FAA launches oceanic net

The Federal Aviation Administration recently launched electronic air-to-ground communications services for aircraft crossing the Atlantic.

The New York Air Traffic Control Center began initial operations of the Multisector Oceanic Data Link System in March. It supports two-way data communications between air traffic controllers and aircraft.

The system eliminates the need for voice communications between the pilots and controllers for some issues and improves the reliability and speed of message delivery, FAA officials said.
