1. PURPOSE AND APPLICABILITY

 

1.1 Primary Purpose. The primary purpose of this report is to specify Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) master training, checking and currency requirements applicable to flight crews operating Cessna Model 560XL series aircraft (560-5001thru 5500 (XL), 560-5501thru 6000 (XLS), and 560-6001 and on (XLS+)). This report can assist Title 14 Code of Federal Regulation (14 CFR) part 91 subpart K (91K) fractional ownership program, part 135 air carrier operators and part 142 training centers in the development and approval of the training programs by their Principal Operations Inspector (POI) and FAA Training Center Program Managers (TCPM).

 

Note:   All regulatory references within this report are found in 14 CFR, unless otherwise indicated.

 

The guidelines in this report also apply to operations inspectors, Aircrew Program Managers (APM), 14 CFR part 135 air carrier check pilot and instructors, airline transport pilots instructing in air transportation service, certificated flight and ground instructors, aircrew program designees, Training Center Evaluators (TCE), and part 61, 135, 141 and 142 training providers.

 

This report also provides information which is advisory in nature, but may be mandatory (under part 91K management specifications and part 135 operation specifications) if the designated configurations apply and if approved for that operator.

 

Provisions of this report:

 

a)     Identify Pilot "type rating" requirements assigned to the CE‑560XL,

 

b)     Describe any unique requirement applicable to initial, transition, upgrade, or recurrent training,

 

c)     Describe “Master Difference Requirements (MDR)” for flight crews requiring differences qualification for mixed-fleet-flying or transition,

 

d)     Provide examples of acceptable “Operator Difference Requirements (ODR)” tables,

 

e)     Describe acceptable training program and flight simulation training device (FSTD) characteristics when necessary to establish compliance with applicable MDR table,

 

f)     Identify checking and currency standards to be applied by FAA or operators,

 

g)     Report Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) evaluations, and

 

h)     Provide a listing of regulatory compliance status (compliance checklist) for the pertinent 14 CFR, Advisory Circulars (AC), and other operationally related criteria that was reviewed and evaluated by the Aircraft Evaluation Group (AEG).

 

1.2 This report addresses CE‑560XL series aircraft (560-5001thru 5500, 560-5501thru 6000, and 560-6001 and on) as specified in the FAA Type Certificate Data Sheet (TCDS) #A22CE.

2. PILOT "TYPE RATING" REQUIREMENTS

 

2.1 Pilot-In Command Type Rating. In accordance with the provisions of parts 1, 61, 91, 91K and 135, the specific pilot type rating assigned for the CE‑560XL (560-5001thru 5500, 560-5501thru 6000, and 560-6001 and on) is designated as "CE‑560XL".

 

2.2 Second-In-Command (SIC) Type Rating. In accordance with the provisions of § 61.55, FAA Order 8900.1 Volume 5 Chapter 2, a SIC Privileges Only type rating can be issued as "CE‑560XL" with Limitation for “CE‑560XL SIC Privileges Only”.

 

2.3 Historical type rating determination information. Previous revisions of the CE‑560XL FSB and CE‑560XLS FSB reports contained type rating determinations for those aircraft. E level differences were determined to exist between CE-500 series aircraft and CE‑560XL aircraft. Those determinations are retained in this report for historical reference in Appendix 5.

 

3. "MASTER DIFFERENCE REQUIREMENTS" (MDR)

 

3.1 Common Requirements (All CE‑560XL).

 

Indicates new/changed information.

3.1.1. Autopilot Engage Altitudes. As referenced by approved AFMs, the CE‑560XL (560-5001thru 5500, and 560-5501thru 6000) has specifically been evaluated for autopilot suitability for engagement at or above 400 feet AGL during takeoff and go-around, CE‑560XL (560-6001 and On) has specifically been evaluated for autopilot suitability for engagement at or above 300 feet AGL during takeoff and go-around. Autopilot engaged takeoff is not authorized.

 

3.1.2. Minimum Altitude for Autopilot Use/Non-Precision Approaches. The CE‑560XL (560-5001thru 5500, 560-5501thru 6000, and 560-6001 and on) has specifically been evaluated for autopilot suitability for continued use during non-precision approaches to an altitude of not less than 300 feet AGL.

 

3.1.3 Landing Minima Categories § 97.3. The CE‑560XL (560-5001thru 5500, 560-5501 thru 6000, and 560‑6001 and on) is considered Category “B” aircraft for the purposes of determining normal "straight-in” landing weather minima. For circling approaches, all CE‑560XL aircraft are considered Category “C” by Normal Operating Procedures and an approach speed (KIAS) based on a speed of VREF at the maximum certificated landing weight. If operating at a speed in excess of the upper limit of the speed range for the aircraft’s category, the minimums for the higher category must be used.

