XACARS failing after sending pirep

#1

Post by Lauri Uusitalo » Mon Mar 16, 2020 7:32

After ending the flight and sending the pirep, XACARS shows a window "#0 sent succesfully, YES or NO" or something like that. If I press either one X-PLane freezes. Of course the flight has ended but I have to kill X-plane using task manager. Or I can choose not to press either one, but just close X-plane normally.

Just a question, is this normal for XACARS?

I don't think that it is normal behavior. Is it still doing this?

Last couple of flights I have not dared to press either YES or NO. So I have just quit the XP.

XACARS has couple of choices when you have finished the flight which baffles me. It shows View Pirep and Load Pirep. I have always chosen View and from there Send Pirep. I wonder what the Load would do? Same as Send in the next screen? Why different terms if same?

After clicking view pirep it gives you the option to send or save if you decide to save the pirep it will create a file which you can then load and submit at a later time.
