I have updated the VAM files so that it is now compatible with new versions of the databases.

You can read the full article here (spanish):

I hope you like it.

Great work. Let us all enliven the VAM. Really wish some new features if could be added to ACARS.

Though it would be just wonderful if Mr. Alejandro takes a decision to refurbish the ACARS and VAM system, still for the time being VAM is very much usable as is proven by few VA sites as this.
This is a very much running site and as we speak pilots are flying there.

I am sure there are plenty more.


From my experience all you need to do is run the FSUIPC7 as admin and keep it running at background. Then just run MSFS2020 and load ACARS. It detected in my case.

That screen shows your landing speed as 71 knots and you were flying an A320?  So you stalled on landing then or is that speed incorrect?

Also, the word TAXI is red.  Was it green at any point (meaning did it properly detect you turning the taxi light on and off)?

Yes, I stalled, got to a really slow speed at touchdown, this I can remember. For lights, I have not yet tested extensively. But, at current FSUIPC7 state, it's almost unusable because of induced stutter. The is a deal breaker.

Yes, did a short flight. Worked well. The essential parameters were logged alright.

NOTE : Once the flight is loaded when FSUIPC7 open, the micro stutter is extremely visible. FSUIPC7 needs definitely bug fixes.

Hi All,

I am pleased to announce that with the new FSUIPC7 released the SIMACARS is getting connected. It's recognizing the loaded airports and planes.
That is a great news. I am yet to test anything else. I am about to make a charter flight to see what happens.

Me and our team worked day and night to learn the VAM Architecture, DB structure, Php classes and functions, we discovered what was already in, we explored further, made several changes to codes to accomodate our VA requirements. Now the VA VAeroCargo is fully functional.

We don't know why would the original developer/architect not be active here at all. Our team has greatly appreciated his contribution. SIMACARS is the only ACARS it is integrated with unfortunately.

We really need to keep the beacon glowing. And, then MSFS2020 arrived. We tried to integrate with new SIM via SIMACARS. But it didn't work. We really need to have either an update from original architect to further make it compatible with FS2020 or eventually it would sadly die away.

We who have put hundreds of hours of effort, would perish without the support of new SIM Platform. The VAs will be deprecated gradually. People will move towards MSFS2020 eventually.

Requesting the original architect to listen to our urge. Or at least provide the source code so that we programmers can build on top of it. It's a hope !!

I would like to thank everyone here who at some point of time helped me build our Cargo VA.  We could not reach at this stage without your active help.

My sincere and HUGE ❤️ thanks to Mr Alejandro Garcia for providing the aviation enthusiasts and Flight SIM fans, a wonderful backbone tool to expand idea and imagination. The flexibility and buildng techniques of VAM has ensured its expansibility.

Thanks again. If anyone of you would like to visit the new born VA VAeroCargo, please explore


Support for SIM ACARS / Can I get a different HomePage than index.php
« on: June 27, 2020, 03:57:32 PM »
Hi All,
I was building a VA site on basis of VAM system. I was wondering if I could by default land to a different page than index.php. Is there a configuration place where I can define the landing page/home page.

Thanks !!

I don't know how to thank you all enough. After the clue regarding vam_live_acars and vam_live_flights tables, I checked each and every line of the .phps and found that strangely my Live Flights were not updating because the table 'vam_live_flights' id field was not defined to have AUTO_INCREMENT !!!

That's why the query to insert into this table was failing. I added the AUTO_INCREMENT and voila it worked lovely. Thanks so much.

Just for reference I'm giving the right sql to create the 'vam_live_flights' table, just in case someone gets stuck with similar issue.

Correct table vam_live_flights
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `vam_live_flights` (
  `gvauser_id` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `flight_id` varchar(200) NOT NULL,
  `departure` varchar(4) NOT NULL,
  `arrival` varchar(4) NOT NULL,
  `ias` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `heading` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `gs` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `altitude` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `fuel` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `fuel_used` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `latitude` double NOT NULL,
  `longitude` double NOT NULL,
  `time_passed` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `perc_completed` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `time_flag` timestamp NULL DEFAULT NULL,
  `oat` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `wind_deg` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `wind_knots` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `flight_status` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
  `last_update` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)

  `plane_type` VARCHAR(4) NULL;
  `pending_nm` INT NULL;

ALTER TABLE `vam_live_flights` ADD `network` VARCHAR(50) NULL DEFAULT NULL;

Thanks a lot everyone for providing correct clue. :)

Warm Regards

Support for SIM ACARS / Live flights not showing

Hi All,

I'm stuck at Live Flights. All other features are working in VAM for my VA. Only the Live flights tables not getting populated during an ongoing flight. I'm not sure what's going on.

Kindly help. I have tried looking up for a solution in the forum, however has not been able to resolve it yet. Though the PIREPS are getting properly submitted via SIM ACARS.

Attached the tables screenshot.

Please use MapBox =>


Currently I'm developing a VA using VAM, and I observed same/similar issue.

Then after searching everywhere, I found a clue that the flight log box in the SIMAcars, would show errors if it's facing any while submitting flight data. For me it was pointing to few database error.
I fixed those and my pirep started getting into the db system, in vampirep table.

However, still facing another issue, that even if the data gets inserted in vampireps table, still the loading icon in ACARS keeps on rotating and gives me error that pirep coukd not be submitted, whereas it infact got submitted successfully. Not sure why, but still no solution.

But, yes, since the pireps are getting submitted properly, it's not major worry, just an annoyance.

Could you please check your db quries, particularly in receivevampirep.php.


I found a solution after a lot of tries. At last I changed the PHP version to 7.1.3 from previous 5.6.30 and it worked !!!

Not sure how is it working with a version change, but I can now connect to my VA (DEV mode - EasyPHP Devserver).

Now there's another issue coming while submitting the completed flight from SIM ACARS 1.4.0. Everytime I try to submit the flight I am getting "This flight is already reported to the web system". ANd then another message dialog box "During data transmission some data inconsistency was found........". I noticed some discussion happened in the forum on this issue. But, I tried all of those , could not get it working.

I'll keep trying , and in mean time if someone kindly think of assisting me, please comment.

Thanks you so much !

NOTE : My manual PIREP is just working nicely.
