Hello everyone,

 

Is the ATC system on the new 747 FMC not simulated or am I missing something? When I press the 'ATC' button and am shown the 'ATC LOGON/STATUS' page, the four squares under 'Logon to' (where you're supposed to write the 4-letter code) are all greyed out and I am unable to type anything there.

 

Thank you!

The ATC function would need something to log in to. There are no systems at the moment (that are widely in use) for it to log in to.

 

As mentioned, the greyed out boxes mean the function is not available.

I see, thank you for the reply.

 

So for now there is no way to simulate logging on to controllers such as Shanwick (EGGX) or Gander Oceanic (CZQX)?

Nope. You can fill in a few of the fields, but it won't do anything.

Will they be available any time soon? I was just looking through the FMC (new 747 customer) and found the ATC page and also didn't know what to do with it.

You can actually find the answer a few posts up. Kyle have already answered this quite well.
And if there isn't any system available to log on to, currently, I doubt it will be available "any time soon".

Hopefully in future VATSIM and IVAO will produce a SDK and systems with the ability to use CPDLC and the like. For now, you are stuck to using vPilot or the other clients out there.
