Data Communication Program Information
Voice communication frequencies between pilots and air traffic control (ATC) are becoming
increasingly congested and will not be able to accommodate the projected increase in air traffic
demand. Use of Data Communications (Data Comm) to supplement some routine voice
communications will increase efficiency, capacity, and safety.
Data Comm Status and Update Presentation
General explanation of the Data Comm program and update of implementation status.
