 // Both the MAPS and PRESETS menus are in two parts, with choices in the top part changing the options available in the bottom part. Please note that these choices will include ALL options for the whole FIR, some of which may not be relevant to the particular ATC position you are working. Refer to FIR documentation for how to use these menus.// // Both the MAPS and PRESETS menus are in two parts, with choices in the top part changing the options available in the bottom part.
