Globalair.com announced today the anticipated addition of GPS functionality to its “FBO Fuel Prices” app. Now when users are flying they have the ability of selecting the GPS option that will show the users location in relationship to the airports they are near.
This new capability will enable a pilot in the air to locate the closest airport and/or the best fuel price in that area. Jeff Carrithers, President of GlobalAir.com explains. “This app is really a great tool for any pilot who is in charge of filling up the tanks. Globalair.com maintains one of the most up to date fuel pricing indexes on the internet and now with the GPS tracking you can locate any airport up to a 100 mile radius from your location and find the fuel price. Once the airport is selected they can see which FBO is offering the fuel price and can contact them through the apps email system or local Unicom or ARINC frequency.”
Other updates include: Fuel brand logo of the FBO, Time stamp of last update, compatibility to iOS7.
The app has additional information regarding the specific airport chosen via its Airport Resource mobile unit website. Including information such as METAR, NOTAMs, navaids, current Weather and Terminal Procedures.
The app can be purchased for a one-time fee of $3.99 at the App Store by searching “FBO Fuel Prices”.
