Cessna Citation CPDLC Tests Conducted by Universal Avionics

cabin-services-worldwideCPDLC (Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications) gives operators enhanced efficiency and the opportunity to reduce operational costs with the ability to receive direct clearance from ATC. This Departure Clearance Functionality was tested this week in Kentucky by Universal Avionics using their Cessna Citation 7.

Increasing efficiency is critical both on the ground and on the flight deck, and minimising flight crew workload, saving time and reducing costs are high priorities on the agenda of many an operator.

The functionality test recorded clearance delivery in just 22 seconds at the FAA tech centre, and Universal Avionics announce their testing as a success.

Providers of CPDLC to supplement voice communications recognise the need for reliability, and prepare to ready the industry for compliance before the end of the decade.
