FBOs, submit your fuel prices in one place, and broadcast them to dozens of fuel programs and websites with acufuel.com.
AC-U-KWIK, business aviation’s leading flight planning resource, announced today its new “single point of entry” feature of acufuel.com. Acufuel.com empowers airport FBO managers, who currently upload fuel prices to dozens of fuel programs and websites, to save countless minutes or even hours by organizing this information in one central spot.
Delta Air Lines President Ed Bastian will be the featured guest speaker at the regular bi–monthly meeting of the Atlanta Aero Club scheduled for February 16.
Ever since the Lone Ranger first loaded his trusty six-shooter with silver bullets, I’ve been intrigued with the idea of formulating a single straightforward solution for pricing fuel at FBO operations I’ve managed over the years.
This search for the silver bullet is a subject we discuss at our FBO Success Seminars, and FBO managers in attendance often voice their concerns about how to effectively price fuel. On one hand, they’re concerned about the bottom line. On the other hand, they don’t want to price themselves out of the market and lose valuable customers in the process.
Indeed, it’s a two-edge sword. The trick is to maximize both cutting edges. Let me explain.
Flight Display Systems announced it has introduced and successfully installed an Android software application for use with its Select Cabin Management System (Select CMS). Now VIP aircraft passengers can control all cabin functions from the familiar setting of their mobile phones or tablet computers. The software is now available for all Flight Display Systems Select CMS customers.
The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) announced a call for nominations to acknowledge the individuals, offices and organizations demonstrating excellence in their fields and the highest level of customer service to the general aviation community.
AC-U-KWIK has tapped FBO operations and marketing veterans John Enticknap and Ron Jackson to write a weekly blog column specifically aimed at the FBO community.
On the blog, called FBO Connection, Enticknap and Jackson will provide insight into winning strategies to help FBO owners, operators and managers run a more successful operation. The column can be found in the monthly release of the AC-U-KWIK Alert e-newsletter, and starting in February, it will appear on the home page of acukwik.com.
We would like to welcome you to AC-U-KWIK’s FBO Connection, a source for discussion, ideas and general conversation on the FBO business. Here you’ll find weekly contributions from seasoned FBO professionals, sprinkled with bits of wisdom and peppered occasionally with some hot topics. We like to call it “Sage Advice for the FBO Community.”
