This is not the easiest interface to use. It is recommended to get a real ACARS client that integrates with your aircraft or controller scope. Consider this web interface a DEVELOPMENT TOOL.

Function temporarily disabled because of abuse. Thanks!

Project Progress

Lately we have seen a large (I mean LARGE) increase in system load due to many more clients appearing that are heavily using CPDLC. I am not entirely sure but I think there are a few robot servers doing airport clearances and such. This is not an issue in itself, but the speed with which these bots seem to work invites rapid-fire message exchange which isn't what CPDLC is about.

If at all possible, I would like to see a bit more delay between receiving a request and responding. Especially if the client software detects a long waiting time for a connection (five seconds, ten seconds) which indicates that there are a lot of other clients battling for connection time. The vast majority of clients is just checking for messages. So what about this:

If you detect a long waiting time for a connection, please drop your polling rate. This "should" make the system self-stabilizing.

Somewhere in November 2023, Hoppie's ACARS quietly passed the 10 million message milestone! Since its inception in the very early 2000s, tens of thousands of users have together exchanged over ten million messages. Quite something to celebrate.
