Transmitting Open-Flying Requests from Unimatic

Date: August 31, 2017
Type: AFA Article

We have received a number of reports from Members who have indicated they are having trouble submitting Open-Flying Requests (OFRs) directly from Unimatic. Upon investigation, it has been determined that recent changes made to the OFR screen altered the ability to transmit a request from the location historically used by many Members.  That is, at the bottom right corner of the screen, on the last line, after all screen text.

Members need to know that it is still possible to transmit OFRs from another location on the request screen as illustrated by placing the cursor on the last slash (“/”) of the second to last line on the page.  Once there, press ENTER.  (See screen shot below.)
