Future Flight Services Program (FFSP)

The FAA’s Future Flight Services Program (FFSP) system promotes safety by facilitating the filing of flight plans, providing weather briefings, and receiving safety notifications and alerts relevant to the flight plans filed by the General Aviation (GA) pilot. 

The FAA developed this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) in accordance with Section 208 of the E-Government Act of 2002 because FFSP collects and processes Personally Identifiable information (PII) such as the pilot’s name, address, email address, phone number, flight plan information, aircraft identifier, username/login name, password, home airport location, emergency contact information, pilot certification type (student, commercial, etc.), call detail records including date, time, and caller ID, and voice recordings via NICE voice recording system.  PII may also be included from incoming preflight calls, outgoing emergency services calls, connecting pilots or other external users and specialists.  

DOT is committed to ensuring that information is available in appropriate alternative formats to meet the requirements of persons who have a disability. If you require an alternative version of files provided on this page, please contact
