Creating and Managing Flight Groups

Flight groups are created and managed through the FOMS programs available through the Maintenance screen. Flight groups are created, changed or renamed in FOMS Menu 151 (Desk Criteria Table Program). There is no maximum number of flight groups available, and the use of groups is not mandatory.

  

Once in FOMS Menu 151 (Desk Criteria Table Program), you may edit any of the fields in the usual manner. The down arrow key will permit you to move the cursor from line to line, whereas the <Enter> key will move the cursor from field to field across a line.


In this article we will go through the process steps for each of the following operations:

  • Create a flight group
  • Rename a flight group
  • Delete a flight group

  

To create a flight group:

  1. Go to the Maintenance screen.
  2. Through the FOMS interface, go to FOMS Menu 151.
  3. Type <E> to enter Edit mode.
  4. Type <K> to sort by desk.
  5. Insert a new line by pressing <CtrI>-I. This will open a blank line immediately above the line on that the cursor was positioned when you entered <Ctrl>-I.
  6. Enter a flight group name in the DESK field. Numbers and letters can be used in flight group names. The remaining fields are not yet supported and will reset to their default values when saved. Press <Enter>.
  7. Enter <1234567> in the MTWTFSS field and press <Enter>.
  8. Exit to a confirmation prompt by using <Ctrl>-E. The prompt Information OK? (Y/N or Q-no change) will be displayed.
  9. Enter <Y> to save if correct. If not correct, enter <N> to correct the information, or <Q> to quit without saving.
