Question about ACARS

Recommended Posts

Hello gentlemen,I have upgraded to the 800-900 version of the NG a few weeks ago.I have noticed that the ACARS is now functional in the FMC. But try as I might, I don't know how to use it:-hmmm I can't find anything in any of the manuals or maybe I'm just not looking in the right place. Can someone tell me what it does and how to use it? Is it just for flying online or logging on to a server? Please forgive me if this has been answered and if this is a silly question.Thank you,Elroy (Like in the Jettsons:P )

I'm not 100% sure about this, but I don't think ACARS is modeled. It's there, but I don't think it actually works as opposed to downlink and uplinkNick B.Continental Airlines Virtual 737NG Pilothttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg--AMD Athlon XP 3200+ @ 2.2 Ghz (Equal to 2.8 ghz)400W Power supply3x 80 mm Case FansSoyo VIA KT600 Dragon PlusnVidia GeForce FX 5200 128 mb2 x 512 PC400100 GB Western DigitalMicrosoft Sidewinder Precision 2

ACARS does record your gate times in the events section you can use it for block times for a VA.

Hi Elroy,You might be interested in FSACARS(reported on AVSIM front page, link below)? I can't tell you anything about it yet, I'm afraid, as I'm just off to check it myself :-).Looks interesting, though.BR,Frankhttp://www.satavirtual.org/fsacars/
