Strips are your quick window to important information and functions for the management of the Flight Data Record (FDR). All routine functions of an aircraft’s flight plan are accessible via clickspots on the strip. This page will introduce you to the structure of the strip, the information contained, and the functions accessible for the normal operation of the FDR.
On Position selection, strip setup will be configured as defined in the profile dataset.
Strip Setup can be altered by accessing the Strip Setup Window.
Strip mode and strip sort modes are explained here.
Strip Windows contain strips for tracks that are of state Preactive or greater. That is to say, all aircraft that enter one of the controlled sectors selected, or are otherwise under jurisdiction will trigger the display of a strip. Strip colour corresponds to the corresponding Track state.
Strip Mode selection decides which type of strip windows are available for display.
Beacon Strip Windows are organised by defined beacons, waypoints or airports. Flights of at least Preactive state with the defined beacon point in their route will appear in the window, or if none of the points are contained, appear in a generic OTHER Strip Window.
The OTHER Strip Window will automatically display when strips are present, and hide when empty.
State Strip Windows are organised by current Track State (Preactive, Announced, etc.).
Strips will move between windows when changing state. The OTHER strip window is not used in this mode.
Strip and Track selection are synchronised. Selecting a strip will select the corresponding track and vice versa. The selected strip will be scrolled into view (disables scrolling).
