Navigation Databases

Navigation Database subscription service is offered to provide current, accurate navigation information for your Flight Management System (FMS). Subscriptions are available in worldwide and regional coverage areas to meet the requirements of your flight operations. A special helicopter database is also available for rotorcraft operators.

Navigation Database subscription service for all FMS Software Control Number (SCN) operators is available directly from Universal Avionics. Updates for your subscription areas are distributed on a 28-day cycle and are available to either be shipped directly to your location, or conveniently downloaded from UniNet 14-days prior to the effective date. Each update completely refreshes the entire database, including those waypoints used within your stored routes and pilot-defined procedures.

Navigation Database Subscriptions & Ordering

Navigation database subscription service is available in worldwide and regional coverage areas to meet the requirements of your flight operations. It provides current, accurate navigation information for your FMS. Database contents include elements such as SIDs, STARs, airways and more.

The annual subscription service includes 13 updates released on a 28-day cycle. Each update refreshes the entire database, including waypoints used within your stored routes and pilot-defined procedures. The navigation information is only valid for the 28 day period for which it was produced. New updates are released prior to the effective date of each cycle update.

The download service is provided for free via UniNet, which offers superior reliability and integrity for every download. USB Memory Stick shipment is available for certain FMS Software Control Numbers (SCN), for an additional fee. Please contract us for more information about this option.

FMS navigation databases are produced and provided in accordance with the highest quality standards as specified in DO-200A/ED-76. Universal Avionics holds an FAA Type 2 Letter of Acceptance (LOA) for processing and producing the FMS navigation database.

How do I find my SCN?
