Future Air Navigation Systems – FANS-1/A+

Currently hailed as the global standard in flight navigation and communication systems, FANS was conceptualized in the 1980s. By the 1990s, the first-generation FANS-1 navigation systems were made operational in Boeing 747-400s. Today, FANS-1/A+ can help pilots and ATCs identify the safest, and most economical flight paths using state-of-the-art satellite technology.

FANS-1/A+: Widely Used Aviation Technology

Today, FANS-1/A+ is the most widely used navigation and communication technology for aircraft. Almost all passenger and cargo airplanes in the world uses FANS-1/A+ to communicate with Ground Control. FANS-1/A+ is traditionally coupled with CPDLC and SATCOM systems.

FANS-1/A+ Will Now Cover Continental Airspaces

Soon aircrafts will be given preferential flight clearance with the CPDLC system. The FAA says, "Best equipped, best served." The new EUROCONTROL Link 2000+ and ATN B1 versions allow seamless VHF communication from USA across NAT Tracks and continental Europe. The FANS-1/A+ ancillary services also add new features for the pilot and ATC to determine the safest and shortest flight routes.

The Advantage of FANS Technology

FANS technology has greatly improved air navigation and flight safety compared to a RADAR-based system. Any RADAR station has a very limited range. It was very difficult to navigate vast oceanic stretches without an aircraft that could read the airspace accurately. This was why the Future Air Navigation papers and technology were needed and developed. It was decided that each aircraft needs to be independently able to map their surrounding airspace and avoid collision or bad weather using satellite based data and on-board sensors.

FANS-1/A+ gives the ATC automated information based on satellite data. VHF Radio communication was the standard way for pilots to communicate with the ATC before FANS technology. Now, FANS-1/A+ allows pilots and the ATC can communicate better. They can verify the readings from the sensors at two points of control. Thus, the new system is an overall improvement on the comprehensive way we manage flight navigation, communication, and safety.

What is the Latest FANS-1/A+ Update?

FANS-1/A+ is primarily an oceanic system, though it is gradually being adopted over land routes as well. The ATN B1 update is the latest version of FANS which will be the mandate over European airspace by February, 2020. Since a lot of our clients fly on NAT Track routes, BAM is among the few aviation companies in Flordia who have successfully implemented and tested ATN B1 updates.

What is the Basic Mandatory FANS Update for my Plane?

If you fly internationally, we suggest you install the Universal Avionics Unilink UL-801 CMU software that complies with the new European Mandate for February 2020. It is compatible with EUROCONTROL Link 2000+ and ATN B1 to provide seamless VHF communications from US across Trans-Atlantic routes, as well as continental Europe. Our service package also includes the AFMS (Airplane Flight Manual Supplement) associated with the new Link 2000+, ATN B1 mandate.


FANS Ancillary Services

Apart from the dual commlinks and CPDLC messages for positioning, FANS-1/A+ also has certain ancillary services. The Aerodrome Flight Information Service or AFIS helps the pilot identify nearby air traffic. While ACARS (Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System) allows the pilot and the ATC to communicate via automated messages regarding important factors like flight plans, weather information, and equipment health.

Boca Aircraft Maintenance, LLC has the certifications, engineering expertise, and the workshop facilities to provide you flawless aviation updates and installations within the shortest timelines.
