create a flight like normal on the FMC, and then when you have activated and executed the flight plan you've made, there is a button on the RTE page (LSK L5 i think) that reads: "RTE COPY" or somethig like that.then, it will enunciate what it saved it under.as for acars, i don't use it at all so no idea.tom jim

Patrick,To save the route, go to RTE page 1 after activating the route and press LSK 5L RTE COPY - this stores the route and flashes the name it used, ie "KTUSKLAX001"The ACARS system is not yet functional...

Aircraft Communication Addressing and Reporting SystemIt operates from the center console CDUWithin the PMDG environment it has the limited functionality of Flight time recording (out/off/on/in times) though this is pretty useful.Future PMDG expansion of this feature has been hinted at.For more info see:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ACARS

Can you change the name of the Co Route? Because I have a few real world Cathay Co Routes I would like to use :D

Thanks for that one Ralf, I had been saving the route then delving into the PMDG route folder on the PC to change the file name.Works just as well but yours is a far nicer solution!Adrian Smith
