FlyByWire Simulations A32NX Now Has PDC/CPDLC

Communication between pilots and controllers is now even easier in the A320NEO.

The FlyByWire Simulations team continue to bring new quality features to their freeware aircraft in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Whilst development continues at pace for areas such as the hydraulics and the onboard computers, the team has added a much-requested feature to the aircraft. That feature is, of course, PDC/CPDLC with integration with the Hoppie network.

Once enabled through the onboard EFB, you will be able to communicate with controllers who can accept CPDLC requests. Requests could include pre-departure clearance (PDC), handovers and pretty much any controller to pilot instruction. More features are due to be developed in the future to enhance this functionality further.

In order to take advantage of CPDLC, you will need to download the ‘Development’ version of the aircraft from the FlyByWire Simulations installer. You will also need to have a HOPPIE network account, which you can get for free on their website.

To learn more about using PDC/CPDLC with the FlyByWire Simulations A32NX, you can read the full documentation on the FBW website.
