The COMM display ATC menu selection allows display of downlink message pages.

ATC data link requires manual logon to a participating ATC facility. Once logged on, transfer to adjacent ATC facilities is normally automatic.

Requests from the altitude, speed, and route pages can be combined into one downlink request.

Each request is individually selected and filled out.

Select subsequent request pages by selecting RETURN, and selecting additional downlink pages from the ATC main menu.

When data is entered into the second request page, the SEND key changes to VERIFY.

Elements requiring revision before sending are revised on their respective request page.
