Bring additional cards just in case.
+1000 on this one. Stopped with a work plane after dropping the owners off in Key West - thought I'd be nice and top off with some cheap 100LL. Middle of summer, 1000 degrees, and get to play stump the chump with the cc reader. I finally just give in and use my personal cc and it works. Decide to go 'in' to cool off and file for my next leg. 'In' is a couple of stools in the corner of a maintenance hangar; in the shade, but just slightly cooler than the ramp. After sweating all over my iPad, I'm filed. I crawl my sweat-soaked body onto the plane's nice leather. Oh Airglades...never again...
