Airport and aircraft sales information provider Globalair.com has added GPS locating to its FBO Fuel Prices Apple iOS app. The new GPS functionality allows pilots to use the app in the air to view fuel prices for nearby airports and easily compare prices in a particular area. The FBO Fuel Prices app costs $3.99 (one-time fee) and is continually updated with fuel prices from the more than 3,000 FBOs in the Globalair.com Airport Resource database. Most fuel prices are updated frequently and none are more than 30 days old.
The app also allows users to contact the FBO via email (in the air if airborne communications are available) and it shows the FBO’s Unicom or Arinc frequencies as well.
The Airport Resource system also provides complete information about each airport, including current weather, notams and terminal procedures.
Globalair.com is showing a demo version of the new FBO Fuel Prices GPS service at the NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers conference in New Orleans (Booth No. 1120). The full app should be available on the Apple App Store in about a week.
