FOMS Menu 232 (ETP Policies Program)

This program will allow you to group one to six different ETP calculation scenarios together as a single policy, which can then be assigned to an individual aircraft. The ETP calculation routine within the flight plan program is capable of calculating the fuel requirements according to six different scenarios for each pair of ETP alternates. This program allows control over which scenarios are to be used for any given aircraft. When the program is called, the screen will display an empty record, and a command line listing the various modes that may be selected.

The available modes are:

  • Add / New

  • Edit

  • Delete

  • Video

  • Screen

  • Hardcopy

  • Copy

  • Quit

Add Mode




Enter the airline code for the policy.


Enter a letter (A-Z) as the ETP Policy Identifier. 

If the policy already exists, it will be displayed, along with a Record Already EXISTS warning.


Enter the airline code for the scenario.


Specify which scenarios are to be used in the calculation of ETP fuel requirements by entering the airline code and scenario number for each. When you enter a scenario number, the description of that scenario will be displayed for confirmation.

Edit Mode

To edit a policy, enter the airline code and the policy identifier. The appropriate record will be displayed (if it exists), and you may then edit any of the fields in the record.

Delete Mode

To delete a policy, enter the key information: Airline Code and Policy Identifier. The policy will be displayed on screen, along with a Really DELETE? prompt. If you are satisfied that this is the record you want to delete, respond <Y>; otherwise enter <N> and you will be able to alter your selection.

Video Mode

This mode allows you to view one record at a time, and to scroll through the file in alphanumeric sequence (of ALC and policy identifier) using the up and down arrow keys. If the ALC/Policy ID combination you enter does not exist, a warning will appear. Pressing <Enter> will display the next available record (i.e., next record in alphabetical order).

Screen Mode

The Screen mode permits you to view more than one record at a time. When this mode is entered, the screen will be changed to range entry. Enter the airline code, the range of Policy Identifiers, the scenario ALC and the scenario number that you want to review. You can also specify, the default values are A and Z. Use <Enter> to page through the report, or enter <Q> to quit.

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

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

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.
