1. PARAGRAPH NUMBER AND TITLE: 6-2-1. FLIGHT PLAN RECORDING

2. BACKGROUND: Since the introduction of ICAO flight plan filing in the NAS, a translation issue has been identified in the HOST/ERAM processing of those flight plans.  ICAO flight plan format requires multiple codes be used to describe individual navigation capabilities.  Occasionally, when these flight plans are processed by HOST or ERAM, the NAS equipment suffix displayed to the controller for an  aircraft is /R, /Q, /Y, or /C. For these suffixes the aircraft may or may not be GNSS capable.
