Pre Departure Clearances sample Flight Plan

Page history last edited by PBworks 14 years, 4 months ago

 

Here are some examples of various Pre Departure Clearances:

 

"Clearance delivery" on Tower VHF frequencies has been around for many years and took up a lot of time reading the long message and then asking for a "read back". But a few years ago the FAA got into the 21 Century and started using ARINC'S ACARS system to deliver these clearances over the local ACARS frequencies at selected airports around the country.

 

This could be the first step to the FAA using digitalized communications for many other ATC clearances. They have said they are planning for this. But instead of using a proven existing system, they are planning to invent an entirely new operation using transponder fequencies! This should be interesting!

 

Except for Air Canada, I have not found any foreign carriers making use of this as yet. Maybe, you all might have caught such a message. I'd appreciate your help in letting me know who they are.

 

The following are a few examples of PDC (Pre Depature Clearance) messages I've copied. The transmission "times" are given after the upload and sometimes at the start.
