Flight Plan 2012 (FP2012) is an initiative of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to update the content requirements of the internationally-utilized flight plan, with a worldwide implementation date of November 15, 2012.
These updates will affect the alpha numeric string codes; in particular Equipment Type codes and remark suffixes used for filing flight plans. These changes are designed to address current and future status of aviation and air traffic management technology.
As of September 15th, NAV CANADA sites across Canada will be able to accommodate both current and new flight plan formats. This is a transitional step towards full implementation of FP2012 on November 15th when only the new flight plan format will be accepted.
For an overview of Flight Plan 2012 changes and additional resources, you can visit the Nav Canada OnBoard web site at http://onboard-abord.ca/flight-plan-2012/
