Effective September 1, operators are required to use a new set of flight plan aircraft equipment suffixes to indicate advanced navigation capabilities. Pilots must use J, K, L or a newly defined Q to specify advanced Rnav and RVSM capabilities. They should continue to use a W to indicate RVSM capability only. The revised list also contains significant changes to the definitions of E and F. An FAA noticeannouncing the revisions also provides instructions for use of the suffixes on both FAA and ICAO flight plans, although a complete table of the new codes in the notice is for use only in FAA Flight Plan Form 7233-1. The notice can be accessed at gen05003.htm.
