The program responds with a Record Not Found - Press <Enter> for NEXT AVAILABLE prompt, and you can use the up and down arrow keys to cycle through the available options on file.

To clear the screen in preparation for another entry, press <Enter> rather than the up or down arrows. To return to the Command Line prompt, enter <Q>.

Screen Mode

This mode permits you to review several records at once. When this mode is selected from the Command Line, the screen changes to a Report Selector. Enter the ICAO codes for the range of stations that you wish to review approaches. Enter the ICAO code twice if you wish to have the approaches for just one Airport reported.

Hardcopy Mode

Hardcopy mode functions in the same manner as Screen mode. The exception is that the report is sent to the printer so you do not have the ability to terminate the report in mid-stream.

Quit Mode

Entering <Q> from the Command Line returns the Next PROGRAM-NUMBER prompt. You have the option of going directly to your next program if you know the menu number or of returning to the previous menu if you press <Enter>.
