Using the settings for overflight permits
Overflight permits showing data from Country Database
The settings from the Country Database are taken into account when creating a country list for overflight permits. The requirement is displayed in the 'Required' column of the 'Permit' pop-up window in OPS.
If no rule matches the flight, the country, and the trip type, 'Not defined' will be indicated.
If a rule matches the flight, the country, and the trip type and based on that rule the permit is required, 'Yes' will be indicated.
If a rule matches the flight, the country, and the trip type and based on that rule, the permit is not required, the flight will not be displayed on the list by default. However, if it's added manually, 'No' will be indicated in the 'Required' column.
The LANDING PERMITS option works in the same way as OVERFLIGHTS PERMITS - it has the same items to be defined and in OPS it also works in the same way.
