Navigation Data

FTS uses databases from a combination of government and private contractors, and merges them for the Flight Management System (FMS) data that we provide. Our navigation data provides en-route and terminal GPS navigation and updates on the same 28 day schedule as the AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) cycle.

According to the Aeronautical Information Manual, AIM 1-1-19b3(b) Database Currency (1) In many receivers, an up-datable database is used for navigation fixes, airports and instrument procedures. These databases must be maintained to the current update for IFR operations in the aircraft.

For the highest fidelity in your flight simulation experience, FTS's world wide navigation database provides this same data that the FAA mandates for IFR flight in the USA. Outside of the USA limitations exist, please contact FTS specialists for details by clicking here.
