This article provides you with information for how to view turbulence information on the map and how you can avoid turbulence when building a flight plan.
Turbulence is based on your subscription to N-Flight Planning (NFP). If you do not see the turbulence function on the map screen, you do not have the turbulence module. For further information, contact Support.
Click the Turbulence checkbox displays turbulence information on the map. Darker lines on the map indicate higher levels of turbulence. The Flight Level dropdown list lets you specify the flight level to display the winds. Turbulence information is time-stamped on the map.
Turbulence data is only available from the Telvent weather source. You must set Win Source to TEL on FOMS 170 to use turbulence data in flight plan calculations.
View turbulence data on the map
You can view turbulence data on a point on the map or for an airport by right-clicking on it. You must have the turbulence checkbox selected to view turbulence data on the map.
FOMS 463 menu displays turbulence data provided you have TEL as the weather source.
FOMS 220 menu to set a turbulence level to avoid when computing a flight plan.
Once a flight has been computed the turbulence data for the main route and all of the Altn, including reclear, are shown on the flight plan.
The NFP system will produce a Compute warning if it is unable to avoid the turbulence specified in FOMS 220. This can also be set for the fleet in Airline Code Parameters (FOMS 170).
Route wind profile
If the route profile chart is added in the flight package and set to Distance Winds, you will be able to see turbulence displayed on the chart.