 

3.1.4. Normal "Final Landing Flap Setting". The normal "final landing flap setting" per § 91.126(c) is considered to be "Flaps 35/Land" for all CE‑560XL aircraft.

 

3.2 Master Difference Requirements.

 

3.2.1 Requirements for particular CE‑560XL Related Aircraft Combinations. Master Difference Requirements (MDRs) for related aircraft of the CE‑560XL are shown in Appendix 1. These provisions apply when differences between related aircraft exist which affect flight crew knowledge, skills, or abilities related to flight safety (e.g., Level A or greater differences as defined in AC 120-53, as amended).

 

3.2.2 MDR Footnotes. Footnotes to MDR requirements define acceptable "required means" or "alternate means" of compliance. A footnote can indicate requirements that are less restrictive than the basic designation, or more restrictive than the basic designation, depending on the significance of the differences between related aircraft.

 

4. "OPERATOR DIFFERENCE REQUIREMENTS" (ODR) TABLES

 

4.1 ODR Tables. ODR tables are developed by each individual part 91K and part 135 operator when differences exist which affect crew qualification. ODR tables are used to show an operator compliance methods. These ODR tables are provided as generic tables, and therefore may not include items that are applicable to particular operators.

 

4.2 Operator Preparation of ODR Tables. Operators flying the CE‑560XL (560-5001 thru 5500, 560-5501 thru 6000, and 560-6001 and on) aircraft must have approved ODR tables pertinent to their fleet.

 

4.3 ODR Table Coordination. ODR tables proposed by operators that are not identical or equivalent to acceptable ODR Tables published in this report must be coordinated with the FSB Chair prior to FAA approval and implementation. FSB coordination ensures consistent treatment of related CE‑560XL aircraft between various operators, and compatibility of each ODR table with MDR provisions.

 

4.4 ODR Table Distribution. Original FAA approved ODR tables not published in this report are to be retained by the operator. Copies of FAA approved ODR tables are to be retained by the Certificate Holding District Office (CHDO).

 

5. FSB SPECIFICATIONS FOR TRAINING

 

Indicates new/changed information.

5.1 General

 

5.1.1 Assumptions Regarding Airmen’s Previous Experience. The provisions of this Section apply to programs for airmen who have experience in part 91K or part 135 operations, former military, commuter or corporate pilots and multi-engine transport turbojet aircraft, including glass cockpit and FMS experience. For airmen not having this experience, additional requirements may be appropriate as determined by the POI, TCPM, FSB, and/or AFS-200/800.

 

5.1.2 Operator training differences from CE‑560XL(560-5001 thru 5500) or CE‑560XLS (560-5501 thru 6000) to CE‑560XLS+(560-6001 and on), or from CE‑560XLS+ to CE‑560XL or CE‑560XLS must meet the minimum FSB recommendation of eight hours ground and four hours system integration training. The minimum training hours required for differences from CE‑560XL or CE‑560XLS to CE‑560XLS+, are based on pilots with previous Collins Proline 21 experience. Operator programs using the minimum hours shall include a prerequisite for previous Collins Proline 21 experience as evidenced by successful completion of initial or recurrent training in a Proline 21 equipped aircraft within the preceding 24 months. Programs for differences from CE‑560XL or CE‑560XLS to CE‑560XLS+, for pilots without Collins Proline 21 experience need increased training hours in addition to minimum FSB recommendation of eight hours ground and four hours system integration training. The differences training shall be accomplished in accordance with MDR table in Appendix 1 of this Report.

 

5.1.3 Training for Seat Dependent Tasks. Accomplishment of certain tasks, procedures, or maneuvers requires training of a crewmember for a particular crew position (e.g. captain, first officer, international relief officer, check pilot, etc.). Training programs should recognize and address the necessary seat/position related tasks for the applicable crewmember. Accordingly, training programs should address seat dependent tasks or maneuvers to the extent necessary to satisfy crew qualification objectives and should be in accordance with ODR tables when applicable.

 

5.1.4 Second-In-Command Training. Flight Crews qualify to serve as SIC must accomplish certain tasks, procedures or maneuvers for the SIC crew position. Training programs should address all training elements of part 61, 91, or 135. SIC Pilot Type Rating may be issued in accordance with § 61.55, provided training tasks stipulated by this report, are also completed.

