most recent RAAS runway database. Further details of the

Alternatively contact Honeywell for further assistance. The
crew can verify the RAAS runway database in use for their
installation by viewing the terrain display test pattern during a
Go/No Go self-test.
RAAS operational availability is integrated into the existing
EGPWS fault monitoring and self-test functions. Consistent
with approved EGPWS self-test design, the loss of RAAS
functions is indicated on-ground only during a self-test. There
is no automatic annunciation of the loss of RAAS
functionality. RAAS status can also be displayed on the
terrain display. This is active only when the aircraft is on the
ground. RAAS Inoperative, Inhibit, and Not available
conditions are shown immediately on the display. For other
status messages see page 91. The procedure requires the flight
crew to select the terrain display followed by a change in the
displayed range (to a higher or lower range). RAAS status is
annunciated for two sweeps of the terrain display. This
feature is available on all aircraft, but is primarily intended
for those aircraft where the flight crew does not perform a
self-test. The various self-test messages are presented later in
the "Operational Availability" section.
