The FAA has granted supplement type certification for the retrofitting of Innovative Solutions & Support’s (IS&S) flight management system on the 737-300, -400 and-500.

IS&S claims that the new avionics unit is the first retrofitted navigation system to integrate RNP/RF (required navigational performance/radius to fix), localiser performance with vertical guidance (LPV) and wide area augmentation system/GPS capabilities in readiness for NextGen air traffic control systems.

IS&S said the cockpit upgrade will provide the 737 classic aircraft with navigational capabilities and performance equivalent to the newest production aircraft.
