ICAO FLIGHT PLANS ARE COMING TO THE FAA
The FAA intends do away with the FAA domestic format for filing flight plans and going strictly to the ICAO format throughout the NAS (Jan 23rd 2017). By using DUATS several things will happen to assist you in this transition. All domestic stored flight plans will be automatically transitioned to ICAO for you. DUATS leads you through the completion of ICAO format. Error checking and in form help to assist you in completing a flight plan correctly and specific help is provided for each block that needs to be completed. Our goal in DUATS is to make the transition to ICAO as simple as possible – you will not need to refer to a user guide when filling out the format in DUATS.
