Does anyone know if the ERJ and CRJ are RNP capable? ...for apporaches and RF legs (Radius to Fix). I know rnav arrivals and departures are no problem but what about RNP?

Just curious.

CRJ is RNP capable. RNP value can be specified if not preloaded by entering the value on the FMS Prog Page.

4nm oceanic / remote
2nm enroute
1nm terminal
.3nm approach

CRJ with the Collins 4200 avionics and single FMS is NOT RNP certified. Can't speak to other configurations.

Yeah I think a single fms is a killer on rnp.

The AFM should state what the Certified RNP level is. Just because the FMS is capable doesn't mean the whole avionics package is certified to that level or that you have operational approval.

Actually it is. It has to do with operations specifics and downloads for the database.

Exactly. The aircraft's actual AFM has a lot more detail that the airlines leave out of their operating manuals. There are about 4 different databases that spell out what you can and can't do when it comes to RNP.
