Plugins

Topsky (TS)

Topsky is a very powerful plugin and is used by default for all radar matters. For details you can have a look at the attached manual inside the package.

Groundradar Plugin (GRP)

Groundradar is a powerful plugin and is used by default for all ground matters. For details you can have a look at the attached manual inside the package.

The most used features are the tags, stand assignment, the additional maps (it depends on the airport) and the second ground view.

The top menu bar can be unpinned by clicking on the small icon on the left. Thereafter the menus below (e.g. Topsky) can be accessed (slowly and careful). To get the menu back, just hover in the area of the menu bar and it will show up again.

Virtual Controller Helper (VCH)

This plugin offers some useful but minor features like the cleared to land flag as well as the request list.

For all requests for clearance, startup, pushback, etc. the "REQ" column inside the Departure and Startup List should be used.

vACDM Plugin

The vACDM Plugin is designed to assist Delivery with the ACDM procedure to optimize the outbound traffic flow during high traffic situations. It is only available within the Startup List but disabled by default and can be enabled by using the Filter F.

To use the plugin the command .vacdm master need to be entered into the command line. Make sure you have set the active airport and runways!

Flightplan Checker (FPC)

Flightplan Checker checks all flightplans regarding SID restrictions, some minor route issues and cruise level (odd/even) depending on the airway used. You will see a red error message if some errors occur or a green "OK!" if everything is fine. No further actions are required to use this plugin. By default it is disabled and can be used within the Departure and Startup list using the filter "F".

Please check your local SOP if it is mandatory to check the pilot's filed route or not. Please be careful with odd/even amendments as this can be a really tricky topic and is solved by step climbs in real life.

Delivery Helper (DelHel)

Delivery Helper helps the Delivery controller to get through the initial data work for outbound traffic. It sets the correct SID and initial climb for all airports within the Langen FIR except EDDF, EDFH and EDTL! By default this plugin is disabled and can be enabled by using the filter F within the Departure and Startup list.

With a left click in the lists the primary used SID will be assigned. With a right click the secondary used SID will be assigned (e.g. SIDs for props).

When using .delhel auto only the primary SIDs will be assigned for all outbounds. That is the reason why this command should be used only for EDDS, EDDL, EDLP, EDLW, EDSB, EDLN and EDLV.

MAESTRO

MAESTRO is an arrival manager that is included inside the package. By default this plugin is not loaded. If you would like to use it, you have to load it first.

Right now the plugin seems to be a bit buggy, use on own risk!
