SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. — JetFuelX, led by pilot Jason Talley, reports that 2,000 aircraft have signed up for its fuel management tool for turbine aircraft owners and corporate flight departments.
Developed by pilots, the program is free and can be used on any mobile device.
“I knew it was something that was long overdue for the industry, but even I was surprised by the immediate acceptance and interest. The industry as a whole is really taking notice,” said Talley. “I wanted to have all my fuel card prices update automatically, be able to search them for the best price, and have fuel ordered in less than 15 seconds, and apparently so do a lot of other operators. The feedback from pilots and operators has been a very rewarding experience.”
To save time and hassles associated with fuel cards, JetFuelX operates with most of the major fuel vendors in the industry to provide a searchable e-database of fuel prices. JetFuelX analyzes all the latest pricing data for all the cards and lets the pilot know the cheapest vendor in seconds, Talley explains.
