Spirit Aeronautics is now able to perform the v6.1 software upgrade for Honeywell FMZ-2000 flight management systems in Cessna Citation Xs.January 19, 2022, 11:35 AMAvionics solutions company Spirit Aeronautics announced that it can now perform the v6.1 software upgrade for Honeywell FMZ-2000 flight management systems (FMS) in Cessna Citation Xs. Spirit Aeronautics is the first shop to offer this upgrade for the Citation X outside of the aircraft's OEM service center network. Last January, Honeywell began an end-of-life program for software versions prior to v6.1. “The end-of-life actions will not interrupt navigation database subscription service,” Honeywell said. “However, operators may experience price increases. Operators should plan to upgrade to FMS 6.1, or later, software as soon as feasible.” Columbus, Ohio-based Spirit Aeronautics said it can provide all needed engineering, technical services, and FAA certifications to support flight departments, MROs, and operators for the v6.1 upgrade, which allows operators to maintain FMS navigation database updates. The newer software version also permits operators to add optional features such as LPV, FANS 1/A, and required navigation performance (RNP) “as needed based on the aircraft's mission.” The company is offering the v6.1 upgrade at a “significantly discounted” price as a kit or as a completed project by its technical team.
