Can I change my Flight Plan in the air?

Situation: After takeoff of an uncontrolled field, you´re flying VFR (Visual Flight Rules).

Then you wish to fly IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) for landing in another aerodrome.

Could I do it? How is done? What is it? Would you give any source to me?

Thanks.

    Yes you can, in the USA you would call Flight Service on the RCO frequency provided on the sectional and file with them. It is a good way to keep them updated and informed and this happens all the time. The source would be the sectional or your local FSS. As for what it is, it would be an IFR flight plan (not really sure of that question).

    Source(s): My roommate works for Lockheed Martin FSS.
