The docks offer you a quick access to relevant information about Departure, Arrival and Alternate airport.

The docks will appear on the right side of the moving map after a route is created or loaded.






Note: You can set an alternate airport by tapping on the route summary and entering the ID of the airfield in the alternate field.


There are three kind of Docks:

  • DEP
  • ARR
  • ALTN


Tapping on one of the docks, will slide a card with information related to the waypoint. To close this card just tap anywhere on the map.

The card will have four pages:
