A flight manifest is a collection of loads departing from a single location, but potentially having multiple destinations. They are either home base to out-station loads, or from a location where you have an agent who is logged into FlightSpan™ Ops and can create FlightSpan™ Ops manifests. (Not all organizations will choose to use manifests.)
Even though the loads may be going to multiple destinations, the manifest is associated in FlightSpan™ with just one departure point and the flight’s immediate destination so the payload can be calculated correctly. For example, manifest #34310 has loading from Sentani to Kasonaweja and loading from Sentani to Noiadi, but the manifest is associated with the WAJJ – KAS leg of this flight (the first destination after departure from WAJJ). The loads are summarized into one line that is downloaded onto the iPad.
The details of the manifest can be viewed by tapping on the manifest line. This can provide the pilot with the information they will need to load the aircraft and deliver the passengers and cargo to the correct destinations.
If the Company Custom Setting ‘Show Manifest Check In And Require Complete Check In Before Print’ is checked, a load check-in column will show on the manifest details page and each load will need to be checked-in before the manifest can be printed. The staff member who checks the load will be recorded and his/her initials will show on the printed manifest.
A Destination Manifest with just the basic flight information, aircraft configuration, and loads can be printed for the purpose of distributing with delivered loads. Each destination’s loads are printed separately on its own page with the manifest header information.
You can also print a Condensed Manifest with the basic flight information, aircraft configuration, and loads all printed on one page. This version is particularly useful for the pilot’s reference.
Or a Complete Manifest can be printed, which contains the same header information, and load information grouped by destination. But it also contains the aircraft weights for leg one, more complete configuration information, NOTAMs, airport information, runway inspection information, and pilot information.
