  1. I simply pointed out that CPDLC is just another form of text and some don't like using text(read some responses in this actual thread about the usage of text). Did I say avoid implementing it?, no. Do you honesty think we'll have a simplified, one size fits all versions of simulators, 3rd party aircraft CPDLC integrated pilot client?...yeah. I also forgot to mention that PMDG is implementing it in the upcoming 748 as well as ACARS which can also be used with their upcoming new ops center. So it can be used universally with the ops center, VAs, and/or online networks as the user see's fit.

Actually, CPDLC would have come in real handy at the last CTP event. IRL it's required for 'off-track' routings, etc. HF is mostly outdated and not used anymore expect for private operators going to Bermuda using older aircraft. My last operator had Cessna Bravos and Ultras that had HF so we could go to Bermuda. There will never be enough ATCs online to be able to handle all the voice congestion that occurs. CPDLC is utilized for PDCs, enroute changes (mostly oceanic), and a few other things. I don't think it would take away from the normal voice operations that we all use normally. CPDLC also integrates in to the aircraft's systems. Anyways, that's just a brief description. I'm sure you can google it and find out more. I don't want to type out a huge summary of it.
  3. In addition to what others have said (basic pilot exams, new voice codecs); the creation of CPDLC system/client. It seems like the major developers have started (some completed) the aircraft side of things. This would reduce frequency congestion and add to the overall immersion factor.
  4. You guys wear me out after just 2 hours...LOL....geesh.
  5. Dont' worry about it David, you guys still got us in just fine. It was fun. Great job to both ZOA and ZHN for a really fun time!
  6. Trace, I'm pretty sure you can do flights to the mainland, yes.
  7. Indy also just chimed in on PM and they'll be up also Thanks gang! See you all there!
  8. See you all there tonight! It looks like the local time for the event should be around 2000 hrs CDT Friday (0100Z SAT) for those who haven't visited the FNO or ZKC site yet. We'll probably have ATC on before and after the actual event times also (speaking for myself), so we can catch those who don't depart exactly on time from their destination airports. As always, thanks for flying Tornado Alley!
  9. HAHA, yeah, none of that frufru stuff. Just straight drip (coffee maker style). Now if you really want to get gross, I can go out and get some instant, like we used to drink in our canteens when we were in the service, but.....no need to go there...rofl!
  10. Doesn't anyone drink old fashioned Folgers anymore???? LOL
