Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums

Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums
Operations in RVSM airspace have become a non-event. We regularly climb through FL290 without a thought that we are entering RVSM airspace. Although it has become commonplace, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) still mandates training on the subject. The RVSM online module is designed for pilots flying aircraft that have either a Letter of Authorization (LOA) or Ops Specs approval to operate in RVSM airspace. The module also includes a downloadable RVSM Reference card.

 

This module meets the FAA RVSM pilot training requirements published in Advisory Circular (AC) 91-85, Authorization of Aircraft and Operators for Flight in Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum Airspace, Appendix 4 and mandated by Ops Spec B046 paragraph c. Appendix G to Part 91 also requires "initial and recurring pilot training" for Part 135 operators on RVSM. Your training program may also contain a specialty curriculum for RVSM. During our customization process, we ensure we meet any operator-specific requirements that you have outlined in your training program.
This module meets the FAA RVSM pilot training requirements published in AC 91-85, Authorization of Aircraft and Operators for Flight in Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum Airspace, Appendix 4, and mandated by your Letter of Authorization to operate in RVSM airspace. The module complies with the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) training requirement for "equipment installed on the aircraft" and "additional training that is required to ensure a safe operation" defined in Chapter 8 of IS-BAO. No specific time interval is required in the IS-BAO standard for RVSM.
