RNAV LPV Approach Capabilities?

Greetings,

Just curious if the A300-600/A310 have the ability to fly an LPV RNAV approach, or are they limited to LNAV/VNAV only guidance on final?

It's an early generation of aircraft and I think the LPV standard came relatively recently.

Did a quick search of the forums and found nothing.

Hi,

Both A300/310 modelled in the sim currently can only do basic LNAV/VNAV coupledĀ RNAV approaches. It is also not capable of flying any RF legs.
As such they're not LPV capable.

That being said, IRL UPS A306 with the Honeywell EPIC avionics suite are capable of LPV approaches. So that may be possible in future builds šŸ˜‰

Thanks!

LOL.Ā  Now there will be an untold number of posts along these lines:

"When is the update with the Honeywell EPIC avionics suite coming out as was promised?"

Ā 

So you mean to say that the avionics as provided on the legacy A300-600 were not capable of executing an LPV approach IRL? That's good to know rather than this being some development shortcut!

I think the LPV RNAV standard came much later IIRC...