 

5.1.5 Future Air Navigation Systems (FANS)/RNP/ANP/CNS/CPDLC/ADS. Flight Crews operating aircraft equipped with FANS software should receive appropriate instruction in its general operational functions, appropriate uses for areas of operation, routes, or procedures to be flown. General training should address communications, navigation, and surveillance (CNS) functions covered by FANS, RNP, and ANP. In addition, sufficient training in use of data link communication and Automatic Dependent Surveillance (ADS) to ensure adequate knowledge, skill, and proficiency for flight crews to operate the above system(s) in typical daily operations (requiring their use) should be provided.

 

5.2 Pilots Initial, Transition and Upgrade Training

 

5.2.1 Guidance was provided in previous CE 560XL FSB report revisions for the application of training credit for CE 560XL based on previous experience with certain CE 500 series aircraft. Similar guidance was provided for CE 500 training based on CE 560XL experience. That guidance is retained in this report for historical reference in Appendix 5. Guidance provided in this report is intended to clarify previous guidance and incorporate the XLS and XLS+ aircraft.

 

5.2.2 In accordance with the following conditions, and at the discretion of Principal Operations Inspectors and Training Center Program Managers having airmen certification responsibility for the CE‑560XL, applicants for a CE‑560XL type rating, should refer to Appendix 1.

 

Indicates new/changed information.

5.2.3 Pilots Initial, Transition and Upgrade Ground Training. Initial, transition, or upgrade ground training for the CE‑560XL is accomplished as specified by §§ 61.155, 91.1101 and 135.345.

 

5.2.4 Pilots Initial, Transition and Upgrade Flight Training. Initial, transition, or upgrade flight training for the CE‑560XL is accomplished as specified by §§ 61.157, 91.1103 and 135.347.

 

5.2.5 Crewmember Emergency Training. Crewmember emergency training should be conducted for the CE‑560XL in accordance with 14 CFR and FAA Order 8900.1. The objective of emergency training for the CE‑560XL aircraft is to provide crewmembers with the necessary knowledge concerning emergency equipment, situations, and procedures, to ensure implementation of the correct actions in the event of an emergency.

 

Emergency training consists of instruction on the location, function, and operation of emergency equipment in each related aircraft of the CE‑560XL. Where emergency equipment is common, instruction may be adjusted for crewmembers qualified and current on this equipment, provided records are available which demonstrate that crewmembers meet 14 CFR and FAA Order 8900.1 requirements. For example, if the fire extinguishers are common to fire extinguishers on other aircraft in the operator's fleet, training may credited for all applicable aircraft. Conversely, for equipment that is unique to the CE‑560XL, training on the emergency equipment for each related aircraft is required.

 

Emergency training also consists of instruction in crewmember emergency assignments and procedures including crew coordination and communication, the handling of emergency or other unusual situations, and emergency performance and observation drills specific to CE‑560XL aircraft.

 

In accordance with the 14 CFR and FAA Order 8900.1, emergency training requirements refer to two types of training: "general" emergency training and "aircraft-specific" emergency training. General emergency training is instruction on those emergency items that are common to the CE‑560XL and all aircraft in the operator's fleet, e.g., instruction on fire extinguishers and firefighting procedures, if common to all aircraft. Aircraft-specific emergency training is training on those items that are specific to the CE‑560XL aircraft. An example of aircraft‑specific emergency training is instruction on the location of emergency equipment.

 

As part of an approved training program, an operator may use many methods when conducting aircraft‑specific emergency training, including classroom instruction, pictures, videotape, ground training devices, computer‑based instruction, and static aircraft training.

 

There are no specified training program hours for Crewmember Emergency Training. A chart addressed in 8900.1 provides "national norms" for the approval of the general emergency training program hours. The complexity of the different related aircraft of the CE‑560XL and the complexity of the type of operation to be conducted should be considered when approving the CE‑560XL aircraft-specific emergency training.

 

5.2.6 Areas of Emphasis. The following areas of emphasis should be addressed during ground and flight training:

5.3 Differences Training. Differences Training for CE‑560XL (560-5001 thru 5500, and 560-5501 thru 6000) base to CE‑560XL (#6001 and On) variant and Differences Training for CE‑560XL (#6001 and On) base to CE‑560XL (560-5001 thru 5500, and 560-5501 thru 6000) variant: refer to MDR and ODR Tables.

 

5.3.1 General. Unless an initial or transition program is completed for each related aircraft, differences training is necessary for each related aircraft or type, as provided in MDR and ODR tables (reference §§ 91.1103 or 135.347). Detailed generic sample ODR tables may be obtained through the Kansas City AEG. Copies are available on request. MDR and ODR tables provide guidelines for differences training requirements applicable to particular aircraft equipage.

