Cessna Will Perform Installation
Cessna has released the final Service Bulletins for the new
Runway Awareness and Advisory System (RAAS). Cessna's Citation
Service Center network will perform the RAAS installation and
associated certification for all Citation Bravos (model 550),
Citation Encores (model 560), Citation Excels (model 560XL), and
Citation Xs (model 750). Cessna is among the industry's first to
offer customers this important new safety system.
The RAAS service bulletin provides improved situational
awareness to help lower the probability of runway incursions by
providing timely aural advisories to the flight crew during taxi,
takeoff, final approach, landing and rollout. Using GPS data, RAAS
issues advisories based on aircraft position when compared to
airport locations stored in the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning
System (EGPWS) runway database. RAAS is a PCMCIA card that
activates additional features in the existing Mark V and VII EGPWS
computer 219-219 software.
The Cessna RAAS Service Bulletin features factory engineering
designed to integrate seamlessly with each Citation's system. It
offers unmatched post-installation documentation and support.
Cessna's worldwide Citation Service Center network is ready to
provide post-installation RAAS service at both Cessna owned and
authorized centers and parts availability through Citation Parts
Distribution, the largest supplier of Citation OEM certified parts
in the world.
