To our valued pilots and directors of flight operations,

Rockwell Collins announced that Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017 (Cycle 1713 Revision A), we are reinstating the approximately 10,000 flight management system (FMS) navigation database procedures that were removed as a result of the FMS temperature compensation issues first described in our operator’s bulletin OPSB 0166-17.

We have released an updated operator’s bulletin, OPSB 0166-17R4 detailing a limitation of FMS versions 3.3.X through 4.X and the actions to which operators must immediately be aware and comply. Please note that changing “Climb to” altitudes in departures and missed approaches and the FMS temperature compensation feature are prohibited for all ground and flight operations for the affected FMS versions.

Navigation databases are compiled from official State sources by Jeppesen and Lufthansa Systems and supplied to Rockwell Collins Flight Database Services Team for the purpose of packaging a database compatible with Rockwell Collins Avionics. The navigation database is comprised of many general aviation procedures as well as many restricted or special procedures that require specific training and/or authorization to utilize. The end-user is reminded that according to RTCA/DO-200A dated September 28, 1998, section 1.4; “The ultimate responsibility of ensuring that data meets the quality for its intended application rests with the end-user of that data.”

Each cycle, every effort is made to ensure the data passed on to our customers is of the highest quality, containing the most up to date, complete and reliable information available. However, it is the end-user’s responsibility to; pre-flight their navigation database, reference appropriate NOTAMS and Flight Alerts including those from Jeppesen, Lufthansa, the FAA, Rockwell Collins and other state aviation authorities and any other applicable publications pertaining to the users flight operations from the appropriate websites or publications.

The end user has the ultimate responsibility to ensure data requirements are met and to verify the navigation data loaded in their FMS is current and valid for the intended operation. If an error, omission or inconsistency is discovered, the end user should notify Rockwell Collins so that the issue can be investigated and/or forwarded to the appropriate navigation data supplier. The correction of data content issues cannot typically be resolved until the following AIRAC cycle.
