We know that a lot of our customers and friends take love to take photographs of aircraft. In this forum you can show them off. Of course Aerosoft will never use any of them without asking permission (but a lot of the images on our boxes show photographs made by our customers!
Please only upload images you have all rights for (so photos you made yourself or have asked permission for).
Another way of thinking about this... to have a functional CPDLC, you have to have something for it to communicate with. PMDG and POSCON (link provided as I know some people have broken Google Searches... LOL! https://poscon.net/) will be providing this, so you'll have to ask them when it will be functional. Otherwise, it's like having just one telephone... you can talk into it all you want, but unless there is someone else with a telephone your conversation will be one sided!
No, CPDLC will not be functional yet. It will be in some form with the PMDG add in. But apart from logging in to KUSA and getting a departure and enroute clearance I think PMDG will model nothing else (for now).
