CPDLC for Pilots
You will also benefit from CPDLC when connected to overly congested communication channels, severe weather, or simply want to have a backup comm channel. Another benefit of CPDLC use as a pilot is being able to simply click one button when receiving instructions from an ATC. No need to type anything while trying to set up your systems, just one click.
Connecting to ATC
Our smartly integrated system can also determine where you are and where you are going and pre-fill position reports with data for extra convenience, so you won't have to worry about typing all your waypoints into the system. For supported aircraft, which allow us to synchronise the data from the FMC, this function will be the most accurate.
There are also plans for the future to support CPDLC directly inside of your simulator in the FMC of your aircraft.
Talking to your airline and othersAirlines and other pilots don't have individual stations, which you can log-on to, as you would do with ATC stations. Instead, you can use the Telex message system, which allows you also to send free text messages to individuals. Through Telex you have the opportunity to coordinate with your airline and other pilots, or simply say “hi” to them.
CPDLC and its Telex variant will also work in the Rotate Manager and App, giving you the ability to communicate to all of your friends currently logged in to the system.
