Agree Eapis is a major PITA but once you have done it a few times it's really no big deal. You can always change your eta and/or port of entry that you reported in Eapis with a phone call to the port of entry you first declared. I have done that several times, no problem. I have always appreciated the ease of clearing Canadian Customs thru a call to CanPass before entry and another quick call at the port of entry, never any problems.

As an interesting side note, historically, most GA air traffic from Canada into Alaska cleared Customs at Northway, Alaska. Customs does not want to drive the 20 or 30 miles from the border to Northway anymore so they encourage clearing at Anchorage or Fairbanks and will even authorize AN ENROUTE FUEL STOP before clearing Customs if you need one!

I don't mind the Eapis, it's just annoys me that it doesn't reflect small plane reality. And back somewhat to the topic; fly- ins are definitely the best way to meet members! I wish I was retired, I'd try to make Paul's Texas fly- in.
