1       Introduction 

21-1 Enhancements 

21-1 Enhancements for N-FP 

We estimate that this will take 3 minutes to complete.

2       Detailed Explanation 

NFP-1772 – Multiple IIA/IIB Effects in a Single MEL 

 

Previously, a MEL/CDL Dictionary (FOMS 428) entry limited IIA/IIB effects to a single entry unless an operating count was specified. Customers are now able to enter multiple IIA/IIB effects, thus being able to replace two or more item 10A/10B codes with a single dictionary entry.

Note: If you need to revert to 20-7 after upgrading, an additional step needs to be performed prior to starting the revert. Any MEL or CDLs that had been amended to include multiple IIA/IIB effects must be restored to a single IIA/IIB effect. Skipping this step causes the revert to fail. This is due to compatibility issues between databases in the 20-7 (and earlier versions) and 21-1.

NFP-3218 – Increase Input Defaults ATC Remark to Three Lines 

 

Previously, an Input Default (FOMS 171) ATC Remark was limited to a single line of 65 characters. Customers are now able to enter up to 3 lines (195 characters).

NFP-3827 – IFPS Auto Assist Option to Lock-In MTTA Waypoint 

 

The IFPS Auto Assist routing assistance option now sends the CFMU waypoints that are 'must use' when they are book-ended by the MTTA command (i.e., MTTA WPT MTTA). This increases the likelihood for the service to return routes that more closely follow the intended flight path.

NFP-3881 – Allow Special Characters as Part of the Text Match in NOTAM Filters 

You can now use special characters when filtering NOTAMs based on text.
 

Note: When using the LIKE operator, the following special characters require a backslash to correctly save into the database:

        Parentheses ()

        Period .

        Addition Sign +

        Asterisk *

For example, if you want to filter a NOTAM based on the frequency 122.800, enter the text string as 122\.800.

NFP-4059 – IFPS Auto Assist Option to Avoid MUST NOT USE Waypoints 

 

To steer your flight plans away from areas you don't want them to traverse, use the IFPS Auto Assist option. It now sends the CFMU any waypoints you enter in the MUST NOT USE section of the route builder screen.
