Honeywell issue a pilot handbook. It also depends on the software version and Aircraft fit.

NZ7.03 is current on the E-jets but a new load is due in December.

Which aeroplane are you talking about? E-jet or other?

Current load that we have is 21.4 ...
But as you mentioned "...new load is due in December".
I believe it will be 22...so my question was if somebody already have it installed AND .pdf would be rely nice to see.

Thanks for attention. :ok:

Its load 23 and there is a new FMS pilots guide available now. It's part of the required documents in the airplane library so when you get 23 you will get the new FMS Guide. The new FMS software version is NZ7.1, the previous version is NZ7.03 (nav ident page :ok:). It includes 21 and 23 which is nice and I'm just reviewing it now. I can't distribute it though so please don't ask.

Wish our Chief Pilot read this.... :}

unfortunately never seen it ..for any load..

I'v just got access to Tech Pub...but under "NZ7.1" appeared :

"Sorry, no matches found. Please try again."

Any Pub. No. or something that helps to locate load FMS pilots guide Load 23???

So far i seen only :

"Primus Epic Integrated Avionics System for the Embraer 170/175/190/195 and Lineage 1000 Load 21 and Load 23 Pilot's Guide"

and how to get it in .pdf and not in CD???

Thanks for any help :ok:

- Pilot's Operating Manual P/N A28-1146-179 or other approved manual must be available to the flight crew.
- The Pilot's Manual must match the FMS software version installed in the airplane.

This is straight from the AFM S2-05 page 3.

The latest version is revision 5 which is dated October 09 but wasn't released until the software update in December.

We have a commercial agreement with honeywell for CD rom versions. They require online activation. We used to get printed copies at about $100 a copy for orders of around 500 so you can see that you won't get this for free except on your airplanes.

I guess my company use "..or other approved manual must be available to the flight crew."

and we have in it revision 5 Jun30, 2009.

As I mentioned abow we never have a hard copy Flight Management System (FMS) Pilot's Guide. just a chapter in Vol 2 with 70 pgs. ....really few infor.

Well any way I see that it is no way to see it for mi............. :{

At list if you can shear is there some good changes??
- Improved VNAV
- LOC capture
- Performance stuff
- Abeam points
- Distance problem (That still there, even in L21 been promised to resolve)
- Duplication of Way points and so on....... :bored:
and other Pilot interesting

Thanks a lot for your time

Anybody had a chance to play around with Load 23? Just curious what the major changes are. I'm lead to believe it's a significant upgrade affecting a lot of systems.