 

a)   A Differences Training Program prerequisite is that a trainee has completed initial, upgrade, or transition training in one related aircraft and will receive differences training for the other related aircraft.

b)   When a Differences Training Program involves related aircraft having the same Pilot Type Rating, coverage of differences may be completed either coincident with each phase of an initial, upgrade, or transition training course, or following completion of that training course. The differences training must be consistent with the provisions of the approved applicable MDR/ODR Tables.

 

5.3.2 Differences Ground Training. Differences ground training is required on the topics applicable to the pertinent related aircraft and is shown by applicable ODR tables.

 

5.3.3 Differences Flight Training. Difference flight training is required in the topics and maneuvers applicable to the pertinent related aircraft that is shown by applicable ODR tables.

Indicates new/changed information.

6.2 Type Ratings

 

6.2.1 Oral Examinations. When an airman is qualifying in only one variant CE‑560XL, oral test items need only address the variant model for which the test is being conducted.

 

6.2.2 Practical Tests. Practical tests may follow standard provisions of part 61, and PTS. The satisfactory completion of a practical type rating evaluation in any variant CE‑560XL will meet the requirement for the CE‑560XL type rating. In order to operate another variant model aircraft, crewmembers operating under part 91K or part 135 are required to satisfactorily comply with the requirements of the MDR and ODR tables in Appendices 1 and 2. The same requirement should be followed by flight crewmembers operating under part 91.

 

6.2.3 Application For and Issuance of Type Ratings. Airmen completing pertinent part 61, part 91K or part 135 requirements in any variant CE‑560XL in accordance with FSB requirements described in this report, may apply to the FAA for the CE‑560XL type rating endorsement. Upon completion of required tests, and submission of an application via Integrated Airman Certification and/or Rating Application (IACRA) or FAA Form 8710-1 (Airman Certification and/or Rating Application), an authorized designee or qualified ASI may issue the necessary pilot certificate with type rating. These checks must be administered by an authorized designee, or ASI who has been qualified on the specific variant of CE‑560XL.

 

6.3 Proficiency Checks

 

6.3.1 General. Proficiency Checks are administered in accordance with part 61, part 91K or part 135. A proficiency check in any variant CE‑560XL suffices for the type, provided initial qualification, recurrent qualification and differences are conducted IAW MDR and approved ODR tables for that operator. These checks must be administered by an authorized check pilot or qualified ASI who has been qualified on the specific variant of CE‑560XL. Satisfactory completion of a proficiency check may be substituted for recurrent flight training as permitted in part 91K or part 135.

 

6.3.2 Proficiency Check for Mixed Fleet Flying. Proficiency Checks for Mixed Fleet Flying should alternate checks each 6 months for PIC’s and annually for SIC’s between CE‑560XL (560-5001thru 5500) or CE‑560XLS (560-5501thru 6000) and CE‑560XLS+ (560-6001 and on) aircraft. Aircraft differences must be addressed IAW the MDR and approved ODR tables for that operator.

 

7. FSB SPECIFICATIONS FOR RECENCY OF EXPERIENCE

 

7.1 Recency of Experience. Each aircraft type is addressed separately unless otherwise approved. Recency of experience must include operation and programming of the FMS and use of AFCS/Autopilot for departure, enroute, arrival and approaches.

 

7.1.1 Takeoff and landing credit. Takeoff and landing performed in any variant CE‑560XL, (560-5001thru 5500, 560-5501thru 6000, and 560-6001 and on), are equivalent and may be credited interchangeably.

 

7.2 Currency for Mixed Fleet Flying. These are shown in MDR/ODR tables.

 

7.2.1 Level B Currency. When MDR/ODR specifies Level B Currency, currency is maintained by operating the variant aircraft within the previous 180 days. Currency may be re-established by review of all ODR Level B items identified for the pertinent variant aircraft to include Bulletins, Placards, Memos, Limitation, Operating Procedures and Manual Updates prior to operating the related aircraft. A proficiency check in the variant aircraft or by completing applicable differences training requirements for the variant airplane is also an acceptable means to re-establish currency.

 

Indicates new/changed information.

