Configure Flight List content 

In this topic, you learn how to set the data elements that display in different Flight List layouts. 

We estimate that this will take 4 minutes to complete.

2       Detailed explanation 

Flight List Settings Overview

On the Aircraft list settings page, it is possible to configure the Flight List based on available data elements. You can choose whether selected data elements display when the list is minimized or maximized. The one identifier that cannot be removed from displaying is the Flight ID. 
 

Data elements you can display include:

        From

        To

        Registration

        A/C Type

        Airline

        ETA

        Altitude

        Position Source (ADS-B (terrestrial), SADS-B (Aireon space based), Transoceanic, Radar (ATC radar) and ACARS (ADS-C))

        Vertical Speed

        ModeS Address


You can also display:

        Latitude

        Longitude

        OFF

        Ground Speed

        Squawk

        Ground track

The "standard" layout for the Flight List displays the flight ID and two other fields.

In this example, those fields are the departure airport and the destination airport ICAO codes. 

Interaction 1

Click the minimize icon to see the Flight List in its smallest layout. 

Interaction 1 Click the minimize icon.

When you minimize the Flight List, only time zone information displays. 

Hiding the content of the Flight List can be helpful when you have lots of other information on-screen already.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the maximize icon.

When you click the restore icon, the Flight List displays in the "extended" (full-screen) layout. 
 

Interaction 1

Use the restore icon to display the standard layout again. 

Interaction 1 Click the restore icon.

Now that you know how to change between the different table layouts, let's look at how to choose which data elements display in each of the different layouts. 

Interaction 2Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the user name (Trainer_PF) dropdown button.

Interaction 2 Click the User Settings list item.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Flight list menu item.

Flight ID does not display for selection in the Available list. It always remains visible in the Flight List. 

Interaction 1

Change the standard layout by removing data elements from the Small table column and replacing them with other data elements (a maximum of two). 

For this example, remove "From" and replace it with "ETA".

Interaction 1 Click and drag the From table cell onto the Available column.

Remember that flight ID always displays.

Depending on your company's practices, flight number and flight ID may match. In this case, do not add Flight number to the small table, as it will replicate Flight ID and not add information.

Interaction 2Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click and drag the ETA table cell onto the Small table column.

Interaction 2Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click and drag the ETA table cell below the To table cell.

Let's move on to setting the data elements to display in the Flight List extended layout. 

Interaction 2Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click and drag the Ground Speed table cell onto the Extended table column.

Interaction 2Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click and drag Ground Speed to the bottom of the Extended table column.

Interaction 2Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click and drag the Position Source table cell onto the Extended table column.

Interaction 2Interaction 1

Use drag & drop again to re-order the data elements in the Extended table -- move Position Source to the last position in the table. 

Interaction 1 Click and drag the Position Source table cell onto the bottom of the Extended table column.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Save button.

To quickly restore the N-Tracking default settings, you can always click the "Set default values" button.

 

Let's see how that affects the Map screen. 

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Map tab.

With the changes to the settings in place, the Flight List displays the flight ID, the destination airport code, and the ETA. 

Interaction 1

Click the maximize icon to display the extended Flight List. 

Interaction 1 Click the maximize icon.

Based on the changes to the settings you made, the extended layout of the Flight List displays the

        flight ID,

        the destination airport code,

        the ETA,

        the plane registration number,

        the airline ICAO code,

        the plane's ground speed (GS) and

        its position source. 

Interaction 1

Click the restore icon to view the Flight List in its standard layout again. 

Interaction 1 Click the restore icon.

Having read this topic, you now know how to display the Flight List in a standard, minimized, and extended layout -- and how to choose the fields that display in each of those layouts.

The one data element that always displays is the flight ID.

Use the layout that best suits the task at hand.
