I was just wondering, what are the requirements for airports depicted on the PFD on the EFIS and NG when the ARPT switch is selected on?
I heard through the grapewine that it has to be "long enough" for a 737 to use it for any kind of landing (this would make sense to me)? Is it the provider of the database who decides which airports we have in our FMS or what? And which requirements are there to LDA, approach systems etc. for an airport to be depicted on the PFD (let alone be in the database).
Best regards
