Navigation Database (NDB)
This database includes navigation data required for airline operation over defined route structures. The database includes waypoints, terminal and en route navaids, airport data, airway data, Standard Instrument Departure routes (SIDs), Standard Terminal Arrival Routes (STARs) and transitions as well as ”tailored” airline data such as company routes defined by a specific customer for a selected geographic area.
Navigation Databases for the GE Aviation FMS are currently available from three data suppliers. Click Here to view contact information for these data suppliers.

Loadable Defaults Definition Tool
The Loadable Defaults Definition Tool allows Boeing 737 operators to define certain performance parameters. These definitions are saved in a Loadable Defaults Database (LDDB) which is loaded to the FMS.
- Parameter Examples
- Transition Altitudes
- Climb/Cruise/Descent Modes and Speeds
- Climb Rates
- Quiet Climb Parameters
- Performance Modes
- Engine Parameters, etc
Licensing and use of the LDDT is free of charge. Contact Us to purchase an LDDB.
Adaptable Datalink Definition Tool
The Adaptable Datalink Definition Tool allows Boeing 737 operators to define messages that airline flight controllers on the ground can use to send and receive messages to and from the FMS via Datalink. These definitions are saved in the Adaptable Datalink Database (ADDB) which is loaded to the FMS.
Licensing and use of the ADDT is free of charge. Contact Us to purchase an ADDB.
