Part 129 (foreign carrier) actions (proposed)
Provide responsible IFO with evidence State of the
Operator approved them for data comm ops
Approval must include:

– the foreign air carrier is approved for data link communication in
accordance with XXXX (ex. ICAO GOLD) criteria
– the aircraft and aircraft equipment are eligible and approved for data link
communication
– the flight crews are trained to conduct data link communication
•
•
•
•
Approved data link system make and model (M/M)
Each Aircraft M/M/S
Procedures for using data link communication
Any other pertinent information

Food for thought
(as of 23 April 2015)
Operators with FAA A056 = 486
Part 121 (U.S. Carriers) = 11 (varying fleets)
DCIT participants = 5
Part 129 (Foreign Carriers) = 0 (no need)
Parts 91K / 125 / 125M / 135 = 39
Part 91 (A056 not needed for CPDLC-DCL) = 436
Applications currently being evaluated = 60

A056 Snapshot (as of 23 April 2015)
DCIT operator A056 application status
• Opr A – waiting for Load 12 before adding B737 to A056
• Opr B – contact with POI, no application submitted to
add B737 to A056
• Opr C – contact with POI, intent letter submitted for initial
A056, full application not submitted
High risk of these applications not being
approved prior to IOC

So…
What is Flight Standards doing to reach those
475 (and growing) operators that are not DCIT
participants?
Besides the many briefs we’ve given (GAMA,
NBAA, NACA, OSWG, etc)…

Information for Operators (InFO)
InFO (Information for Operators)
• AFS tool to get information to all operators in FAA database
– Hi-level explanation of the CPDLC-DCL service
– Will provide a general game plan (waterfall / IOC timeline)
– Show where to find more information (AFS-470 web site)
• Prior to publishing, I need:
– Flight Deck User’s Guide finalized (ops system)
– DCIT avionics configurations recommendations
– Lessons-learned document
– ACF 15-01 decision (charting options, airport pubs, etc)
– Dispatch docs (ISD/CRD/SDB, end-to-end, etc)
