November 2021 VA Update

Hi Pilots,

This month brings a number of VA updates, which are detailed below.

Addition of JetBlue

As American Airlines' strategic north-east alliance with JetBlue has taken hold, JetBlue has been added to the VA bringing new flights throughout the America's. We will be migrating to the winter schedule this month, we hope to have most routes updated by mid-November. If you have any suggestions do not hesitate to create a support ticket.

Native SimConnect support in VAS ACARS

The latest version of VAS-ACARS has native SimConnect support. This means it is not required to use FSUIPC anymore if you are using a FSX-based simulator, including Microsoft Flight Simulator. If you encounter any issues using FSUIPC to record or you would like simply like to use one less program in your simulator, you can change to recording using SimConnect.

To switch to SimConnect, open VAS ACARS and click the cog wheel in the top-right hand of VAS-ACARS. Click on Use for SimConnect, the change is applied immediately. The method is also shown in the video below.

The next features we are working on inside VAS ACARS are native X-Plane support and support for Linux and macOS.

Monthly tour

The monthly tour takes you across Asia, through some of the busiest airports.
