Rockwell Collins introduces new Performance-based Navigation capabilities to its FMS-4200 on CRJ700/CRJ900/CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft

Rockwell Collins today announced that its FMS-4200 Flight Management System is certified and will be standard fit on Bombardier CRJ700/CRJ900/CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft. The announcement was made at the 36th Annual Regional Airlines Association (RAA) Convention in Nashville, Tenn.

With the latest version of the Rockwell Collins FMS-4200, operators of CRJ700/CRJ900/CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft will be able to automatically fly Performance-based Navigation procedures, including Required Navigation Performance (RNP) and RF (radius to fix) legs - a first for CRJ aircraft. This will reduce track distance, flight time and fuel consumption when compared to conventional routes.

Additional enhancements to the FMS-4200 for CRJ700/CRJ900/CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft include:

• LPV approach capability

• WAAS lateral navigation guidance and messaging

• Enablement of coupled VNAV

• Full NAV to NAV transitions

• Multiple approach indication (XYZ approaches)

• Step down fixes

• Temperature compensated barometric altitudes for use with VNAV operations

The FMS-4200 is an integral component embedded within the Pro Line 4™ avionics system for in-service and current production CRJ regional jets. The latest version of the FMS is available through a software upgrade for CRJ700 and CRJ900 aircraft.
