EDCT times


#1

Hi,

Great site - use it all the time.

Was wondering whether it would ever be possible to get actual assigned EDCT times prior to departure.

Thanks

What does EDCT mean? Expected Departure Clearance Time?
What I’m getting at is that this forum is used by many different people.

While an abbreviation may be used by you everyday, there are many who don’t know what it means. My recommendation is to spell out the abbreviation the first time you use it then use the abbreviation from that point on. As an example:

Of course, this doesn’t apply to common abbreviations like FAA, USA, BTW, etc.

In the event that a departure becomes controlled, the estimated departure time displayed on the site should be the controlled departure time.
