iFuel Calculates Fuel Burn, Prices, Ramp Fees
The developer of the popular flight log app iLOG has launched its newest product - iFUEL. iFUEL is a simple to use app allowing pilots to determine when to tanker fuel using an iPhone or iPad.
The app, developed by Cockpit Apps and available through iTunes, helps pilots take the guesswork out of tankering decisions by taking into account fuel prices at each destination, burn rate for the specific aircraft, and ramp fees. It even 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, down to the penny. Operators can expect to save several thousand dollars a year by using the app depending on the flight profile, a savings they can record and communicate to the aircraft owner.
Robert Creek, career pilot and creator of iFUEL, developed the app to take the guesswork out of his own tankering decisions while flying for an operator in Chicago, IL. He commented, "Quite simply, iFUEL saves me time and it saves my boss money. Plus, it's easy and it works well."