7.2.2 Level C Currency. When MDR/ODR specifies Level C Currency, currency is maintained by operating/flying the variant aircraft through a complete flight cycle (takeoff, departure, arrival, approach and landing) including an instrument approach procedure within the previous 90 days. Currency may be reestablished by operating the variant aircraft, Full Flight Simulator (FFS), or Level 6 Flight Training Device (FTD) with a qualified PIC for a minimum of one complete flight cycle, completing an approved differences course, completing a type rating practical test, completing any of the following checks in the variant aircraft, or Flight Simulation Training Device (FSTD) by an authorized Check Pilot, authorized TCE, Designated Examiner, a person qualified by the Administrator or a qualified ASI: §§ 61.57(c)(d), 61.58, 91.1065, 91.1069, 135.293, 135.297, and 135.299.

 

7.2.3 When MDR/ODR specifies Level D Currency, currency is maintained by operating the variant aircraft through 3 complete flight cycles (takeoff, departure, arrival, approach and landing) within the previous 90 days. Currency may be reestablished by operating the variant aircraft or Full Flight Simulator (FFS) with a qualified PIC for a minimum of three complete flight cycles, completing an approved differences course, completing a type rating practical test, or completing any of the following checks in the variant aircraft or FFS, administered by an authorized Check Pilot, authorized TCE, Designated Examiner, a person qualified by the Administrator or a qualified ASI: §§ 61.57(c)(d), 61.58, 91.1065, 91.1069, 135.293, 135.297, and 135.299.

 

7.2.4 Instrument proficiency check.

The instrument proficiency check must consist of the areas of operation and instrument tasks required in the instrument rating practical test standards in the applicable configuration of CE‑560XL (560-5001thru 5500, 560-5501thru 6000, and 560-6001 and on).

 

8. AIRCRAFT REGULATORY COMPLIANCE CHECKLIST

 

8.1 Compliance Checklist (see Appendix 6.

 

Compliance checklists are provided as an aid to FAA Certificate Holding District Offices (CHDO) in identifying those specific rules or policies for which compliance has already been demonstrated to the FAA for aircraft having a particular aircraft type, and variant. The compliance checklist also notes rules or policies not demonstrated to the FSB, which must be demonstrated to CHDOs by operators. The Regulatory compliance checklist is located in Appendix 6.

 

8.2 Discussion of Specific Compliance Checklist Items. Operational approval information is provided as an aid to CHDOs for identifying specific regulatory compliance.

 

8.2.1 Forward Observer Seat. Cessna 560XL aircraft are not equipped with a dedicated forward observer seat, and Cessna does not offer a dedicated forward observer seat as an option. Due to the availability of various passenger configurations, the determination of suitability for use of a forward passenger seat for use in conducting enroute inspections will need to be determined by the CHDO or Inspector conducting enroute inspections.

 

8.2.2 Emergency Evacuation. Part 135 Operators must meet the requirements of § 135.123 and part 91K operators must meet the requirements of § 91.1083.

 

8.2.3 CE‑560XL Emergency Exits. CE‑560XL (560-5001thru 5500, 560-5501thru 6000, and 560-6001 and on) aircraft are equipped with, and required to carry a water barrier during all flights per an equivalent level of safety. The water barrier must also be accessible during all flights. The passenger briefing and passenger briefing cards must include instructions on water barrier location and use. The water barrier is required per flight manual procedures to be placed in the cabin door opening, in the event of a water landing. The water barrier is part of an equivalent level of safety in lieu of meeting § 25.807 requirements for ditching emergency exits for passengers. Flight crews must receive training on water barrier procedures as required by §§ 91.1083 and 135.331.

 

Indicates new/changed information.

8.2.4 Ditching Demonstration. While no specific requirement for a ditching demonstration exists under parts 91/91K/135, operators/crewmembers must comply with the requirements of §§ 91.1083 and 135.331, and must be familiar with the general handling characteristics and procedures outlined in the aircraft flight manual.

 

8.2.5 Proving and Validation Tests. Proving and validation tests in accordance with §§ 91.1041 and 135.145 are appropriate in accordance with FAA Order 8900.1, Volume 3, Chapter 29, when the CE‑560XL is new to a particular operator. When an operator is currently operating any CE‑560XL (560-5001 thru 5500, 560-5501 thru 6000, or 560-6001 and on) aircraft and adds another variant aircraft in the same kind of operation, proving tests are not required.

 

8.2.6 Electronic Flight Bag. CE‑560XL (560-5001 thru 5500, and 560-5501 thru 6000) may be equipped with Honeywell Primus 1000 Charts and/or MFD Uplink Graphical Weather.

Citation Loading Calculator (CLCalc)

Citation Performance Calculator (CPCalc)

Citation Electronic Operating Manual (EOM)

MMEL O&M Procedures Guide

Operating Manual (Reference Only)

Flight Manual (Reference Only)

Pilots Checklist (Reference Only)

 

The following is specific information on CESSNAV components.

