1) DOWNLOAD
-> First of all you have to login to your LDM Account
-> navigate to the download section (click on the dropdown button next to your name)
-> download Laudamotion ACARS
-> install ACARS

2a) SCHEDULED FLIGHT
-> click on operation center on the website
-> book your flight
-> start vaBase ACARS
-> login to the ACARS system. The flight data will load automatically.

2b) NON SCHEDULED FLIGHT
-> start vaBase ACARS
-> login to the ACARS system
-> fill out DEP/ARR ICAO, Passengers, Cruise Alt, Cargo and Route
-> As flight no you can either put in your callsign you are using when flying online or just type in your LDM ID

3) FLIGHT AND REPORT
-> load your aircraft
-> once your fuel and baggage loading is completed you can click "start flight"
-> fly
-> once you are landed and on blocks again make sure your engines are off
-> click now on "End Flight" and close ACARS

ADDITIONAL) MANUAL PIREP
-> you can file a Manual PIREP if: you have issues with ACARS (only if you report the issue), your flightsim crashed on a flight thats 300NM or more and you are less then 50NM to the destination, if your ACARS crashes mid air, you have a written approval by ODIR (or VA HQ)
-> Manual PIREPS can only be filed if you are flying online (you have to include a tracker link in the remark section)


Happy flying
