3 Reasons to Upgrade Your FMS

Aug 15, 2018
Stacy Honda, Marketing Manager

Have you been affected by FMS Navigation Database software 601.X/701.X – 604.X/704.X? Upgrade today to gain back Middle East approaches and more. Here are three reasons why an upgrade may make sense for you now:

  1. Load a Worldwide Navigation Database (or regional database of your choice): A larger memory and faster processor of the SBAS-FMS allows operators to load worldwide database, providing greater coverage areas and access to more airports and runways.
  2. Fly WAAS/SBAS approaches (there are thousands of them): No operational approvals required. The SBAS-FMS qualifies as a dual sensor SBAS receiver for primary means navigation, meaning you can fly worldwide SBAS approaches: WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS and GAGAN right out of the gate.
  3. Get trade-in credit for your old FMS: That’s right! Get up to $16,000 (USD) credit towards your new FMS just by sending your old one back to UA.
