Filed time alert error?


#1

It seems, for the past month or so, that the alerts we receive, showing our filed departure time, are in error. We typically file through fltplan.com, and thought they were ‘adjusting’ the filed times, but they assure us they are not. When we/they checked the EDCT time today, it showed the same as the time we filed. The alert we received from flightaware showed our filed time as 13 minutes later than what we actually filed.

Any ideas?

We’re displaying/sending the departure times estimated by ETMS (more info). They’re usually about 10 minutes later than the filed time at major airports.
