AOC Uplink OFP - Recent Changes

Recommended Posts

Simbrief

This week we coordinated with Simbrief and asked for some changes to be made to bring the OFP AOC Uplink more inline with real world procedures - and, more importantly, in an effort to mitigate some of the issues customers were seeing with uplinking their route into the aircraft. It also means that customers will only need to configure the Simbrief Downloader only once. 

You'll note that the destination folder has changed from the AOCService folder, to something like this:

C:\Users\Public\Documents\FSLabs Data\Routes

Please restart your Simbrief Downloader tool for these changes to take affect. You should then see the following:

Once the file is saved into the FSLabs Data\Routes folder, you'll then be able to uplink the plan at your convenience from the A320-X series. 

  • Navigate to INIT A on the MCDU (press INIT button)
  • Enter the ICAO FLT NBR (this should match the callsign in the filename you exported, in this case TCX430).
  • Press INIT REQUEST* 
  • The OFP will be uplinked to the aircraft

PFPX

Using PFPX, the OFP can be saved to the FSLabs Data\Routes folder: Select the down-arrow next to Print Flight Plan (OFP) to select Save.

Save the file to your C:\Users\Public\Documents\FSLabs Data\Routes folder and follow the steps listed above to uplink. It is important that the file name begins with the ICAO Flight Number - the default file name PFPX provides is fine, example: TCX430 EGKK-LTAI (19 Feb 2019) #1.txt

AOC Auto-uplink will continue to function, should you wish to continue to print your OFP's to the FSLabs\AOCService\Uplink directory.
