Introduction
This Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin (SAIB) advises registered owners and operators of
the transmission of incorrect information from the Honeywell NZ-2000 and FMZ-2000/IC-615/IC-
800/IC-1080 Primus Epic Flight Management System (FMS) software having the part numbers
(P/Ns) identified below:

Background
During an RNAV approach, an airplane programmed with NZ-2000 FMS software (version 5.2) flew
the WATTS THREE ARRIVAL (RNAV) Standard Terminal Arrival Route (STAR). A different
runway was selected in the FMS during the STAR, and resulted in the FMS navigating the airplane
toward the initial STAR waypoint instead of the next sequential STAR waypoint. As a result of this
incident, Honeywell International Inc. issued Service Information Letter, D200908000055, dated
October 15, 2009, to provide operators with guidelines for flight plan modifications made on the
ARRIVAL page, including a destination runway change. At this time, the airworthiness concern is
not an unsafe condition that would warrant airworthiness directive (AD) action under Title 14 of the
Code of Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR) part 39.
Recommendations
The FAA recommends that all owners and operators of the airplanes listed above ensure their flight
crews are familiar with the procedures outlined in Honeywell Service Information Letter,
D200908000055, dated October 15, 2009.
