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.
This program stores the default and per-aircraft suitabilities for a given ICAO. The file is keyed on the four-letter ICAO identification code.
The modes available are:
Add / New
Copy - you can copy airport suitability settings using the Web FOMS 122 menu
See Aircraft Suitability Fields for a description of the fields used.
Entering <E> from the Command Line will put you into Edit mode. In this mode you may edit any of the fields in the input screen of a previously added suitability record.
When you enter the ICAO code for an airport, the program will display the suitability record for that station, along with a prompt to confirm that you do wish to delete them all. A <Y> response will delete the airport form the suitability database while a <N> response will clear the screen and re-position the cursor in the ICAO field for entry of another station.
Calling up the Video mode will enable you to view a selected Airport and its related suitability information, and to step through the data file alphabetically, using the up and down arrow keys. The initial screen displays the usual blank record, and requests entry of an initial ICAO code. The file is sorted alphabetically by ICAO code of the airport. Pressing <Enter> will clear the display, and permit you to enter a new destination.
This mode will allow you to review the suitability tables for a range of airports at one time. Entering <S> from the Command Line will call up the Report Selector screen, and position the cursor in the first field.
From and To: Enter the ICAO codes for the range of stations you wish to have reported (e.g., entering CY to CY will call up a display of all airports in Canada).
FIN: Enter a valid FIN in this field to further refine the report to show suitable airports within the range for the FIN specified.
Type: Enter a valid TYPE in this field to further refine the report to show suitable airports within the range for the type specified.
Series: Enter a valid SERIES in this field to further refine the report to show suitable airports within the range for the TYPE/SERIES specified. This field is only accessible if the user inputs a valid type in the TYPE field.
Hardcopy mode functions in the same manner as Screen mode, with the exception that the report is sent to the printer and that hence you do not have the ability to terminate the report in mid-stream.
Entering <Q> from the Command Line will return the Next PROGRAM-NUMBER prompt so that you have the option of going directly to your next program if you know the menu number, or of returning to the previous.
