function. To facilitate communication flow, specify that you are picking up clearance
when making the call to ground.

302. RECEIVING YOUR CLEARANCE
When you initially call for your flight clearance, clearance delivery forwards your flight plan
information to the appropriate ATC facility for approval. Normally allow at least 30 minutes
after filing before requesting clearance. This will afford the required processing time.
