Navigation Databases


I see a procedure in the database that I don’t have a standard published chart for. Why is this?

When entering your destination in the flight plan (via MENU / ARRIVE), operators might notice a procedure for which there is no standard published chart. There are two reasons this can occur:

1) In the U.S., it is an FAA designated “Special Procedure,” or in Canada, it is a NAV CANADA-designated Restricted Canada Air Pilot “RCAP,”

2) It is a Private Approach designed by a company or individual to a certain location. Both of these types of procedures are not publicly available, but are included in Universal Avionics Navigation Database.  These procedures may be flown only if the aircraft operator has been issued the chart and has authorization.

The published chart will indicate “(Special)” at the top, as the graphic below illustrates:
