WebFOMS ETP Policies

For an overview of the WebFOMS features refer to the Aircraft Characteristics screen. The features described there can be applied to all screens.


For instructions on how to make modifications on the WebFOMS screens, see Modify, View Aircraft Characteristics. It uses the Aircraft Characteristics as an example but can be applied to all WebFOMS screens.


Screen is the default view when you first go to a WebFOMS screen. When Screen is selected you can view all records that exist in the system. Select the arrow in the first field of the WebFOMS screen to access the drop-down menu to view the list of available records. Note: Only items that exist in the database are shown in the drop-down list.

This program allows you to group one to six different ETP calculation scenarios together as a single policy, which can then be assigned to an individual aircraft. The ETP calculation routine within the flight plan program is capable of calculating the fuel requirements according to six different scenarios for each pair of ETP alternates. Also, this program allows control over which scenarios are to be used for any given aircraft. When the program is called, the screen will display an empty record, and a command line will list the various modes that may be selected.





Enter the airline code for the policy.


Enter a letter (A-Z) as the ETP Policy Identifier. If the policy already exists, it will be displayed, along with a Record Already EXISTS warning. Note: In the ETP Policies options, you must create or designate a policy to include the scenarios for the TLS or CFSS check, used in ETOPS Beyond scenarios.


Enter a remark for the policy, the description can be viewed on the Plan screen in the status bar when the policy is added.


Specify which scenarios are to be used in the calculation of ETP fuel requirements by entering the airline code and scenario number for each. When you enter a scenario number, the description of that scenario will be displayed for confirmation.


Enter a description of the policy.
