New! Depart More Quickly at More than 60 U.S. Airports with our FAA Data Comm Service

Our new U.S. FAA Data Comm service automates Clearance Delivery. Routing and departure clearance can be automatically loaded into the flight deck. Controller Pilot Data Link Communication-Departure Clearance (CPDLC-DCL) reduces your workload, mitigates delivery/read back errors, and allows you to depart more quickly.

For FltPlan users who subscribe to the Data Comm service, we offer Pre-Departure Clearance (PDC) service at no additional charge. This extends coverage to busy airports not covered by the Data Comm service. PDC delivers your clearance via text or email to your cell phone or tablet.

FAA Data Comm service also enables the ability to exchange messages with U.S. domestic Air Route Traffic Control Centers (ARTCC), including transfer of communications, altimeter settings, altitudes and more! This service is expected to become widely available soon.

  • Garmin G3000 or G5000
