 +Next you can define the location where the aircraft is being generated. You can either select one of the pre-defined location or enter a custom degree (in relation to the current aircraft heading).
 +
 +Now enter the distance to the generated aircraft and the true airspeed it will be flying towards you.
 +
 +You can also define a relative altitude (by default it is generated exactly at the altitude your aircraft is currently at) and a vertical speed.
