  • Page 2: Overview, Fault Detection And Exclusion (fde)

    The following sections provide an overview of the WFDE Prediction Program and guidelines for when it should be used. Section 1.2 provides a comprehensive set of guidelines for when a WFDE prediction is required that is applicable to any installation of a Garmin WAAS enabled unit. Section 1.3 provides specific guidance for GTN 6XX/7XX installations.

  • Page 3: Determining When A Wfde Prediction Is Required

    A WFDE Prediction is required for the following instances (see also Table 1): • For all Garmin WAAS enabled units (regardless of the GPS software version or antenna model): an FDE prediction is required for operations where the route requires Class II Navigation (e.g. Oceanic/Remote operation) and GPS is to be the primary source of navigation per FAA AC 20-138A Appendix 1.

  • Page 4: Determining When A Wfde Prediction Is Required For Gtn Products

    WFDE PREDICTION PROgRAM INSTRuCTIONS * Approved refers to antennas listed in the applicable Installation Manual (Table 2) that allow the Garmin WAAS enabled unit with GPS software v3.XX or later to meet the TSO-C145a/C146a or TSO-C145c/C146c requirements without requiring the operational limitations specified in the applicable Installation Manual. Unapproved refers to antennas listed in the...

    This option should be selected when the installed GPS software version is 3.XX or later and the installed antenna is one of the Garmin approved antennas that result in a fully compliant WAAS system capable of being operated without limitation. See the installation manual for your Garmin system for the list of approved compliant antennas.

    NOTE: The maximum allowed outage times for Oceanic flights vary according to the specific route. The pilot must determine the proper allowed outage time to be used for the prediction, based upon the route that is being flown.
