INSTRUMENTS FLIGHT PLANNING
The IFR Enroute Supplement contains appropriate ZULU conversion factors in each aerodrome
listing. Since (Z) is already printed on the form itself do not repeat it. Leave the ACTUAL DEP
TIME block blank. This is filled in by ATC personnel on learning of your T/O time. Our
departure time is 0900 CST. The appropriate ZULU correction factor is +6 so our proposed (Z)
T/O time is 1500.
Figure 2-10 Proposed Departure Time
This block is used to denote your initial cruising altitude. When working with MSL altitudes
enter the altitude desired in hundreds of feet, i.e., for 6000 feet enter 60, for 17,000 feet enter
170. When working with flight levels, just drop the FL and enter the three-digit number; i.e., FL
330 becomes 330, FL 180 is 180.
