Wanted to revisit this question after reading some additional material, not that the answer is important, it just seems that in the US, the G and R equipment codes seem redundant…..

Code Name Definition Possible Required Subfield Entry N NIL No COM/NAV approach aid equipment for the route to be flown is carried, or the equipment is unserviceable. S Standard Equipment Standard COM/NAV/approach aid equipment for the route to be flown is carried and serviceable. If the letter S is used, standard equipment is considered to be VHF RTF,VOR and ILS unless another combination is File Size: KB.

This aircraft would file /G on a domestic flight plan, and DGOV/C on an ICAO flight plan (the ICAO flight plan may also include R and an appropriate PBN code for the GPS capability).

Aircraft #2 has a VHF Nav/Com with ILS capability, and a Mode C transponder. This aircraft would file /U on a domestic flight plan, and SV/C on an ICAO flight plan. Aug 12, If you’re not ADS-B out equipped, you’ll only enter one code–most likely code “C” for a Mode C transponder or code “S” for a Mode S transponder.

Survival Equipment– The last step is to add is any survival equipment on board, including life jackets. When providing aircraft type on a flight plan, pilots/operators are required to include information about the on-board, certified equipment using an identifier code as a suffix to the equipment type. Please visit to see a more comprehensive list. Effective September 1, at UTC, when filing an FAA Flight Plan (FAA Form ), operators will use a new set of aircraft equipment suffixes to indicate Advanced RNAV and RVSM capabilities.

Either “/J” “/K” “/L” or a newly defined “/Q” will be filed to. The two fields are separated by a single forward slash. Multiple codes may be specified in 10a and in 10b.

The most common codes for 10a are: S – Standard equipment (VOR, ILS, and VHF Com) G – GPS (enroute and terminal) D – DME F – ADF R – PBN equipped (PBN codes must be specified in field 18 after PBN/) The most common 10b codes are. When filing an IFR flight plan, identify the. equipment capability by adding a suffix, preceded by. a slant, to the AIRCRAFT TYPE, as shown in. TBL 5−1−3, Aircraft Suffixes. NOTE − 1. ATC issues clearances based on filed suffixes. Pilots should determine the appropriate suffix based upon.
