The app, available through iTunes, takes into account fuel prices at each destination, burn rate for the specific aircraft and ramp fees. It also takes into consideration the possibility of waiving a ramp fee if a certain amount of fuel is purchased. Other calculation factors include taxi fuel burn and reserve fuel requirements.
After the parameters are entered, pilots can definitively determine actual fuel costs and how much money can be saved by tankering. Operators can expect to save several thousand dollars a year by using the app, the company says.
The iFuel app costs $39.99.
