LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation knows the importance and value of sharing our knowledge with our customers who share our passion for flying. To ensure Duncan Aviation’s customers are well-informed when it comes to the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA’s) NextGen mandates and guidelines, several of the company’s avionics experts have updated our Straight Talk book on the NextGen initiative for Datalink. Datalink is a broad term, encompassing numerous types of digital systems that facilitate communications between Air Traffic Control and pilots.

Current datalink systems available are Future Air Navigation Systems (FANS), Aircraft Communications, Addressing, and Reporting System (ACARS), Aeronautical Telecommunications Network-Baseline 1 (ATN-B1) and Aeronautical Telecommunications Network-Baseline 2 (ATN-B2).

This book explains all four types of datalink communications, with particular focus on FANS, which is currently mandated in the North Atlantic Tracks (NAT) for all aircraft operating between FL290 and FL410.
