new FAA requirement for International Flight Plan (ICAO) format - FAA has decided to delay implementation until the Fall of 2017

International Flight Plan Update
The FAA recently met with Nav Canada and vendors (Harris Corporation, CSRA and Leidos) to review testing results between all operating systems for implementation of the new FAA requirement for International Flight Plan (ICAO) format for all civil flights filed with Flight Service.
To ensure a safe and seamless transition with full interoperability, the FAA has decided to delay implementation until the Fall of 2017. The additional time will allow all service providers to address required changes identified in testing and integrate enhancements to the international format, while avoiding system changes during the busy summer flying season. The FAA will provide a 30-day advance notice to the public when a final date is selected later this year. Learn more about the FAA International Flight Plan format by visiting our website.
