Private and business aviation pilots can now pay for fueling and services directly from their phones with a new app from U.S. Bank Multi Service Aviation.
MSA Pay, which went live this week, is the first mobile payment app in the general aviation space, designed specifically for the ordering, payment and back office needs of pilots.
With MSA Pay, pilots can notify a Fixed Base Operator (FBO) of their arrival details, special needs and service requests prior to landing. The FBO performs the requested services, notifies the pilot when the plane is ready and sends the pilot an invoice to review and approve. Once approved, the app automatically emails a copy of the invoice to the pilot and to the pilot’s back office for final payment processing.
The MSA Pay app provides both an automated reservation confirmation and the option for FBOs to add a personalized note for pilots before they arrive. The app can also be used for comprehensive flight planning and scheduling.
Pilots and their support teams can use MSA Pay to select destination FBOs; make, confirm, modify and cancel reservations; create pilot profiles; and review, approve, reject and pay invoices. U.S. Bank will continue to enhance MSA Pay over the next six to 12 months.
