ACARS Update


We issued a minor update to our ACARS system just a few minutes ago, which fully supports the recent HTTPS implementation on our website. The update should be seamless and our site is now fully HTTPS compliant.

Happy new year!

Enhanced Site Security

Captains, Sorry for a little disruption on the site, we are done implementing the first part of our secure HTTPS protocol so that all communications with the server are done in a secure way. We will issue an ACARS update during this weekend in order to make it fully compatible with these changes and will continue working towards the progress of our website for you to enjoy, now in a more secure way (once everything has been implemented). You can now use https://www.sunwingsexpress.com to access the website in a secure way, this will be enforced later on. Safe flights, SWI Webmaster

Dangerous Airports Tour 2016


Our Dangerous Airports Tour 2016 is reaching the end of its life. If you still have flights to do within this tour, we encourage you to do so as quickly as you can for we are going to close this tour in January 2019.

From now on, in our next tours, we will let you know the closing date for the tour so you can always be aware of it.

We are already working on new stuff for 2019, so stay tuned!

SunACARS2 v3.0 Released


As promised earlier today, and after all the testing has been done, we finally released a major update to our ACARS system. Please read carefully:

- If you want to enable our ACARS to work perfectly with PMDG aircraft, you should go to your PMDG addons folder inside the main Prepar3D folder (for example C:Program FilesPrepar3DPMDGPMDG 737 NGX) and insert this next text in the end of the 737NGX_Options.ini file:



So that the aircraft allows reading of the events such as lights, flaps, etc. If you have more PMDG addons (747, 777, etc), you should do the same for every one of them, just changing the 737 example above to 747 or 777.

Another note:

As the ACARS now allows saving and storing of PIREPs if these cannot be sent to the server for some reason, it now REQUIRES administrative privileges and will ask for them if required. If you cannot send a PIREP at the end of the flight because your internet went down, don't worry... It will now be saved on disk and when you get back online, just run the ACARS and it will prompt you to send it then. The logs will then be deleted from disk once they're sent successfully.

We hope you enjoy this new version (no more landing lights OFF penalties because the ACARS couldn't read them) and as usual, send any bug reports to webmaster@sunwingsexpress.com

Boeing 747-8F/I Repaints


We have just released repaints for PMDG's Boeing 747-8 freighter and passenger models. These repaints are for the latest version of this model (PMDG 747V3) and will not work on previous versions. On a sidenote we can tell you that work is going on in improving our ACARS system with several updates to the landing lights detection system (don't worry that penalties are not accounted for... YET!), more flexibility with aircraft range, so that instead of preventing the pilot from flying a route that theoretically surpasses the aircraft range, only a warning will be issued and flight can proceed normally to the pilot's responsibility.

This and more tours are coming in 2019 as some work is required and time for properly testing all features.

Stay tuned and enjoy flying with us!
