JETFUELX SIGNS 2,000th AIRCRAFT
Aviation Community’s Rapid Acceptance Is Unprecedented
JetFuelX, led by tech innovator and pilot Jason Talley, has announced that the 2,000th aircraft has signed up for their fuel management tool for turbine aircraft owners and corporate flight departments. Developed by pilots for operators, the program is free, fast, and can be used on any mobile device.
“I knew it was something that was long overdue for the industry, but even I was surprised by the immediate acceptance and interest. The industry as a whole is really taking notice.” said Talley, founder of the company. “I wanted to have all my fuel card prices update automatically, be able to search them for the best price, and have fuel ordered in less than 15 seconds — and apparently so do a lot of other operators. The feedback from pilots and operators has been a very rewarding experience.”
Casey Miller, President of Latitude 33 Aviation in Carlsbad, California, who operates of fleet of 25 aircraft, said, “JetFuelX has saved us significant time managing our growing fleet of aircraft. We’ve reduced the total time spent on fuel logistics to under 30 seconds per destination, enabling us to easily source and secure the best fuel price possible for our charter operations and owners. It’s nice to finally see modern technology applied to aviation.”
Citation 560 owner Steve Vollum also explained, “For the past 20 years of operating and managing turbine aircraft, my trip planning started with Dialing for Discounts. Checking fuel prices required web sites with passwords written on the back page of my notebook, phone calls to CSRs and anything else I could think of to get the best deal. NO MORE! JetfuelX completely automates this and saves significant time that I put to better use planning trips. I use it every time and would never go back to the old ways.”
To save usage time and hassles associated with fuel cards, JetFuelX operates with most of the major fuel vendors in the industry in order to provide a quickly searchable e-database of fuel prices. JetFuelX analyzes all the latest pricing data for all the operator’s cards and lets the operator know the cheapest vendor in seconds.
JetFuelX intends to keep their new service available free of charge. Talley plans to bring more efficiencies from the IT revolution to the aerospace industry, summarizing, “We will be constantly developing and adding new features and innovation, as well as strategic partnerships throughout the industry.”
A virtual tour of the program is available at the JetFuelX website at jetfuelx.com, which is where interested users can also sign up for an account at the same time.
