View Full Version : A320 vs. 737NG (CFDS & ACARS)

13th May 2002, 19:35
If I am not mistaken, newer A320s fitted with ACARS can be set-up to relay all ECAM warnings and failure messages to Base in real-time. Similarly, engine performance can also be reviewed by Engineers at Base in real-time.

My understanding is that on the B737NGs fitted with ACARS, only engine performance parameters can be reviewed in real-time at Base since there is really no equivalent to CFDS on the Boeings.

Are my assumptions correct?

Thanks for any info.

Best regards,

We've been able to get the failures from the CMC and other stuff like parameters etc from our 747-400's for years through ACARS. Don't know about the 737 though. :)
