Within ExxonMobil Aviation, we have demonstrated our commitment to technology leadership for more than a century. Our history of innovation dates back to 1903 when the Wright Brothers used Mobil-branded lubricants and Jersey Standard fuel for their historic flight. Our products have been selected for many aviation breakthroughs, including the first transatlantic flight in 1958 and the first Space Shuttle flight.
Our reputation for introducing breakthrough products is renowned. At the heart of our technology leadership is ongoing collaboration with our business partners, industry groups and our customers. We focus on product quality and providing solutions to address customers’ needs - developing tomorrow's innovative products, today.
