Expanded Flight Options 

The topic shows you how to use the expanded flight options on the List screen. 

We estimate that this will take 3 minutes to complete.

Expanded Flight Options

Users can expand a flight from the List screen to make quick changes to a flight and recompute without having to go into the full Plan screen.  Users can expand more than one flight at a time and collapse flights as needed.

For this exercise we will expand two flights at the same time.  

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Flight 0J09 checkbox.

Interaction 1 Click the Expand button.

Users can expand multiple plans at the same time but can only edit one at a time.  

Fields will populate with details from 3rd party integrations or input defaults, if available.

Once you have entered the updated information, clicking on the C will compute the flight plan.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the green arrow next to the Flight ETD input field.

In the first column, you can change:

        Destination

        Estimated Time of Departure

        Time of Arrival

        Aircraft Tail

        ATC ALC

The expanded box for ETD allows you to select if you want to depart at a specific time or if you want to work backwards and calculate the ETD based on the standard arrival for that flight.

The 2nd column is for route information:

        Route - if you have stored routes, these will appear in the dropdown

        Profile - The dropdown will include all cruise profiles for the aircraft selected

        MFL - Maximum Flight Level

Profile type list is available when select the green arrow beside Profile. This list allows you to select a profile type. Options available are:

       Specific Profile

       Optimum cost index

       Meet Schedule CI

       Optimum fixed Mach

       Meet schedule fixed

 

The 3rd column allows you to select your alternates. If you have preferred alternates set up in your configurations, they will populate as a dropdown or the user can manually enter an alternate.

The expanded green box allows you to select if you will be using an airport for an alternate, island hold or no alternate needed.

The next column is Weights which allows you to update the number of adults and children, cargo, payload and Operating Empty Weight.

 

The expanded green box allows the payload to be calculated as a specific number, preferred payload or maximum payload as needed.

The Fuel column allows users to make changes to the fuel for the flight plan.

 

The Tankerage field be expanded to select which type of tankering the flight plan needs.

The hold fields can be expanded to indicate if the user wants to:

        Use a quantity of hold fuel as a weight

        User a quantity of gold fuel as a time at a specific flight level  

        At Altn lets you set the hold fuel over the alternate if an alternate is used.

        Optional allows user to select and only add if it does not affect the takeoff weight or payload.
