Air Traffic Messages

This page features a table containing any ATC messages.


This page features a table containing saved documentation.

ETOPS/EDTO range rings Settings

Customers are now able to configure ETOPS/EDTO range ring radius if their company flight plans do not contain all of the information required.

The enhancement enables the configuration of ETOPS range ring rule times and distances per fleet and aircraft via the ETOPS range rings Settings>Fleet page. It ensures the rule time included in the plan matches a customer-configured time in the ETOPS range ring settings page and uses the customer-configured distance to draw the range rings on the charts.

The implementation will involve updating the Fleet menu settings to include a new option to open the new ETOPS/EDTO setting.

configure ETOPS/EDTO range ring radius


The ETOPS range ring settings page allows customers to add their preferred rule times and distances when the operator setting is enabled. The system uses these customer-configured settings to draw the range rings on the charts.

ETOPS Release and Arrival Sheet alternate times

Previously, the Arrival Sheet and ETOPS Planning sheet within Dispatch displayed the same time for all Alternate airfields within +/- 1 hour of the ETA. This has now been changed for each Alternate airfield to display its time based upon arrival time set in the DP002 message.

Aircraft registration mismatch

To provide better situational awareness, this feature highlights occurences of aircraft registration mismatch between schedule changes and an updated OFP to dispatch staff. The mismatch is highlighted on the Dispatch grid and Ops Board.

Integration updates

Replace current JND NOTAM process
