FOMS Menu 395 (FIR Boundaries Program)

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.

This program allows you to view FIR Boundary information.

The modes available are:

  • Video
  • Screen
  • Hardcopy
  • Quit

Video Mode

Enter the FIR Region and the Sequence for the FIR you wish to view. The file will be displayed on screen. If more than one screen is required, you may use <Ctrl>-F to page to the next screen, and <Ctrl>-B to go back a page.

Note: The up and down arrow keys will not scroll you to the next FIR in this program, you must enter the Identifier and Sequence letter individually.

AIRAC Cycle / Cycle: Choose the AIRAC Cycle to use, see AIRAC Cycle for more information.

FIR Region: This field displays the four-letter ICAO identifier for the FIR.

SEQ: This field displays the Sequence identification letter (A-Z) for the FIR.

FLIGHT LEVEL RANGE: This field displays the lower and upper flight level limits of the region.

FIR UP/DWN: This field displays the identifier of the FIR that lies immediately above, or immediately below the region you are viewing.

Leg: This column displays the number of the corresponding leg.

Start Latitude/Longitude: This column displays the latitude and longitude of the start of the leg of the boundary, using the usual system convention for such entries i.e., South Latitudes and East Longitudes are negative, and values are entered as degrees, minutes, and tenths of minutes, e.g., 23.456 equals 23 degrees, 45.6 minutes.

End Latitude/Longitude: This column displays the latitude and longitude of the end of the leg of the boundary, using the usual system convention for such entries i.e., South Latitudes and East Longitudes are negative, and values are entered as degrees, minutes, and tenths of minutes, e.g., 23.456 equals 23 degrees, 45.6 minutes.

LOW FIR: This column displays the FIR that lies on the other side of the corresponding leg of the FIR that you are defining.

HIGH FIR: This column displays a second FIR that lies on the other side of the corresponding leg of the FIR that you are defining. This is used when the FIR that you are defining runs from sea level to unlimited, but the area next to it is shared by two FIRS split into upper and lower levels. For example FIR CZYZ (Toronto) is adjacent to an area shared by FIR CZYZ (Toronto) and CZUL (Montreal).

Screen Mode

Enter the Identifiers for the first and last FIRs you wish to have reported. Each FIR reported (and each sequence of each FIR) will start at the top of a new screen. Press <Enter> to scroll to the next page, or <Q> to quit from the report at any time.

Hardcopy Mode

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 midstream.

Quit Mode

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 menu by pressing <Enter>.
