Liquid Controls Creates Aviation Business Line

LAKE BLUFF, IL – June 9, 2014 – Liquid Controls (LC) announces the creation of the Aviation Business Line. The Aviation Business Line is a team of Liquid Controls employees dedicated to providing into-plane fueling and airport bulk fuel management solutions. With their new, singular focus, the Aviation Business Line team will now have the freedom and resources to provide swift, well-informed service to their partners in the aviation industry.


The highest priority of the LC’s new Aviation Business Line will be FlightConnect, an aviation fueling system that simplifies into-plane fueling and automates data acquisition and data management. “FlightConnect can provide tremendous value for into-plane fueling providers,” said Frank Montalvo, Liquid Controls’ Aviation Business Line Leader, “It simplifies the fuelers job on the tarmac and drastically cuts the workload down in the office. It’s also cost-effective. There are no ‘per transaction’ fees, and no external devices are needed.”


Fuelers enter all FlightConnect functions directly into the LectroCount LCR 600 electronic register. “It truly couldn’t be any simpler,” says Joe Freeman, Facilities and Maintenance Manager of Million Air at Addison Airfield in Addison, Texas. “They (the fuelers) simply walk up to the truck, select the type of transaction, select the type of fuel, enter a tail number, and hit start,” Freeman added.


FlightConnect collects the details of each fueling and delivers them, wirelessly, to the back office, eliminating many of the errors caused by lost tickets and data entry mistakes. And without hand-written fueling records and manual data entry, workload is reduced on the tarmac and in the office.
