FltPlan Makes Filing and Flying a TEC Route Easy

Within the national airspace system, it is possible for a pilot to fly IFR from one point to another without leaving approach control airspace. This is referred to as "Tower Enroute Control" which allows flight beneath the ATC Center enroute structure. The TEC concept has been expanded (where practical) by reallocating airspace vertically/geographically to allow flight planning between city pairs while remaining within approach control airspace. Pilots are encouraged to use the TEC routes and restrictions when filing flight plans within Southern California. Other airways, which appear to be more direct between two points, may take the aircraft out of approach control airspace resulting in additional delays or other complications.


FltPlan allows you to select TEC routes directly from the flight plan entry page with the click of a mouse. You can also view FAA TEC routes from the website from Main Menu > Tools > Documents. From the FltPlan Go apps, download TEC Routes from Downloads > Documents > TEC Routes Nothern/Southern California.

With FltPlan, not only is the flight plan filed with the ATC TEC Route ID, we also provide a complete Navigation Log with routing, accurate ETE and fuel burn.
