GlobalAir.com’s new fuel route planner, in its final beta version, was displayed at AirVenture this year. President/CEO Jeffrey Carrithers anticipates that the finished screens, airport reports and icons should be finished by November 2008. The service is intended for the cross-country piston pilot, and he estimates that the subscription would run between $10-15 monthly.
Where GlobalAir differs is that the fuel prices are reported directly from the FBOs, not pilot reports. The fuel prices are updated every 30 days, and if an FBO doesn’t update, it’s removed from the system automatically—no false hope from outdated fuel prices.
