ACARS
Setting and Use
Overview

ACARS is a program for data transmission to our VMS server.

Data such as departure / arrival airport, travel speed, travel altitude are recorded and transmitted to the server.

The transmission to the server does not record any personal data, only data generated in the simulator.

In order to use our live flight tracking, you have to register in the Operation Center.

This registration is voluntary and not a requirement to fly on our airline.

However, active participation is desirable.

If you have any questions, please contact the @Manager or @jeffbo in the Discord
