Hello VUA Community Members,
Welcome to the latest edition of the “Did you Know Series” for September 2023. Our goal is to share interesting facts and tips about VirtualUA and our community. Today, we’ll be highlighting a fascinating feature in our ACARS system that you may not be aware of. Have you ever seen the acronym OOOI in the aviation industry and wondered what it meant? OOOI represents the times that are automatically recorded by the aircraft systems during a flight, including pushback, take-off, landing, and arrival at the gate. To take advantage of this feature, book and dispatch your flight via simbrief, then start your flight, and you’ll be able to view the OOOI times on your ACARS. This information is useful for our members, and we hope you found it informative. If you have any suggestions for future topics, please share them with us. Happy Flying!
