UVflightplanner Now Offers FAA-Approved GPS RAIM Prediction Analysis

16th July 2009 - 01:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

RSS, now offers clients the option of having a flight plan calculated with a GPS RAIM (Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring) prediction analysis (including oceanic).

Universal’s GPS RAIM prediction analysis has been approved under the Federal Aviation Administration’s Advisory Circular 90-100A.

On July 1, 2009, the FAA made it mandatory to perform a pre-departure GPS RAIM for sole GPS operators filing U.S. area navigation (RNAV) routes (Q and T routes), RNAV standard terminal arrivals (RNAV STARs) and RNAV departure procedures (RNAV ODPs and RNAV SIDs).

“This is a value-added service to our clients and comes at no additional charge,” said Randy Stephens, Senior Director, Specialty Products, Universal®. “Our RAIM feature automatically computes RAIM for operators and is available for use worldwide, not just in the U.S.”

Highlighted Benefits of this new feature include:

• Easy-to-read "No Outage" / "Outage" message in the flight plan summary
• Detailed pass/fail prediction analysis that includes 15 minutes prior to and 15 minutes after (in five-minute increments) of planned departure time
• Save and print your RAIM report with your flight plan
• No additional charge users can activate this feature for any GPS-equipped aircraft on their account by contacting Universal’s Customer Care Center at (713) 378-2778 or emailing for more information.
