1       Introduction 

Configure Flight Details pane content 

In this topic, you learn how to update the flight information that displays on the Flight Details pane to help you monitor flights. 

We estimate that this will take 4 minutes to complete.


2       Detailed Explanation 

Flight Details

Use the Flight Details pane to configure the information that displays for flights.

Your options include:

 

        Flight number

        Cost index
(currently not available as GW and Take Off Weight come from the flight plan)

        Position Source

        GW

        Takeoff Weight

        Track

        Ground Speed

        Vertical Speed

        Altitude

        Flown distance (in km or nm)

        Updated

        Remaining distance (in km or nm)

 
Displayed Graph tabs provide graphical representations of your flight.

Tabs include:

        Altitude

        ETA

        Notes (text only)
 

As you learned in the User Interface Orientation topic, the flights that display in your Flight List depend on your desk assignment (configured by your N-Tracking Administrator).

For individual flights, you can add and remove data fields on the Flight Details pane independently -- to hone in on your information requirements.
