iFlightPlanner to update fuel prices daily in AOPA products

The switch from data provider 100LL.com to iFlightPlanner allows AOPA to display availability and fuel prices for mogas and UL94, the unleaded fuel alternative produced by Swift Fuels. Information about 100LL, Jet A, and Jet A with Prist will continue to be available.

The prices will be updated daily, rather than weekly, providing pilots with more up-to-date information for planning fuel stops. AOPA and iFlightPlanner will be working to add real-time, on-demand pricing information in the future.

“We know prices play a role in where pilots decide to stop for fuel,” said Eric Rush, AOPA director of product development. “With iFlightPlanner, we can provide the most up-to-date information possible for a wider variety of fuels.”

In April 2020, AOPA switched its legacy flight planning tool to iFlightPlanner for AOPA, a mobile-friendly online planning tool that depicts temporary flight restrictions, displays fuel prices, allows route rubber banding and airway waypoints, and enables flight service briefings. The flight planner is free to AOPA members. Members also have the option of upgrading to iFlightPlanner Core or Premium to send flight plans from the tool to electronic flight bags including ForeFlight, Garmin Pilot, FlyQ, FltPlan Go, Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro and Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck, and WingX.
