ABOUT OUR vAMERICARS SYSTEM
Our vAmeriCARS system, unique to American Airlines Virtual, is a state-of-the-art ACARS system developed in-house. It builds upon the foundation of normal ACARS, such as live flight tracking and dispatch, and adds more features to make our ACARS top-of-the-line and the best, giving us a competitive edge over the rest of the playing field. Planned features include the ability to record details of your entire flight, including time of pushback, rotation, and touchdown. Overspeed warnings and stalls are also recorded, enabling us to assist you if you need help flying properly.
We also plan to include the small details that make flying an enjoyable and full experience, such as the ACARS automatically playing the audio of the American Airlines safety video during pushback from the gate, and flight attendant announcements that automatically play throughout their respective stages of flight.
