Hello,

First, a big hello to all.  

I flew a fair bit on CP as a kid and teenager, so this VA means a lot.  I can't fly a lot due to having small kids and a demanding job - but will try as best I can.

My question is around the standard CP Air ACARS programme I downloaded off the Pilot center, vs the various other flight tracking progammes out there.  From the handbook, it appears I need only one, is that it?  In other words, if I just download and install the CP Air ACARS, that's it, I don't also need to get FS ACARS or any of the others?

thanks,

DL (CPC 2186)

Yes, that is correct.  Just install and enter the settings and connect to the server and to flightsim and away you go smiley  If you have any issues or other questions, let me know.

Great - thanks!

I'll be freeing up some time in the next 2-3 days to do my first flight (already bid on).

The bids only last for so long, but they are never not available; you can enter bids at the last minute, so they are always available smiley

Thanks all.  Put in 2 legs.  The CP AIR ACARS, is easy to use, works perfectly and makes logging easy.  Once I figured out the order, it was easy peasy.

What a great system.

Except that now I'm stuck in Edmonton ... lol  

Thanks to Bruce et al - this is a lot of fun.

Thanks Daniel.  You can always "buy" a jumpseat ticket; if you have the cash wink

Thanks to you, Bruce for all your hard work.

 

That's more of an personal/inside joke as a native Calgarian, being necessarily predisposed to not like Edmonton!cheeky  

Actually, having flown (on business, not as pilot) the YEG->YVR leg countless times, it's nice flight, especially crossing the Rockies during early sunset.  If there's an open bid for late afternoon flight, I look forward to recreating those legs from the cockpit.

cheers,

dl

I was going to say - you are never stuck in Edmonton! Its a great place.

But seeing as you are from down there...theres no accounting for lack of taste.  lol

 

Hopefully we can meet up for a flight