 

CLCalc is a computer based software program designed to allow users to calculate and graph loading Weight and Balance of their aircraft. The Limitations Section of FAA approved Airplane Flight Manual for the CE‑560XL aircraft indicates the airplane must be operated in accordance with the approved loading schedule and refers to Weight and Balance Data Sheet and FAA Approved Weight and Balance Manual Model CE‑560XL. The FAA Approved Weight and Balance Manual indicates CLCalc is approved for use as an alternative source to the FAA Approved Weight and Balance Manual to determine weight and balance data.

 

CPCalc is a computer based software program which if used in accordance with Cessna Aircraft Company CPCalc AFMS provides an alternate source to the takeoff and landing data presented in Section IV of the basic FAA approved AFM. The program also provides advisory (not FAA approved) Section VII Wet Landing performance information. For the program to be approved for use, the Airplane Flight Manual Supplement must be issued for the specific airplane flight manual. Operators using CPCalc must adhere to CPCalc AFMS limitations and procedures.

 

Indicates new/changed information.

EOM is a computer based software program which provides advisory (not FAA approved) information for planning purposes.

 

8.2.10 Optional Garmin GMX-200. CE‑560XL (560-5001thru 5500, and 560-5501thru 6000) can be equipped with single or dual Garmin GMX-200 Multi-Function Display. If a GMX-200 is installed, electronic charts are an option available. The FSB has not conducted an operation suitability evaluation of the electronic chart functions to determine if they meet the requirements of AC 120-76 (Guidelines for the Certification, Airworthiness, and Operational Approval of Electronic Flight Bag Computing Devices). Operators and FAA Principals should contact the Kansas City Aircraft Evaluation Group to seek guidance on use of the Garmin GMX-200.

 

8.2.11 Passenger briefing cards. The CHDO will need to verify passenger briefing cards meet requirements of §§ 91.1035 and 135.117, and match the interior configuration and emergency equipment installed. If the aircraft was delivered by Cessna with rafts and/or life preservers installed, passenger briefing cards normally include information on raft and/or life preserver location and use.

 

9. FSB SPECIFICATIONS FOR FLIGHT SIMULATION TRAINING DEVICES (FSTD)

 

9.1 Flight Simulation Training Device Characteristics. Flight simulation training device (FSTD) characteristics are specified by part 60. The acceptability of differences between FSTDs and aircraft must be determined for each approved training program. When variants are flown in mixed fleets, the combination of FSTDs used to satisfy MDR and ODR provisions should address specific variants flown by that operator. The acceptability of differences between FSTDs, and aircraft operated must be addressed by the POI.

 

9.2 FSTD Approval. Requests for FSTD approval to be utilized during approved training should be made to the POI/TCPM. The POI/TCPM may approve these FSTDs for that operator if their characteristics clearly meet the established FAA criteria and have been qualified by the National Simulator Program (NSP). Where FSTDs do not clearly satisfy a given level, the POI/TCPM should request advice from the FSB Chair, NSP or AFS-200.

 

10. APPLICATION OF FSB REPORT

 

10.1 This report becomes effective when approved by the FAA (see Cover Sheet or Record of Revision page).

 

10.2 Training, checking and currency for the CE‑560XL aircraft must be conducted in accordance with all provisions of this report.

 

10.3 All FAA Approved Training Programs must incorporate the latest FAA Approved AFM Procedures, AFM checklists, manufacturer’s recommendations and bulletins, training maneuvers and provisions of this report.

 

11. ALTERNATE MEANS OF COMPLIANCE

 

11.1 Approval Level and Approval Criteria. Alternate means of compliance to the requirements of this report must be approved by the Kansas City AEG, FSB Chair. If alternate means of compliance is sought, operators must show that the proposed alternate means provides an equivalent level of safety to the provisions of AC 120-53 (as amended) and this FSB report. Analysis, demonstrations, proof of concept testing, differences documentation, or other evidence may be required.

 

11.2 Equivalent Safety. In the event alternate means of compliance is sought, training program hour reductions, FSTD approval, may be significantly limited and reporting requirements may be increased to assure equivalent safety. FAA will generally not consider relief through alternate means of compliance unless sufficient lead time has been planned by an operator to allow for any necessary testing and evaluation.

 

Indicates new/changed information.

11.3 Interim Programs. In the event unforeseen circumstances make it impossible for an operator to comply with MDR provisions, the operator may seek interim program approval rather than a permanent, alternate compliance method. Financial arrangements, scheduling adjustments, and similar reasons are not considered to be "unforeseen circumstances" for the purposes of this provision. Interim program approvals must be approved by the FSB Chair.

