I hope everyone has a Happy Holiday and a safe new year. One question to Mathijs is will the Step by Step Guide for the A330 come out next year as we have been waiting for almost a year now? Just aski

Few more screenshots from the CPDLC & DCDU. This time including also Oceanic clearance and some standard message exchange between the pilot and ATC. There are still few minor things that will be ironed out before release.

Is this going to be available for both A32x and A330?


Initially for the A330 only. A320 series is still undecided.

Hey!

 

IVAO/Vatsim compatibility/required?

If yes -> Possibility to receive ATIS via the system (for example looking what runways are active from IVAO- controller)


It uses Hoppie's network which is a standalone network that can be used with both IVAO and VATSIM.

Hopefully next week. Still need to do final testing of the update, so it all depends how that goes.

Here are some more screenshots from a feature that has not been shown before. :)

That looks fantastic .. and it couldn't be a better timing also!

 

I'm currently working on a personal project to add a layer of automation to HOPPIE. At the current state, the system supports automatic logon and would respond to PDC requests automatically (in a CPDLC Msg). The PDC clearance would contain the departure runway taken from the current ATIS, the ground and departure freq  (if exists) from AIRAC and still working on the SID. Next would be the automatic Oceanic clearance delivery and then add more support for other types of requests.

 

The motivation behind this work comes from the fact that most of the time , no stations are available on hoppie to process our requests, and also people who don't fly VATSIM  would not be able to use CPDLC capabilities of the upcoming A333 or the already available FSLABS A320, so the idea is to make CPDLC accessible for everyone.

 

To start/stop a station with automatic capabilities, just send a free text to AUTOPS station as in the screenshot and the station would become alive after a 60 sec maximum delay.  "START EDDF A." would start EDDF and the A stands for the station type (A: airport, C:center, O: Oceanic) . if none specified than it defaults to A: airport. It has no effect for now, but in the future , it would define which messages a station can handle for added realism (ex. an Airport facility will not process Oceanic Clearances or CLIMB TO requests ). 

 

Please feel free to test the system and provide feedback or requests. If you have special CPDLC message formats that you use for the A333, I'll be happy to add them to the system. Also, do you think we can cooperate on the oceanic clearance?  Let  me explain: the idea is to make the A330 seamlessly append the flight plan or at least the oceanic part of it from the FMGS to the OCX http POST request (the pilot won't see it in the DCDU). This would be read by the oceanic station and used to deliver an accurate  automatic clearance. The same mechanism would be used to reply to the newly introduced CONFIRM ASSIGNED ROUTE message in the oceanic airspace. An alternative would be to make the user upload his callsign/flightplan to a webpage created for this purpose before the flight . Please Let me know if that would be possible or if you have better ideas.  

 

Last thing, this is going to be a free service and will always be.

 

Sorry for the lengthy message!

 

Amine.

Just made a minor change :

 

"START EDDF AC. " : PDC will be delivered over cpdlc 

"START EDDF AT. " : PDC delivered over telex.

"START EDDF. " : defaults to AC

Is there any updates to the manual for the CPDLC as I can not find any?  Is the a manual for the new software?

 

JeffG


Currently there is no manual for CPDLC but we'll consider adding some information about it in the future.
