WebFOMS Alternates

For an overview of the WebFOMS features see the Aircraft Characteristics screen. The features described there can be applied to all 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 data file holds records of information used in the Alternate segment of the Flight Plan program. Files are keyed by the ICAO code for the destination airport, and each can hold up to 30 alternate airports that may be stored in the order of company preference or priority.

Note: The Alternates menu is a web-based version of the FOMS 110 menu. It has the same purpose as the FOMS 110 menu with the addition of a Copy button. The Copy button lets you copy alternates.

Refer to: Alternates Fields for a description of the fields used.


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.


Create new alternates for a specific destination airport.

Note: 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.