1. Purpose and Applicability

 

The following is provided for the benefit of FAA Principal Inspectors and aircraft operators for their use in determining the acceptance of EFB applications. As described in AC 120-76, Guidelines for the Certification, Airworthiness, and Operational Approval of Electronic Flight Bags Computing Devices, the Collins IFIS is certified Class 3 EFB Hardware and Type C applications. Class 3 hardware is installed equipment and requires AIR involvement and AEG involvement. Applications are classified as Type C due to the interactiveness of the Electronic Charts with the aircraft. The charts can be manipulated (i.e. zoomed, scrolled, etc.) as Type B, but are classified Type C because aircraft present position is provided on the installed display on the airport depictions and charts. Aircraft present position as incorporated into Electronic Charts has been certified as a situational awareness tool and is not intended to alleviate the crew from carrying primary navigational reference materials.

 

This Appendix is applicable for operational approval of the IFIS-5000 system as an Electronic Flight Bag, 560XL #6001 and On (XLS+) aircraft.

 

2. EFB Description

 

IFIS-5000 SYSTEM

The integrated Flight information System (IFIS) provides supplemental information, such as weather and electronic charts, in the cockpit via Adaptive Flight Displays (AFD). The IFIS functions are intended to provide situational awareness only and do not provide alerts or warnings. The three major functions provided by the IFIS‑5000 are; support for navigational charts, enhanced map overlays, and graphical weather images. The charts function allows the viewing of selected Jeppesen aeronautical charts. The Enhanced Maps function is split into an application and a server that together provide map overlays of geopolitical, airspace, airway data and visual navigation information. The Graphical Weather function option provides various weather images, such as NEXRAD. The Graphical Weather System is operator selected as either XM or Universal.

 

The Collins IFIS-5000 System consists of the following major equipment items:

 

QTY     Description

1or2*    File Server Unit FSU-5010

2           Cursor Control Panel CCP-3000

2           Data Link Communications System CMU-4000 (ACARS/Universal only)

2           Control Display Unit CDU

2           Adaptive Flight Display AFD-3010E

* Single or Dual FSU-5010 installations will not support EFB operational authorization as sole source of aeronautical information. Since chart information cannot be displayed while on emergency power, or in the event of certain avionics failures. A suitable secondary source is required to be available to the flight crew.

 

FSU-5010

The File Server Unit (FSU-5010) is a dedicated LRU with three major functions that provides the processing platform for the Integrated Flight Information Systems: Solid-state memory; a processor capable of running one or more applications, and high-speed Ethernet communications with other avionics. The FSU provides the mass data storage within its Mass Storage hardware, necessary for up-linked graphical weather, enhanced map overlays and electronic charts displayed on the MFD. Ethernet bussing provides the high-speed connection to the MFD. The high speed Ethernet connection minimizes the time taken to respond to a display request from the pilot, while providing a level of integrity to the data being transmitted.

 

CCP 3000

The Cursor Control Panel (CCP 3000) is mounted in the flight deck to provide additional pilot controls necessary for the chart function. These functions include:

•            Selection and de-selection of the chart display on the MFD

•            Zooming a specific area of a chart to provide better readability

•            Panning a chart to view different areas of the chart while zoomed

•            Rotation of charts between landscape and portrait orientation

•            Selection of a specific chart from the thousands contained in the database

 

IFIS-5000 FUNCTIONS

Electronic Charts, Graphical Weather and Enhanced Map Overlay functions each require an active subscription. Collins Integrated Flight Information System IFIS-5000 Operator’s Guide must be immediately available to the flight crew.

 

Electronic Charts

The Electronic Aeronautical Charts and Approach Plates are intended to provide ease of chart access and improved situational awareness by allowing the display of aircraft present position on Geo referenced charts.

 

Indicates new/changed information.

The Electronic Charts feature will typically provide information to include (but is not necessary restricted to): the display of charts for arrival, approach, departure, airport and NOTAMS. Access to the Electronic Charts format is via a CCP chart button. Integration with the Collins FMS flight plan data provides easy access to all charts pertinent to the flight plan. Pilot entered station IDs are allowed. The Electronic Chart function provides aircraft position on all geo-referenced charts.

 

The FMS transmits flight plan information (origin airport, destination airport, destination arrival, destination approach, and alternate airport) used by the electronic chart function. Charts associated with each flight plan element are listed on the MFD’s chart selection menu. A single action selects any of these charts for immediate display.

