Pilots know all too well one of the big costs of flying is fuel. They also need to know where fuel is available and how to measure and maximize its use. As the cost of fuel continues to rise, everyone also wants to find the best prices. These five apps claim they can do some or all of these tasks. These are not endorsements of any app.
Your apps recommendations are always welcome, so please submit them here. I thank my Android users for their picks, but still need more! Finally, I’m still taking recommendations from app developers for an upcoming column. The complete list of apps I’ve highlighted since October 2012 is in AOPA’s online archive.
