The FAA will not accept flight plans filed with Date
of Flight resulting in more than a day in advance.

(k) REG/ The registration markings of the
aircraft, if different from the aircraft identification in
Item 7. Note that the FAA uses this information in
monitoring of RVSM and ADS-B performance.

(l) EET/ Significant points or FIR boundary
designators and accumulated estimated elapsed times
to such points or FIR boundaries.
EXAMPLE-
EET/KZLA0745 KZAB0830

(m) SEL/ SELCAL code.

(n) TYP/ Insert the type of aircraft if ZZZZ
was entered in Item 9. If necessary, insert the number

(o) CODE/ Aircraft address (expressed in
the form of an alphanumerical code of six

ADS-B capability is filed in Item 10.

EXAMPLE-
"F00001" is the lowest aircraft address contained in the
specific block administered by ICAO.

(p) DLE/ En route delay or holding, insert
the significant point(s) on the route where a delay is
planned to occur, followed by the length of delay
using four figure time in hours and minutes (hhmm).

EXAMPLE-
