The following widows will appear displaying the record selected for correction and allow you to over-type any corrections on the record. You may use the TAB key to move from field to the next field on the record while the SHIFT+TAB will navigate backwards on the fields on the same record.

The User can make their corrections by over-typing on any field and when finished making the corrections on the record then click OK. It should be noted that the system will validate and take into account if any flights are carrying over to the next day because the date is also being stored in the OUT, OFF, ON and IN fields even they are not displayed on the screen. The Date recorded on this screen is the OUT date or departure date from the gate. So, it is possible to leave the Page 4 of 5 Aerosoft Confidential 2006

Once the user presses “OK” the record will remain in this correction screen until the “Move to Active” button is pressed. Only records in Active state will be Time Applied.

When all records have been corrected and moved to active, this is all the intervention that is required of the User for correcting rejected records. The next flight log download will pick these records up and process them with the rest of the downloaded records.
