Globalair.com has released FBO Fuel Prices, its first iPhone application designed specifically for locating FBOs with the most competitive fuel prices.
Developed for both iPhone and iPad, “This application is appropriately named because it puts pertinent FBO location and fuel pricing information at pilots’ fingertips and provides easy access to real-time information. Even the most technologically challenged pilot can literally make routing decisions ‘on the fly’ and generate significant fuel cost savings on a trip to trip basis,” said Globalair.com’s President and CEO Jeff Carrithers.
FBO Fuel Prices is launched by filling in either an airport identifier or the name of a city and state in the browser. The application will then ask for specific items from drop down lists, including criteria such as a nautical mile search radius, type of fuel sought (Jet A or 100LL), and how the information is to be sorted. Once these queries are satisfied, the system generates a map and a list of the area airports reporting fuel. Clicking on an airport icon will either display a link to the airport or telephone and/or e-mail contact information for an FBO where real-time fuel availability and cost information can be obtained. Globalair.com has also added links to the specified airports in its Airport Resource Center which run through a web browser to allow pilots to access any additional airport information they might require.
