Hummingbird Aviation Flight Planner
The Direct User Access Terminal (DUAT) Service is a computerized service provided by the FAA. It allows current pilots to directly access FAA weather data and flight plan systems. This service is ONLY for licensed pilots, student pilots and flight dispatchers. DUAT provides valid FAA weather briefings and official flight plans. There are two competing DUAT services, one by Data Transformation Corporation (DTC) and the other by Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC). In addition CSC DUATS offers text and Windows based interfaces to the service. Finally, CSC DUATS offers a Windows interface program which greatly improves the experience and utility of the service. Try all three and use the one that works best for you. We encourage you to become a registered DUAT user.
