General aviation pilots can now pay for fueling and services directly from their phones with a new app from U.S. Bank Multi Service Aviation.
MSA Pay is designed for the ordering, payment and back office needs of pilots.With MSA Pay, pilots can notify an FBO of their arrival details, special needs and service requests prior to landing. The FBO performs the requested services, notifies the pilot when the plane is ready and sends the pilot an invoice to review and approve.
Once approved, the app automatically emails a copy of the invoice to the pilot for final payment processing.
The MSA Pay app provides both an automated reservation confirmation and the option for FBOs to add a personalized note for pilots before they arrive. The app can also be used for flight planning and scheduling.
The app is now available through the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It will be available through Google Play in early 2016.
