JPTS stands for Jet Propellant Thermally Stable (high thermal stability, high altitude fuel), and was created specifically for the U2 spy plane.
Additional recommended knowledge
The United States Air Force currently spends approximately $ 10 million dollars annually on fuel support for the Lockheed U-2 aircraft. The U-2 utilizes a specially designed jet fuel known as JPTS since the aircraft's development in the 1950's. JPTS is a specialty fuel used only by the U-2 and is produced by two oil refineries in the United States. As such, it has limited worldwide availability and costs over three times the per-gallon price of the Air Force's primary jet fuel, JP-8.
