With nearly all of America’s 110,000 gas stations offering 24/7 credit-card, self-service pumps — isn’t it odd that only about a third of our nation’s some 3,600 airports do the same? To make matters worse, many pilots only have time to fly evenings and on holidays, when many FBOs are likely to be closed.
Consider the benefits of a modern self-service fuel station:
Available 24/7; convenient; safe.
Self-service fuel generally sells for less than full-service.
Reduces fuel theft through sophisticated pump controllers.
Web-based tools allow owners to monitor fuel operations 24/7 from a hand-held device.
Allows private or public cards as well as proximity keys for authorization.
Significantly lowers personnel and fuel vehicle costs.
Why don’t all GA airports have self-service fuel stations? Arguments FBO managers have given in the past include costs, funding resource, limited use, and that fuel trucks are preferred.
Pre-engineered and pre-fabricated to lower engineering, site prep, and installation costs.
Modest-capacity systems sized for general aviation are highly affordable.
Strong cash flow makes private financing possible and allows quick amortization.
