In this paper, we show how software defined radio can be used to decode aeronautical datalink communication such as VHF-band aircraft communication addressing and reporting system (ACARS). An academic analysis of the physical and medium access layers enables the specification of a complete discrete-time oriented receiver. The latter receiver is implemented with the help of GNU Radio and released as a free software. A flexible software architecture makes the project suitable for various applications such as teaching, integration testing, safety and security assessment.
