FOMS Menu 220 (Aircraft Characteristics Program)

The Aircraft Characteristics menu has a corresponding web interface. Refer to WebFOMS Aircraft Characteristics Menu for more information.

This data file is for the storage of information on each aircraft in the airline’s fleet. An aircraft record must be entered in the file before a flight can be run using that aircraft. Given only the airline’s identification number (or letters) for a particular aircraft (sometimes referred to as FIN, tail, wheel, hull or airframe number), other programs in the system can access this data file, and obtain information such as aircraft type, operating weights, SELCAL code, and fuel consumption deviations.

When the program is selected, the screen will be filled with a blank record and Command Line.

The modes available are:

  • Add

  • Edit

  • Delete

  • Video

  • Screen

  • Hardcopy

  • Quit

For Add mode, see FOMS Menu 220 (Aircraft Characteristics Program) - Add Mode.

For all other modes, see FOMS Menu 220 (Aircraft Characteristics Program) - Other Modes.

Note: 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.
