Flight Management Computer System
- Aerospace Standard
Published December 16, 2002 by SAE International in United States
The purpose of this document is to describe the recommendations of SAE Committee S-7 for a Flight Management Computer System (FMCS) capable of providing the functions and displays listed below to permit completion of a desired flight plan in an energy efficient and/or cost effective manner while meeting the requirements of Air Traffic Control. The recommendations of this document apply to transport aircraft and describe the operational objectives of the FMCS and related controls and displays.

The SAE S-7 Committee was formed to fulfill a need for the air transport industry to monitor itself with respect to uniformity of cockpit design for air transport aircraft.Standardization of the flight deck is becoming increasingly important to both operators and manufacturers. The objective is to design for the operational efficiencies necessary to maintain a competitive and viable air transportation industry. This must be accomplished while maintaining or improving the existing levels of operating efficiencies and safety. The S-7 Committees is committed to serving this purpose. This is an international committee of members representing major aircraft manufacturers, airlines from United States, Europe, and the Far East, as well as equipment designers, manufacturers, regulatory authorities, and other interested parties.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
