Once you have configured the X-Acars Preferences
, you are ready to start a flight with X-Acars and report your position automatically for our Virtual Radar
Just specify our flight number, i.e. the 9F... number as the X-Acars Flight Number
and click on Flight Data via ACARS
to automatically retrieve the flight information from our database. This will then populate the relevant information in X-Acars.
Please note, that you can obviously only do this after
you have created the flight on our web site and have saved
it with all the relevant pre-flight information, i.e. passenger count, weights, fuel, etc. using the Update Information
button on our database
The only remaining item is to specify the cruising altitude
as a flight level, e.g. 360 (for FL360, i.e. 36,000 feet).
Once all information has been transferred and displayed in X-Acars (as shown below) and you are ready to start tracking
