iFlightPlanner to update fuel prices daily in AOPA products

Get more accurate fuel prices—100LL, Jet A, mogas, and UL94—in the AOPA Airports and Destinations Directory and iFlightPlanner for AOPA with daily updates that will now be provided by iFlightPlanner.

iFlightPlanner will be providing daily updates of fuel prices in the AOPA Airports and Destinations Directory, AOPA app, and iFlightPlanner for AOPA.

The switch from data provider 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.
