In -210-210 and later versions, the look-ahead alerting
algorithms are improved at higher airspeeds (about 300 knots
Look Ahead
or greater). The look-ahead distance is designed to provide a
60-second warning alert up to 8 nm look-ahead (as opposed to
30-seconds or up to 4 nm). With version -218-218 and later,
the look-ahead distance is increased by 12.5%, and the
allowed terrain clearance height is increased for descents at
high speeds to improve alerting times.
The specific aural message provided is established during the
initial installation of the EGPWS as a function of whether or
not the terrain and obstacles features are enabled and the
selected audio menu (via program pin selection).
Refer to an applicable AFM or EGPWS AFMS for specific

When a compatible Weather Radar, EFIS, or other display is
available and enabled, the EGPWS Terrain Alerting and
Display (TAD) feature provides an image of the surrounding
and Display
terrain represented in various colors and intensities.
There are two types of TAD displays depending on the
options selected. The original type provides a terrain image
only when the aircraft is 2000 feet or less above the terrain. A
characteristics to provide a higher degree of terrain awareness
independent of the aircraft's altitude (available for selected
display types in version -206-206 with additional displays
added in later versions). In either case, terrain and obstacles
(if enabled) forward of the aircraft are displayed. Obstacles
are presented on the cockpit display as terrain, employing the
same display-coloring scheme. TAD, Peaks and Obstacle
functions are enabled by EGPWS program pin selection.
Note: With respect to Non-Peaks or Peaks display, terrain and
or obstacle presentation is always based on (and scaled for)
the geographic area available for display. Consequently,
terrain and/or obstacles outside of the selected display range
and defined display sweep do not have any effect on the
displayed image.
The Non-Peaks display provides a graphical plan-view image
of the surrounding terrain as varying density patterns of green,
yellow, and red as illustrated in the following graphics. The
selected display range is also indicated on the display, and an
indication that TAD is active is either indicated on the display
(i.e., "TERR") or by an adjacent indicator.
