For DCM (Dot Com) Call Sign Users
DCM Call Sign service enhancement
Lost communications/inflight notification.
FltPlan.com now allows our DCM call sign users the ability to place their aircraft air-phone number on file with FltPlan.com. If the need arises, such as lost communications with ATC, FltPlan.com will call your aircraft to give you the new center frequency or other necessary instructions. To register your aircraft's phone number, please call our special services line at 1-731-855-8000 (Monday - Friday, 9am to 5pm Eastern Time).
For Satcom Direct users, FltPlan.com has the ability to text message you while you are in flight to send any pertinent information.
DCM call sign now trackable
For those operators that need the ability for their support staff to track their aircraft movements, FltPlan.com now has the ability to assign you a trackable call sign. DCM operators can still utilitize their untrackable call sign if desired.
Receive planned ATC routes and proposed email notices
DCM callsign users can now receive notice that their flight plan is in the ATC system, as well as receiving their Planned ATC Route.
New default setting for DCM call sign users
DCM call sign users can now choose whether the NavLog defaults to your tail number, a blocked call sign or a trackable call sign. You can find our Default Settings link on the left side of the Main Menu page (near the bottom).
For more information on use of your DCM Call Sign, please call 1-731-855-8000 9-5 (Eastern) M-F.

New Enhancement: Fuel/Tech stops made easy
FltPlan.com is pleased to announce our new Fuel Stop program.
* Our fuel stop program is integrated with your specific aircraft performance and uses either current winds aloft or historical winds for the day of your trip. Base your stop on planned flight time, rather than distance alone.
* The background maps for our fuel stop program can be easily changed to Sectionals, High/Low altitude charts, terrain, or street maps.
* You can select airport stops based on your criteria including distance, flight time, runway length, Instrument approach and fuel requirements.
* You can toggle On/Off Weather and TFR information.
* A direct link to full airport and FBO information is available from the interactive map.
* There is a listing of Airports and FBOs below the map, including Instrument Approach Procedures, Weather and Fuel Prices.
* You are able to choose your airport and then locate that specific airport on your route map.

Our new Fuel Stop program works great on desktops, laptops, iPads and Androids.
