Never thought of that, but I should have. I was in FOK, I had filed three times over the phone after I was told by CD that my flight plan was in the system (even after having the briefer tell me that it should be). After the fourth time, I was p-o'ed and the controller wasn't too happy that he had to punch one in for me.

Peter, you can catch up with Don at his blog http://gettheflick.blogspot.com/
He's not writing the same type of material, but he approaches other aspects of aviation and ATC that he was unable to discuss while employed by the FAA. 

Very cool.   Thanks for the link.

Ever since the outsourcing of flight service and the several flight plans "lost" I never use flight service for filing.  I always use DUATS and have never "lost" a flight plan since its a direct way of filing.

Well, I had no choice. I always use DUATS when I have an internet connection. The FOK had some fancy wx briefing station, but you had to subscribe to the "supplier" (I think is was WSI wx or something like that) to be able to file flight plans. They had no internet. I didn't trust the program, having never used it before, so that flight planning session was done all over the phone. Kind of made me mad that I had to call them so many times and it still didn't work!

Fly for Angel Flight and you will encounter times when you have no choice.   Volunteer pilots who fly organ transplant patients on a moment's notice often have to file/receive a briefing from flight service while driving to the airport.

Thats true... I guess im spoiled at my school we have computers right next to the ramp for our planes and have to use them so filing is just done there but other times yes calling is the only option, it just never works for me.

I can say I learned something today. That was some very good information.
