Avionics upgrade

Boeing Flight
Management System

Maximize operational efficiency

The new Boeing Flight Management System (BFMS) is currently available as a retrofit and will be standard on in-line production 737 MAX airplanes and as a retrofit on the 737 MAX and 737 NG.

As part of the BFMS solution, an all-new flight management computer (FMC) for the 737 family was designed from the ground up with our airline partners and leveraging Boeing's expertise as a flight systems integrator. We are incorporating preferred commercial features to outfit all 737 MAX and 737 NG aircraft with a flight management system that will support evolving and increasingly demanding flight management requirements. 

The BFMS optimizes fuel efficiency, improves connectivity, and increases profitability. The BFMS integrates new FMC hardware and software that delivers new and improved features that matter most to your airline.


  • 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 reliability

    The 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 features

    The 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.
