The SMARTLANDING
EGPWS such as GPS position, heading, groundspeed and a
runway database to generate the aural advisories/cautions. Note
that GPS availability is a requirement for the operation of these

to the GPS antenna position. The SMARTLANDING
functions do not have knowledge of taxiways, ATIS & NOTAM
information, other traffic, pilot intent, ATC clearance, ground
markings and signage. Crews should be cognizant of the
prevailing ATIS and any NOTAMs. (Similarly, data on newly
constructed runways or changes to length of existing runways
may not necessarily be included in the runway database). The

any action required from the flight crew.
Note that all SMARTLANDING
a lower priority than existing EGPWS alerts, including radio
altitude call-outs.
Stabilized Approach Monitor is armed when the aircraft
climbs more than 1,450 ft AFE. Each monitoring function is
then separately enabled at different altitudes during the final
approach when the aircraft is descending more than 400 fpm
at less than 5 NM from the destination runway.
The criteria for a stabilized approach for air transport category
aircraft is typically:
• Landing Gear down
• Landing Flaps set
• Aircraft Speed within the final approach speed +10 knots /
-5 knots
• Vertical Speed less than -1,000 fpm
• Aircraft on approach profile (Glideslope and Localizer
captured)
The Stabilized Approach Monitor observes these parameters
during
the
advisories/cautions if the stabilized approach criteria are not
met. No advisory/caution is issued by Stabilized Approach
Monitor during normal approach.
The aircraft is stabilized during the final approach if the
aircraft is fully configured to land and the aircraft energy is
properly managed. If the aircraft is not configured properly at
certain gates or is flown with excessive energy, the Stabilized
Approach Monitor issues an annunciation indicating which
