Mission

The common way to work with Veronte is to create missions. Missions can be created and managed though the Mission menu. To access this menu, click on logo000 at the upper left corner and select Mission in the pull-down menu. The Mission toolbar will appear as shown at the image below:

The mission toolbar provides graphical tools to create the path that the aircraft follows while it is in cruise phase. Multiple missions can be created for different purposes. The missions generated are stored into the Autopilot Air unit and into the Operation folder of the PDI configuration files when exported.

Next, a detailed description of the toolbar is given. And an example of how to set up a mission will be given in the following section.
