    Filed an IFR flight plan with ForeFlight the other day and was surprised to see it come back saying it was filed via "CSC DUATS" using the ForeFlight DUATS account. I thought ForeFlight was filing via Lockheed now unless you log in with a DUATS account (and I'm not logged in with a DUATS account).

    What gives?

    If it was logged as filed (shrug) Too many other things to worry about.
    I've used CSC for years.

    For domestic flightplans, if LM fails to respond and times out, ForeFlight reroutes the flightplan to DUATS using its account.

    I suspect this is likely what happened as it took an awfully long time for the plan to file.

    Only reason I really cared is because I like getting the expected route updates, although I was able to see the route on FlightAware before calling up clearance delivery and so already knew what the reroute was.
