ACARS stands for Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System, which is a technical protocol used in aviation to send and receive messages from an aircraft to an aviation ground station. As an ACARS expert, you can help your client (who may not be familiar with this technology) with developing, maintaining and troubleshooting their aviation communication infrastructure. You could also review their existing system for any optimization opportunities and develop plans for new messaging technologies to help them scale for future operations.
When interviewing and selecting an ACARS professional, you will want to ask detailed questions about their experience in the industry. Ask what types of tasks they have accomplished before and how they can contribute to best support your needs. Also inquire about references that the ACARS professional has acquired in the past, as well as ensure they have the proper certification required by their relevant governing bodies. The going rate for hiring an ACARS consultant is usually between $35-$65 USD per hour depending on experience level, type of project and duration of engagement.
