Working with planned flights
In this topic, you learn how to work with the flights in the PLANNED section of the Flight List.
We estimate that this will take 3 minutes to complete.
2 Detailed Explanation
Using the PLANNED section of the Flight List
The PLANNED section of the
Flight List contains flights for which flight plans have been
computed in N-FP (for N-Flight Planning users).
You can view scheduled flights hours before their takeoff and with weather layers active, further analysis and evaluate the planned route.
For clients using N-Flight Planning, flights
appear in this section as soon as a flight plan is computed.
Dispatchers planning multi-leg flights where the same aircraft with the same call sign complete the consecutive legs (but with different city pairs) may see the same flight number display in the PLANNED section twice.
Flights move from PLANNED to TRACKED once in-flight.
For planned flights, N-Tracking displays basic flight information on the Flight Details pane.
The Flight Plan slider is
inactive for the PLANNED section.
Flight plans do not continue to display on the map after you close the Flight Details pane.
Customers who subscribe to Route Analysis can launch their analysis directly from the Flight Details pane.
Click the Route Analysis icon.
N-Tracking launches route analysis.

Click the Search button.
The search results display the route string computed by N-FP and imported into N-Tracking.
For now, close the Route List pane,
Click the X (Close) icon.
Launching route analysis from the Flight Details pane for planned flights provides you with more flexibility in completing your planning.