 

IFIS-5000 electronic chart feature includes:

•            Approach Charts

•            Terminal Area Arrival / Departure Charts

•            Airport Diagrams

•            Chart Notices to Airmen (NOTAMs)

 

If airport diagrams are referenced to geographical coordinates, an aircraft symbol is superimposed on the airport diagram to enhance position awareness. Approach charts referenced to geographical coordinates also have an aircraft symbol superimposed on the chart to enhance situational awareness.

 

Enhanced Map Overlays

The File Server Unit (FSU) provides several map databases that contain data that can be overlaid on the MFD PPOS & Plan Maps. These databases include:

•            Geographic Data (lakes, rivers, and political boundaries)

•            Airways (“Victor” airways and “jet” routes)

•            Airspace depictions

 

The Enhanced Map Application does not serve as the primary means in the cockpit for positional information. Enhanced Map overlays are advisory and not to be used for navigation. Navigation data related to Approach is provided by the Charts application.

 

Graphical Weather Function

The IFIS-5000 system will support several graphical weather functions but the weather radar is the primary means for aiding “tactical” short-range navigation decisions, while the strategic planning is performed using the longer-range graphical weather data. Graphical Weather may not be substituted for weather radar to provide thunderstorm detection and avoidance information in compliance with FAR requirements.

 

The Graphical Weather function provides weather information to pilots to enhance their awareness of the flight situation to provide a strategic meteorological overview. The intention is to improve operation safety and efficiency. The graphical weather feature provides the display of stored graphical weather images. The pilot is able to select from a menu of available graphical weather images that are stored in the FSU. Stored images are down-linked through the XM or Universal CMU receiver to the FSU. The data received is broadcast from a ground weather service provider. The graphical information can be panned and zoomed using the Cursor Control Panel Joystick and Zoom buttons. The information provided is:

•            NEXRAD Radar images

•            Echo Tops (Altitude, speed and direction of the tops of major storm cells)

•            Graphical and textual METAR

•            Graphical and textual Significant Meteorological advisory (SIGMET)

•            Textual Airman’s Meteorological advisory (AIRMET)

•            Textual Terminal Aerodrome Forecast (TAF)

 

3. EFB Mounting

 

EFB applications are displayed on either Multi-function Display and have been certified as part of the type design.

 

4. EFB Display and Reflectivity

 

The EFB has been evaluated in both low light and full sunlight. The display is readable under the full range of lighting without distraction.

 

5. EFB Procedures and Database Revisions

 

The database affectivity format that is displayed on the MFD is designed to allow the flight crew (or maintenance personnel) to ascertain the currency of the installed databases. The databases listed on this page include:

•            FMS Database (28 day update cycle)

•            Charts (14 day update cycle)

•            Airspace (28 day update cycle)

•            Geographic (update on user demand)

•            Political (update on user demand)

•            Graphical Weather (update on user demand)

 

The database affectivity format provides information regarding the begin date, end date, and currency status of each of the installed databases. When databases are selected on the page, the format also provides detail information regarding the database regions of coverage. When an installed database is out of date, the flight crew is provided a CHECK DATBASE STATUS annunciation (only when on the ground) in the Lower Format Window. When this annunciation is displayed, the operator can select the database affectivity page and a NOT CURRENT annunciation (in yellow) is displayed in the status column.

 

6. FSB Specifications for Training

 

As a minimum the crew should use the FMS to flight plan and the EFB electronic chart functions to pull up the airport depiction charts, SID’s, Arrival Procedures, and approach charts. Pilots should master the graphic weather depiction functions to obtain METARS and TAF’s for origin, destination, and alternate airports

 

7. FSB Specification for Checking

 

Recommended tasks include demonstrating competency in using the FMS to integrate use of the electronic chart functions to display departures, arrivals, and approaches, and utilizing the graphical weather text functions.

 

8. FSB Specification for Currency

 

Currency level is variable as set in MDR table. If level C currency is indicated by MDR table, recommended tasks include demonstrating competency in using the FMS to integrate use of the electronic chart functions to display departures, arrivals, and approaches, and utilizing the graphical weather text functions.

 

9. Environmental Testing (HIRF, EMI)

 

Intensity Radiated Fields and Indirect Effects of Lightning for the IFIS-5000 system were tested per High Intensity Radiated Fields (HIRF) and Indirect Effects of Lightning Test Procedure. The system meets Certification Basis requirements and special conditions for High Intensity Radiated Fields and Indirect Effects of Lightning.

 

10. Continued Airworthiness

 

Instructions for Continued Airworthiness for the IFIS-5000 system are addressed in accordance with aircraft certification requirements and available through normal ICA distribution processes.
