Garmin Adds More Functionality to FltLogic Service

 - January 29, 2019, 7:00 AM

Garmin International (Booth 601) has added a FBO fuel price comparison feature and filters for developing flight department reports to subscribers of its FltLogic scheduling program, the Kansas-based company announced at the opening of the 2019 NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference today. The new features are available immediately on FltLogic, which integrates with the free electronic flight planning and filing website.

The new contract fuel pricing feature will help operators who are subscribed to FuelerLinx find the cheapest fuel by comparing FBO prices at their departure and destination airports, Garmin said. 

The company also has increased the functionality of FltLogic’s reporting by adding filters that allow flight departments to pull together different reports on their pilots, aircraft and expenses, and export those reports in .csv format into databases. For instance, a flight department could run a yearly report on its individual pilots, detailing their total and average hours flown as well as number of legs or total distance.

Garmin acquired FltPlan in August 2018. At the time of the deal more than 6.3 million flight plans were created annually by FltPlan’s 165,000 registered users, making it one of the largest flight planning companies in the world.
