X-1FBO unveils X-1 Landing for automated payments
Say goodbye to posting a person with binoculars to read tail numbers, X-1 Landing provides a fully automated solution for tracking all incoming and outgoing aircraft traffic.

X-1FBO has launched its purpose-built X-1 Landing System (X-1 Landing), an airport-focused solution that integrates automated aircraft tracking, smart invoicing and payment processing. The inaugural deployment will take place at Morristown airport in New Jersey.

Say goodbye to posting a person with binoculars to read tail numbers, X-1 Landing provides a fully automated solution for tracking all incoming and outgoing aircraft traffic. Based on aircraft characteristics such as size, weight, category or customer-negotiated rates, X-1 Landings' smart invoicing automatically calculates the correct fees and sends the invoices to the customer for payment, eliminating data entry all together. Customers can choose to settle invoices securely via email, or log into their airport-provided customer portal where they can view and pay single or multiple landing fees at a time. For repeat customers, a statement can be sent and a payment method on file can be applied, making the airport's billing and collections hands-free.

Morristown airport in New Jersey, operated by DM Airport, is a general aviation reliever airport that places a strong emphasis on community engagement. During each step of development, X-1 Landing was tested there to ensure that every aspect of the customer experience is both seamless and user-friendly, and that nothing was missed.

George Reyes, director of business development and co-founder of X-1, worked closely with the airport team to help define the product. He says: "X-1's mission is clear: Leverage smart technology to turn challenges into conveniences for our users. Working alongside the Morristown team has been an insightful journey and it's gratifying, and we're proud, to be part of their drive to innovate. X-1 products are designed with one goal in mind: Enable our users to work smarter, not harder, through X-1 smart technology. The team at Morristown has been great to work with, and we're happy to play a small part in their continued successes."

X-1FBO CTO Humberto Zuluaga adds: "We are committed to driving transformative change in general aviation, addressing a need that has long been overdue. We're excited to watch the impact of X-1 Landing unfold."
