FBO SECTOR SHOWS RESILIENCE
October 26, 2021
By the time the eagerly awaited NBAA-BACE 2021 was wrapped up, it was obvious that the business aviation sector was rebounding from the pandemic’s hammer. NBAA was the first major in-person bizav event for almost two years & it was clear people were champing-at-the bit to do business. X-1FBO had its biggest booth to-date, largest team in place & most event demos ever! "This show was not about quantity, but about quality. We really were able to take time to get into good conversations with serious prospects. It was a great show for us." -Monica Sarduy, VP of Sales & Marketing, X-1FBO Software.
NBAA BACE 2021 was a productive show.

June 27, 2020
Palmetto Bay, FL – GMSTEK, LLC (“GMSTEK”), the developer and marketer of the industry leading X-1FBO suite of software and hardware products for General Aviation, today announced the launch of new features for X-1PAY. For the first time, FBOs can accept touchless payments anywhere at the FBO and they can do it with lower cost X-1PAY Direct Debit Transactions.
FBO transactions always take longer than they should. The last thing pilots want to do at the end of a visit to an FBO is to stand in line waiting to pay as a CSR collects the information for an invoice. With X-1FBO and X-1PAY, invoices are instantaneous and accurate. With a pilot community that is getting younger the expectations around payment and the ease at which they can be performed continues to grow and the X-1FBO team is providing the solutions. And for FBOs, credit card processing costs continue to add up. In a COVID-19 era, efficient and touchless payment are very attractive to FBO customers and FBOs alike.
