Primus Epic Flight Management Systems

Primus Epic Flight Management Systems

The industry’s first system to simultaneously display traffic, terrain, airspace, airways, airports and navigation aids.

Proven, certified, installed and flying in the world’s most advanced and sophisticated global business jets, the Primus Epic FMS, with the addition of INAV integrated navigation data, delivers the industry’s first FMS to simultaneously display traffic in addition to terrain, airspace, airways, airports and navigation aids to the Primus Epic integrated cockpit. This allows for access to more airports, increased safety, reduced crew workload and meets the changing regulatory compliance and airspace requirements.

Improving upon the first generation Primus Epic FMS, the Next Generation flight management system (NGFMS) raises the bar for technical innovation. The NGFMS is also optimized for future air traffic management (ATM) functionality specifically for global business jets.
