Service Alert 1472: Momentary Lateral Shifting Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) on the PFD and Change in FMS-Coupled AFCS Mode

PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
 Embraer Phenom 100/300 (Prodigy system) with GDU software version 13.04 and 14.02 are affected.

ISSUE:
 Pilot actions may result in a momentary lateral shift of SVT on the PFD, accompanied by a change in FMS-coupled AFCS modes.

PILOT ACTION:
 Do not perform the following actions during critical phases of flight (e.g. short final):

  • Make changes to a flight plan
  • Activate a flight plan leg or a Direct-To
  • Select OBS mode or change OBS course
  • Access the TMR/REF page

If a change in FMS-coupled AFCS mode is observed, select the desired AFCS mode.

NOTE:
Initiating a go-around or missed approach during critical phases of flight may result in a momentary lateral shift of SVT on the PFD. Initiating a go-around or missed approach will also result in the AFCS transitioning to GA mode. This AFCS transition is normal and no additional pilot action is required.
