I'm having trouble getting the correct departure time filed for my IFR flight plan from KLOT-KMWC. I've entered the correct time on the planner page three times, trying both Central Time and Zulu, and the plan keeps getting adjusted for "10 minutes in advance". Bug?

Thanks for your post! The FAA requires that flight plans be filed at least 10 minutes in advance of the planned departure date and time. When our software sees an attempt to file with less lead time than that (say 5 minutes), it automatically adjusts the departure date to 10 minutes from now so that the flight plan will be accepted by the FAA. Otherwise, the flight plan will be rejected.

We have completed a quick code review on our end to make sure there are no issues with the automatic check and all appears to be in order. Please let us know if this issue persists for you!
