New Approaches and Navigation Database Offering Available

Over the past several years Honeywell has been adding approaches into new and existing databases that fully utilize the benefits of business aircraft navigation and display systems.  These have included both RNP AR approaches and FMS Guided Visual procedures. While we will continue to add procedures that are valuable to our customers, we are also expanding the offering to include procedures and databases that do not require an RNP AR LOA.

The New Approaches

Honeywell will have the following instrument approaches available to operators with eligible aircraft:

Airport Approach Minimums
*Hailey/Sun Valley (KSUN)  RNAV (GPS) P RWY 31 DH 260’ – ¾ SM
*Telluride (KTEX) RNAV (GPS) N RWY 09 DH 433’ – 1 ¼ SM
*Eagle/Vail (KEGE) RNAV (GPS) N RWY 25 DH 427’ – ½ SM
Medford (KMFR) RNAV (GPS) M RWY 32 DH 200’ – ¾ SM
Bishop (KBIH) RNAV (GPS) M RWY 30 DH 275’ – 1 SM
Bishop (KBIH) RNAV (GPS) M RWY 12 DH 250’ – 1 SM
Gunnison (KGUC) RNAV (GPS) M RWY 06 DH 250’ – ¾ SM
Palm Springs (KPSP) RNAV (GPS) N RWY 13R DH 275’ – 1 SM
Steamboat Springs (KSBS) RNAV (GPS) M RWY 25 DH 275’ – 1 SM
Ketchikan (PAKT) RNAV (GPS) N RWY 11 DH 200’ – RVR18
Ketchikan (PAKT) RNAV (GPS) N RWY 29 DH 250' – RVR40
Petersburg (PAPG) RNAV (GPS) P RWY 23 DH 250’ – 1 SM
Sitka (PASI) RNAV (GPS) P RWY 11 DH 260’ – ¾ SM
Juneau (PAJN) RNAV (GPS) Q RWY 8 DH 755' – RVR55

* Available now

These are FAA-approved special approaches that provide significant benefit in weather minima, promote stabilized approaches, and reduce pilot workload; particularly into challenging airports that lack instrument approaches or straight-in minimums.

The New Databases

Until now, these special approaches have been limited to Honeywell’s RNP databases. The new procedures listed above will be included in the RNP database for those customers who currently subscribe, however Honeywell is also making them available to non-RNP customers in our new “Advanced Nav” database to operators flying eligible aircraft.  The Advanced Nav database will include the procedures above plus Honeywell’s FMS Guided Visual procedures. 

Aircraft Eligibility for the “Advanced Nav” Database

To be eligible for the Advanced Nav database, the Airplane Flight Manual must have a statement that the aircraft is certified for RNP AR or Advanced RNP (A-RNP) operations.  Operators need not have an RNP LOA, however these approaches must be listed on LOA C081.

As noted earlier, customers currently subscribed to Honeywell’s RNP navigation database are automatically approved for these approaches and will have access to the procedures if there is not currently an RNP AR approach with lower minimums available already.  The approaches must be listed on LOA C081.
