Reduced Vertical Separation Minima (RVSM)

Reduced Vertical Separation Minima (RVSM)

Yearly increases in air traffic of 5% leads to ever increasing traffic density as more aircraft use the same airspace. Departure slots and delays have been the result. To counteract this, aviation authorities have implemented new specific structures and procedures which together with modern altimeter systems enable more efficient use of the available air space. Our RVSM course teaches the flight crew the technical and procedural requirements legally required to ensure a safe and efficient RVSM flight. 




After the course the participant states the general RVSM regulations, minimum equipment requirements and demonstrates pre-, in- and post flight procedures for a safe and efficient flight.
