FAA Flight Plan

Flight Plans request standard information including:

  • departure and arrival locations
  • expected time en route
  • substitute airports (if needed in case of emergency)
  • Instrument Flight Rules or Visual Flight Rules type of flight
  • data about the pilot
  • number of people on board the flight
  • aircraft information

In South Africa, pilots can complete the International Civil Aviation Organization flight plan:
