FOMS Menu 120 (City-Pair Enroute Area Program)

This program allows the user to control the data file that contains the list of enroute areas filtered to any city-pair for that enroute weather will be displayed for in the Pilot Weather Brief program.

The available modes are:

  • Add

  • Edit

  • Delete

  • Video

  • Screen

  • Hardcopy

  • Quit

Add Mode




Enter the ICAO or IATA code for the origin of the city-pair that you need to create an enroute areas list for. The alternative code and the airport name is displayed.


Enter the ICAO or IATA code for the destination of the city-pair. The alternative code and airport name is displayed.

Route Number

Enter the city-pair route number.


This is a display-only field that will display the date of the last change to the   record.


Enter your initials to indicate the source of the information.

Enroute Area Codes

Enter the enroute area codes, which are the four letter FIR/UIR regions identifiers (e.g., KZHU for Houston FIR, PZAK for Anchorage FIR). To complete your entries, you can either press <Enter> on a blank field, or use <Ctrl>-E.

Edit Mode

In the Edit mode, you can add, delete, or modify any of the enroute area on the collect list for a given city-pair.

If there are less than twenty-four entries on the list, you may add to the list. To add an area, position the cursor on the field where you want to add the new entry, and press <Ctrl>-I. This will create a blank field at the cursor position, shifting the entries to the right of the cursor, which is one field further to the right.

To delete an area from the list, position the cursor on it, and press either <Ctrl>-D or <Ctrl>-X. <Ctrl>-D deletes the entry and closes the list, while <Ctrl>-X deletes the entry and leaves the field open for a new entry. If you press <Enter> on a blank field, the list will close.

Delete Mode

Use this mode only if you want to delete the entire record for a city-pair. If you want to delete only a portion of the city-pair record, use the Edit mode.

Enter the codes for the origin and destination airports for the city-pair. The record will be displayed on the screen, along with the prompt Really Delete?. If this is indeed the record you want to delete, enter <Y>. 

If not, enter <N>. This blanks the screen and allows you to enter another choice, or you can quit the program by entering <Q>.

Video Mode

Video mode allows you to view one city-pair at a time, and all of its associated areas. Use the up and down arrows to step through the database. Press <Enter> or <Q> to quit.

Screen Mode

The input screen for Screen mode allows you to produce a city-pair enroute areas report for a range of city-pairs sorted alphabetically by city-pair. Enter the range of ICAO code city-pairs that you want to include in the report.

The report will display on the screen as defined above.

Hardcopy Mode

This mode functions in the same manner as the Screen mode, except that the report is directed to the system printer.

Quit Mode

To exit the program, enter <Q> from the command line. You will then have the option of entering the next program menu number directly, or defaulting to the last used menu screen.

The following descriptions represent the typical access and privileges afforded to users designated as Dispatch Managers/Supervisors. Users with dispatcher privileges will have limited access to a subset of the screens presented.
