Enter the SITA addresses and/or FAX number to which you would send information. 

Note: If your system supports address aliases then a pre-stored address alias may be entered in the address field, however, in order to use an address alias as an address it must be preceded by the & symbol. 

Example: If you had an alias set up named IND, you would enter “&IND” in the address field if you desired to transmit flight plans to the addresses contained in this alias. Up to 4 addresses and 1 FAX number can be entered for both arrivals and departures.


In the Add and Edit modes the current system date and time is entered automatically. The three spaces following the time are for the initials of the person making the changes.


These fields will allow you to enter any comments that may be of interest regarding communications to or from handlers, agents, or crew at the airport.

Add Mode.

Example: The first record type is Config Type, and it has three options: Station, Fir and Integration. If no Integration records have been added, the Integration option will not be available in the drop-down list in Screen Mode.

Edit Mode

If you want to edit a record:

  1. Select the Config Type

  2. Click the Edit button and make changes in the address fields. Note: You cannot edit the record types, only the addresses. To edit the address fields, you can use the backspace key to delete one character at a time, or <Ctrl>-X to erase the whole field. Erasing an address and then pressing <Enter> will close up the line so that no blanks are left within a line of addresses.

  3. Enter the ICAO or IATA code of the station whose record you want to amend. The UPDATED field will be revised automatically to show the current date/time.

  4. In the REMARKS field, a little more flexibility is permitted; the left and right arrow keys can be used to move the cursor within the line. Characters can then be inserted at the cursor position, or you may delete the character on which the cursor rests by pressing the backspace key. 

  5. You can press <Enter> at any time that you have completed editing; the cursor does not have to be at the end of a line.

  6. To escape from the address table, you can step through to the bottom of the screen using <Enter>, or simply press <Ctrl>-E. 

  7. This will bring up the confirmation prompt allowing you to save your revisions, continue to make further changes to the record, or Quit without saving any changes. In the latter case the original record will be restored.

Delete Mode

To delete a record, enter the appropriate ICAO or IATA code. The record will be displayed, along with a "Really Delete?" prompt, entering <Y> at this prompt will delete the record from the file. If this turns out to be the wrong record, or you change your mind about deleting it, entering <N> will preserve the record in its original state.

Video Mode

This mode will allow you to call up an individual record for viewing, then you may use the up and down arrows to view preceding and succeeding records in the file. If you pass the limits of the file, you will be returned to a blank screen. Records are sorted alphabetically by ICAO code.

Note: This mode can be useful in finding information if you are unsure of the exact airport code, you may enter your best guess. If no such record exists, the next available record will be displayed and you can then search the file on either side of this record using the up and down arrow keys.

Screen Mode

This mode allows you to view records simultaneously, and only those fields which have entries are displayed. You will be requested to enter the range of stations you want to review which can vary from a single station by entering the same ICAO code for both the From and To limits of the search range, or the entire data file by pressing <Enter> twice to call up the default values of 0000 and ZZZZ.

To escape from the Screen mode, either press the Up arrow when the cursor is on the From field, or press <Enter> twice and enter <Q> in response to the confirmation prompt.

Note: In Screen mode, you will only see the record types that have been Added. 

Hardcopy Mode

This mode functions the same as the Screen mode, with the exception that the output is sent to the system printer. Also, since you cannot abort a report in mid-stream, be cautious about requesting entire data file prints that may tie up the printer for lengthy periods.

Quit Mode

To exit the program, enter <Q> from the command line. You will then be given the option of entering the next program menu number directly, or of 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.
