Info and Concepts

Setting warning levels for aircraft is a very simple and useful function and is highly recommended.

The usefulness of the warning levels is as both a visual indicator of an item “tripping” the warning as well as the ability to show all warnings for all aircraft.

Separate warning levels for can be assigned for

  1. AD’s and Inspections
  2. Lifespan Components

Each aircraft has its own warning levels assigned independent of other aircraft. .

The warning level is compared to the “To Run” calculation for the item.

  • If the “To Run” of the item is under the warning level it will show the “Due” field for that item as a coloured background.
  • If the “To Run” of the item is at 0 or a negative value the “Due” field for that item will have a darker coloured background.

The usefulness of setting warning levels is more apparent from the schedules list view screen. There is a button “Show al Warnings” The warnings will be displayed inside a table from a pop up window. There is an option to switch the table from viewing “AD’s and Inspections” to “Lifespan Components”. This table has sortable headings to allow you to sort by rego etc.
