Flight Key Group

The Flight Key group on the Plan screen contains four fields that must be completed to create a flight. It also displays the revision of the current flight and an icon that indicates if the flight is in automated.

 

The fields in the Flight Key group are described below.


ALC (mandatory): This drop-down list allows you to select the desired ALC for the flight that you are planning. By default, the ALC that you use to log in is displayed. This information must be entered before generating a flight plan.


Flight (mandatory): This field allows you to enter the flight number assigned to the flight. This information must be entered before generating a flight.

When selected, the informational context arrow opens a list of two options for the type of flight: Normal Flight or Test Flight. Select the desired type of flight. If Test is selected, a Test icon will appear next to the flight number here in the Flight Info group, and also next to the flight on the List screen.

See also Creating a Test Flight.

If a flight has computed and inflight revision, an inflight icon is displayed before the flight number.


Origin (mandatory): This field allows you to enter the ICAO or IATA identifier for the origin station. The identifier can be entered either in the ICAO or IATA format, but if entered in the IATA format, it will be converted and displayed in the ICAO format. This information must be entered before gener­ating a flight plan.

When selected, the informational context arrow opens a text box displaying the message View weather and NOTAMs. If you select this before entering an origin in the Origin field, the Information panel displays the Weather and NOTAM Query and you are prompted to enter a station in the Information Panel.

If an origin was entered before the informational context arrow was selected, the Information panel displays the Weather and NOTAM Query for the origin station.


STD (mandatory): This field allows the user to enter the scheduled day time of departure for the flight in UTC time (DDHHMM format). This date and time can be entered manually.

In the case that the current flight number has been previously used, the informational context arrow opens a list of STDs associated with that flight number. Selecting an STD from the list will load the flight that corresponds with that STD.
