civilians and turboprop planes also use military grade A1. Exxon is the largest supplier of aviation fuel, and their site contains the complete description of the various blends of A1 - including "Jp54" as Aviation fuel 1, Colonial Grade 54 .

CIVIL JET FUELS

::JET A-1

Jet A-1 is a kerosene grade of fuel suitable for most turbine engines aircraft. It is produced to a stringent internationally agreed standard, has a flash point above 38C (100F) and a freeze point maximum of -47C. It is widely available outside the U.S.A. Jet A-1 meets the requirements of British specification DEF STAN 91-91 (Jet A-1), (formerly DERD 2494 (AVTUR)), ASTM specification D1655 (Jet A-1) and IATA Guidance Material (Kerosine Type), NATO Code F-35.

::JET A
Jet A is a similar kerosene type of fuel, produced to an ASTM specification and normally only available in the U.S.A. It has the same flash point as Jet A-1 but a higher freeze point maximum (-40C). It is supplied against the ASTM D1655 (Jet A) specification.

::JET B
Jet B is a distillate covering the naphtha and kerosene fractions. It can be used as an alternative to Jet A-1 but because it is more difficult to handle (higher flammability), there is only significant demand in very cold climates where its better cold weather performance is important. In Canada it is supplied against the Canadian Specification CAN/CGSB 3.23

MILITARY

:JP-4
JP-4 is the military equivalent of Jet B with the addition of corrosion inhibitor and anti-icing additives; it meets the requirements of the U.S. Military Specification MIL-DTL-5624U Grade JP-4. (As of Jan 5, 2004, JP-4 and 5 meet the same US Military Specification). JP-4 also meets the requirements of the British Specification DEF STAN 91-88 AVTAG/FSII (formerly DERD 2454),where FSII stands for Fuel Systems Icing Inhibitor. NATO Code F-40.

::JP-5
JP-5 is a high flash point kerosene meeting the requirements of the U.S. Military Specification MIL-DTL-5624U Grade JP-5 (as of Jan 5, 2004, JP-4 and 5 meet the same US Military Specification). JP-5 also meets the requirements of the British Specification DEF STAN 91-86 AVCAT/FSII (formerly DERD 2452). NATO Code F-44.

::JP-8
JP-8 is the military equivalent of Jet A-1 with the addition of corrosion inhibitor and anti-icing additives; it meets the requirements of the U.S. Military Specification MIL-DTL-83133E. JP-8 also meets the requirements of the British Specification DEF STAN 91-87 AVTUR/FSII (formerly DERD 2453). NATO Code F-34.
