CPDLC Pilot Training

Future Air Navigation System (FANS 1/A+) is the product name given to a suite of software upgrades that support CPDLC, ADS-C, AFN and AOC communications over ACARS protocols. FANS-1 was originally developed by Boeing, while Airbus originally developed FANS-A. The two systems are functionally identical. Industry standardization efforts sought to refer to both packages simultaneously, hence the naming convention “FANS 1/A”. The “+” came about as a minor update to the industry standard, DO-258 to DO-258a, and is primarily due to the new message latency feature in CPDLC. All FANS 1/A or FANS 1/A+ messages can be sent over Inmarsat or Iridium satellite systems in addition to VHF (VDL Mode 0, Mode A, or Mode 2.).
