Global aeronautical charts and online mapping provider SkyVector has added sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) locations to its online flight planning and mapping service. The new functionality, released this week at NBAA’s Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference in San Diego, is integrated into the company’s popular FBO directory feature.
Similar to its existing weather and data overlays, it allows users to not only determine locations along their intended route that offer SAF, but see prices for it as well through the new overlay on the flight planning map.
According to the Seattle-based company which was founded in 2006, it will enable flight departments to more easily integrate SAF usage into their flight plans.
“We are excited to bring this much-requested layer to our maps,” said Jennifer Merrill, partner relations manager at SkyVector. While there are currently fewer than 20 locations in the U.S. to offer regular supplies of SAF, “we anticipate adding more and more locations to the map quickly,” she added.
