Rockwell Collins' FMS-4200 flight management system is certified and will be standard fit on Bombardier CRJ700/CRJ900/CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft.

Rockwell Collins' latest version of the FMS-4200 will enable operators of CRJ700/CRJ900/CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft to fly performance-based navigation procedures automatically, including required navigation performance 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, said Rockwell Collins.

In addition, FMS-4200 will include, LPV approach capability, wide area augmentation system (WAAS) lateral navigation guidance and messaging, enablement of coupled vertical navigation (VNAV), full NAV to NAV transitions, multiple approach indication, step down fixes and 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.
