  • New temperature alert for Takeoff Forecast on AMIDS


Starting in July 2017, the maximum temperature alert of takeoff condition for the next 2 hours has been extended into the next 3 hours on AMIDS. This was in response to a user request during the latest user satisfaction survey. The mini-display box changes its background colour to orange/red when the temperature within the alerting period (3 hours) is forecast to be over 31/34 degree Celsius respectively to remind users of possible impact to the aircraft maximum takeoff weight.
