FAA Ask for ICAO Flight Plan for all International Border Crossings

It has recently been announced that the FAA have issued new requirements for International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO) flight plans for all border crossings, even for flights within the U.S. airspace, VFR or IFR. Most GA operators will be able to operate within the US borders, but the FAA have still said that they would still prefer an ICAO flight plan to be issued.

The ICAO flight plan form, updated in November and implemented in March of this year in the Aeronautical Information Publication, is now required for any flight that crosses any International border or flies above 29,000 feet, operating with RSVM.  The changes were published in the Aeronautical Information Manual concurrently.
