Filter Runway

Link to eLearning

1       Introduction 

Filter Runway 

This will cover how you can filter the charts so you only see charts that are related to the runway you are arriving to or departing from. 

We estimate that this will take 3 minutes to complete.


2       Detailed Explanation 

Chart Filtering by RWY

After enabling the corresponding App Setting you will be able to filter charts based on the runway heading that you select when choosing/creating your route. This will allow you to only select the charts that are related to the runway you are departing from or arriving to.
You will still be able to select all the runways should you wish to.

When a chart preference (specific choice of charts, configured by the EFB Admin, for a specific combination of FROM AD, TO AD and runways) rule is triggered, the RWY Filter is applied on top of it. It means that, for example, if a chart preference (LFBO / RWY14L / LFPG) calls for a chart specifically related to runway 32R, then this specific chart will be filtered out by RWY Filter.
