Larry, I'm not sure that any *approaches* are designated specifically as
FMS (Flight Management System), even though both precision (ILS) and non-
precision approaches might be *flown* using FMS (but I could certainly be
wrong about this).

However, there definitely *are* designated FMS arrivals and departures,
whose use *require* FMS - and often special crew certification as well.
For an example of the former, see the Transport Canada white paper at:
