Honeywell, Spirit Aeronautics to provide Citation X 6.1 upgrade

Spirit Aeronautics and Honeywell Aerospace have teamed up to provide 6.1 software upgrade for Flight Management Systems in all Cessna Citation X aircraft. This will be the first partnership to enable the 6.1 software upgrade to be performed outside of the aircraft's OEM Service Center network.At its Columbus, Ohio facility, Spirit Aeronautics will be able to provide all engineering, technical services, and FAA certifications to support flight departments, MROs, and operators for the 6.1 upgrade.Honeywell announced it was sunsetting support of its FMS pre-6.1 software versions as of 2021.This upgrade will allow operators to maintain Navigation database updates for their FMS systems. It also holds the path for LPV, FANS 1/A, and Required Navigation Performance as the operator chooses to select each when needed based on the aircraft's mission."This partnership allows us to support Citation X operators with a much-needed update of the existing FMZ 2000 Flight Management system at a price that makes sense," said Rick Ochs, President Spirit Aeronautics.
