PMDG747 and ACARS

Recommended Posts

Hello 

I have not seen this before the last complete reinstall/update. I am gearing up for the 747-8

When I enter any flight plan I get message "Datalink is not ready. ACARS Login is required".

ACARS is lit up at the FMC but clicking on it does not do anything.

Also, Starting the 747 closes Chaseplane. ODD.

Please advise

Here. With the latest update, you now need to log into ACARS, and the video below will show you how.

Thanks Kevin

I don't have the -8 yet.

But this is very cool and indeed realistic. The thing is I did not see a warning of the changes upon the -400 update.

Great video.

I cant wait to get the -8

Yeah, the ACARS login is now necessary for both the -400 and the -8. This update was done for the -400 in preparation for Global Flight Operations.

Same procedure. We had a thread about it here and there’s a knowledge base article on the support site.
