Increased speed and capacity
The all-new modern architecture and computing hardware of the BFMC translates to increased processing speed up to 10x faster than previous flight management systems. A larger capacity can easily accommodate worldwide navigation databases and allow space for the future growth of new features and system updates.
Proven reliabilityThe BFMS is designed to meet the high-reliability expectations our customers depend on and built to the highest quality standards. Tested and validated with customer input and real-world data, the BFMS assures that day-to-day operations are predictable and reliable. In addition to more reliable performance, the BFMS has increased mean time between failure (MTBF) statistics compared to other competitive solutions.
Comprehensive basic featuresThe BFMS delivers value with decreased fuel consumption, improved situational awareness, and reduced pilot workload and maintenance costs. In addition to the legacy Flight Management Computer functionality, Boeing has also incorporated 16 new features and 30 improved features included as basic functionality.
Fuel-saving optional features
Get the most out of your BFMS with six new cost-saving features that improve flight planning, navigation, and performance. Reduce fuel consumption and carbon emission with the Optimized Flight Efficiency, and Fuel Flow Factor and Drag Factor Uplink features that provides more accurate fuel predictions.
Support and Services
Full-flight simulator and training device upgrade
