and file your plan all with the new DUATS iPad app. You can
build a route from your departure to destination using multiple
routine methods. This route will then overlay on top of sectionals charts, TACs, WACS or enroute charts. All these charts
are available for free from DUATS. From this map you can
also overlay METAR indicators for VFR, Marginal VFR or

flight. You can also get the latest weather and NOTAM information for selected airports. The latest Terminal Procedures

changes ATC make to your plan before departure.
