Pilots confirm receipt with a single button. (aviationsquad.com) Mais...

Does it use current ACARS frequencies? Does it use current voice frequencies? Does it use a new band of frequencies? There is a lot of missing information in this article.

We have had this for years now. Usuually the text msg is handled through a third party via the FMS system. SatComm units allow directvtext msg with your handheld phone but is quite exspensive and I doubt the airlines are going to let the crews text willy nilly over a long flight!
