1       Introduction 

Flight Progress Functions 

This simulation will provide a step-by-step tutorial of the Progress Functions, along with the available Integrations 

We estimate that this will take 3 minutes to complete.

2       Detailed Explanation 

N-Flight Planning Progress Functions

This module will review the Progress functions available in N-Flight Planning.

 

The Progress functions allow a user to track the flight, monitor flight time, fuel, flight level, and winds.  These values can be manipulated manually, based on position reports, or automatically via integration.

We will begin with a flight that has already been computed and filed.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Progress menu item.

Interaction 1

The system will automatically shade waypoints expected prior to the current time.

To access the manual update function, click on the desired waypoint in the list.

Interaction 1 Click the VXV+K7+V list item.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Time overhead input field.

The pop-up will allow manual entry of Time, Fuel, Flight Level, and Wind Component for the selected waypoint.

Interaction 1 Enter 011530 into the Time overhead field.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the OK button.

Interaction 1

By adding a 10 minute delay to the actual time for waypoint VXV, the system has also added an expected 10 minute delay to the "Actual" times for the subsequent waypoints.

To accommodate off-route position reports, users can enter ad hoc waypoints via the "Add" button.

Interaction 1 Click the Add button.

Interaction 1

With the off-route pop-up, you can enter any waypoint within the system database, and then a Time, Fuel , Flight Level, and Wind Component for that waypoint.

Interaction 1 Click the Cancel button.
