VFR flight Changed to IFR after takeoff

Recommended Posts

VFR Flight plan KPDT to KALW at 5500 ft

No Flight Following

Took off and upon reaching the tower radius that state was changed to EnRouteIFR according to the log. I was instructed to contact Approach and upon contact was told I was off course and was given course corrections. I had to cancel IFR to get Approach to stop telling me to change course.

Here is the portion of the log file showing what happened.

Thanks for the report.

It looks like you were not on a VFR Flight Following plan, so sounds like a bug.  You should have been given something like, "....have a nice flight, frequency change approved".

I'll look into it.

Dave
