A centralized ACARS-- help!

Postby legoboyvdlp » Fri Jul 10, 2015 8:19 pm

I was wondering, would it be possible to make an ACARS which would record to a read-only file, even better an online tracker, certain properties at certain times?

For example, if touchdown="yes" write property/feet per minute to xxxx file
or something like that

And could you write any property?
I joined Delta VA .org, and without an ACARS recording lots of things I can't really do anything there... I can't switch planes or become a captain... all I can do is fly the A318, A319, A320, A321, ATR-42, ATR-72, Avro RJ-85, B1900, DHC-8-100, DHC-8-Q400, EMB-120, JS41, L-100, S2000, S340 which is all very well... but...

So, how could it be done?
I'm not sure they would even accept it.

Doesn't Delta VA have an acars they share configured to send them the information you need to send them ? According to the NEWS page you download the Delta acars from the fleet library.

--your welcome hehe :-)

It works with FUUIPC, (some program connecting FS* and something else) but we can't use it.

yes, that is possible, we even have dedicated tutorials describing the process, do a wiki search for "Nasal" and "RPC" (=remote procedure calls). In addition, there are now dedicated http APIs available for making data available to a web service.
Please don't send support requests by PM, instead post your questions on the forum so that all users can contribute and benefit
Thanks & all the best,
