What’s the computer pilots use called ?

I’ve seen it, but can’t think of the name it’s the thing that the pilots use to program the aircraft so they know where to fly

    A FMS. That is a flight management system. It is data base driven. Made by Honeywell and many others like Garmin  and Collins.

    FLIGHT DATA COMPUTER (FDC) that is part of the Flight Managerment System. The FMS console is where the navigation data is keyed in and then the FDC calculates the courses.

    Flight Management System or FMS. 

    The FMS is the entire system which includes the Flight Management Computer (FMC), the Control Display Unit (CDU.. the panel that you actually see in the cockpit with the screen and keyboard that most people call the FMS) and the various sensors, inputs, and file servers that enable it to do its job.
