Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The DUAT (Direct User Access Terminal) service enables medically current FAA Certificated Pilots, Student Pilots with a student medical, Sport Pilots, Glider and Balloonists, Flight Instructors, Aviation Ground Instructors, Ultra Light Pilots, and Dispatchers to quickly and easily receive weather briefings and weather graphics, use the flight planner to plan their flight, and file flight plans directly from the app. The DUAT service provides information for the contiguous US, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
DTC DUAT Service is a FREE FAA Certified weather and flight planning service that has been providing the DUAT service to pilots on behalf of the FAA for over 20 years. The difference between DTC DUAT and all of the other iPhone applications out there is the fact that DTC DUAT is required by the FAA to keep a copy of all transactions that you perform with DTC DUAT for 15 days. If the FAA would require that information for any reason, we have it.

What's New in Version 1.10
Various bug fixes. Added Registration, Forgot Password and Lost Access code.
I couldn't get the Log In button to work on my iPhone5, yet the same app worked fine on my iPad. I read a review that stated to turn the phone to create the landscape view and press the Log In button. Wouldn't you know it, it worked! This is a quirk/bug that is easily
fixed with a software update. Get on it DTC!
Too difficult to sign on
Registration requires you to pick a password. OK. Then it provides you with two long strings of digits, and tells you to print them. Just how many if us can print from our iphone! Then in order to log on, you do not use your password, but rather these long strings of random digits.
Security is important, but this is not the way to achieve it.
No problem here
Logged right in and everything worked. UI could be a bit friendlier but all of the info is there. Happy with it.
