  • Page 14: Basic Functions

    Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide BASIC FUNCTIONS: MODE 1 Mode 1 provides alerts for excessive descent rates with respect to altitude AGL and is active for all phases of flight. Excessive This mode has inner and outer alert boundaries as illustrated Descent in the diagram and graph below.
  • Page 15 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide MODE 1 If a valid ILS Glideslope front course is received and the aircraft is above the glideslope centerline, the outer (sinkrate) Continued boundary is adjusted to desensitize the sinkrate alerting. This is to prevent unwanted alerts when the aircraft is safely Glideslope capturing the glideslope (or repositioning to the centerline)
  • Page 16: Mode 2a

    Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide MODE 2A Mode 2A is active during climbout, cruise, and initial approach (flaps not in the landing configuration and the aircraft not on glideslope centerline).

  • Page 17 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide MODE 2A The graph below shows how the upper boundary of the Mode 2 alert envelope varies as a function of the aircraft speed. As Continued airspeed increases from 220 knots to 310 knots, the boundary expands to provide increased alert times at higher airspeeds.
  • Page 18: Mode 2b

    Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide MODE 2B Mode 2B provides a desensitized alerting envelope to permit normal landing approach maneuvers close to terrain without unwanted alerts. Mode 2B is automatically selected with flaps in the landing configuration (landing flaps or flap over-ride selected) or when making an ILS approach with Glideslope and Localizer deviation less than 2 dots.
  • Page 19 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide MODE 2B During an approach, if the aircraft penetrates the Mode 2B envelope with either the gear or flaps not in the landing Continued configuration, the aural message “TERRAIN, TERRAIN” is generated and the EGPWS caution lights illuminate. If the aircraft continues to penetrate the envelope, the EGPWS warning lights illuminate and the aural message “PULL UP”...
  • Page 20: Mode 4a

    Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide MODE 3 The aural message is enunciated twice for each 20% degradation in altitude. Upon establishing a positive rate of Continued climb, the EGPWS caution lights extinguish and the aural alert will cease. If the Aural Declutter feature is disabled, the warning is enunciated continuously until positive climb is established.
  • Page 21: Mode 4b

    Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide MODE 4A Below 1000 feet AGL and above 190 knots airspeed, the Mode 4A aural alert is “TOO LOW TERRAIN”. This alert Continued is dependent on aircraft speed such that the alert threshold is ramped between 500 feet at 190 knots to 1000 feet at 250 knots.

  • Page 23 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide MODE 4C Mode 4C is based on an EGPWS computed Minimum Terrain Clearance (MTC) floor that increases with Radio Altitude. It Continued is active after takeoff when the gear or flaps are not in the landing configuration.
  • Page 24 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide MODE 5 Mode 5 provides two levels of alerting for when the aircraft descends below glideslope, resulting in activation of EGPWS Excessive caution lights and aural messages. Deviation The first level alert occurs when below 1000 feet Radio Below Altitude and the aircraft is 1.3 dots or greater below the beam.
  • Page 25 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide MODE 5 • The upper altitude limit for the alert is modulated with vertical speed. For descent rates above 500 FPM, the upper Continued limit is set to the normal 1000 feet AGL. For descent rates lower than 500 FPM, the upper limit is desensitized (reduced) to a minimum of 500 feet AGL.

The EGPWS provides several Continued excessive bank angle envelopes supporting Air Transport, Business, or Military aircraft types (only Air Transport and Bank Angle Business aircraft types are addressed below).
  • Page 29 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide MODE 6 Three envelopes are defined for Air Transport aircraft. These are identified as Basic Bank Angle, Bank Angle Option 1, and Air Transport Bank Angle Option 2 advisories. Bank Angle The Air Transport Basic Bank Angle limits are similar to the Business Aircraft Bank Angle limits except above 150 feet the bank limit remains at 40 as shown below.
  • Page 30 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide MODE 7 Mode 7 is designed to provide alerts if the aircraft encounters windshear. Two alerting envelopes provide either a Windshear Windshear Caution alert or a Windshear Warning alert each Alerting with distinctive aural and visual indications to the flight crew. EGPWS windshear is provided for certain (not all) aircraft types and is a function of certain additionally required input signals and enabled internal detection algorithms.
  • Page 31: Mode 7 - Windshear Alerting

    Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide MODE 7 Windshear Warning results in illumination of red Windshear Warning lights and an aural siren followed by the message Continued “WINDSHEAR, WINDSHEAR, WINDSHEAR”.

The volume of RAAS advisories is controlled by the EGPWS - the RAAS message volume level is based on the expected flight operation for each advisory.
  • Page 100: Section 6 Operational Availability

    Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide SECTION 6 Operational RAAS is operationally available anytime the EGPWS is powered and the following conditions are met: Availability • The software for the RAAS functions have been loaded and enabled into an EGPWS (with a minimum of software version -218-218 (or later) and Terrain Database 435).
  • Page 101 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide Take-off Flap Configuration Monitor is enabled but the “Flap Monitor INOP” function is inoperative. Annunciated on ground during Level 1 Self-Test. RAAS status can also be displayed on the Terrain Display. This is active only when the aircraft is on the ground.

    Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide SECTION 7 Frequently Q. How do I know that the RAAS is enabled? Asked A. Perform an EGPWS self-test or select the Terrain Display Questions followed by a change in the displayed range (to a higher or lower range).
  • Page 103 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide Frequently Q. How do I know what units are being used for the RAAS distance related advisories? Asked Questions A. This information is provided during the EGPWS self-test audio message or on the RAAS status message on the Continued terrain display.

The Altimeter Monitor uses existing altitude sources and the Honeywell EGPWS Terrain Database to provide aural and visual annunciations as described below. The Altimeter Monitor continuously monitors the existing altitude inputs to the EGPWS and alerts the crew if an error in the altitude is detected.

    Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide SECTION 2 The SMARTLANDING functions use aircraft inputs from the EGPWS such as GPS position, heading, groundspeed and a System runway database to generate the aural advisories/cautions. Note Operation that GPS availability is a requirement for the operation of these Description SMARTLANDING functions.

  • Page 112 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide Stabilized By default, the aural message is generated at the EGPWS Warning volume, but the audio level may be adjusted to a Approach different level using the RCD. Monitor In addition to the aural annunciations provided, visual text Continued annunciations can also be overlaid on the terrain display for a period of time when the monitor condition is entered.
  • Page 113 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide Landing The Landing Flaps monitor provides the flight crew with awareness of possible unstabilized approach due to flaps not Flaps in landing configuration. This function, if enabled, provides a Monitor “Flaps (pause) Flaps” callout if the landing flaps are not set at 950ft AFE (typical upper Flap gate).
  • Page 114 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide Excessive When a circling approach is flown, the aircraft speed remains high on the downwind leg. Therefore, Excessive Speed Speed Monitor is not enabled until 600 ft AFE (typical gate) unless Monitor the aircraft is fully configured to land, which indicates the Continued aircraft is committed to land.
  • Page 115 Mark V and Mark VII EGPWS Pilot’s Guide Altimeter The Altimeter Monitor function provides the flight crew with two advisories that inform of improper altimeter setting.
