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.
Dispatch Warning Only - the text of the warning message entered is displayed as a Compute warning on the status bar, see Status Bar for more information.
Flight Plan Warning Only - the text of the warning message entered is included in the Flight Plan.
The FIR warnings database allows the user to display a predefined warning message when the route of flight of an active flight plan enters an FIR found within the database.
The FIR Warnings menu is a web-based version of the FOMS 394 menu. It has the same purpose as the FOMS 394 menu with the addition of a Copy button. The Copy button lets you copy FIR warnings.
See FIR Warnings Fields for a description of the fields used.
