ACARS Support
« on: April 24, 2012, 11:43:30 PM »
Hi again Christian,

Can we make avilable at some point ACARS support? With the upcoming release of PSX from www.aerowinx.de...

Would be very nice to support flight plan uplinks and wind uplinks.

I'm guessing it should not technically be too difficult to implement.

Thoughts, comments, questions?

Yes Peter,

But someone will need to make available the flight plan and wind data in an FMS readable format.

So PFPX will upload the data to a server ready for the FMS to request the data as an uplink via ACARS.

Peter,

That is spot on...

So PFPX just needs to make a .ROU file in the PSX format... Then that is placed in the store.

When the aircraft sends the route request via ACARS it would be unlinked into PSX
