In respect to this, what is RVSM airspace?
Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) is defined as the reduction of vertical space between aircraft from 2,000 to 1,000 feet at flight levels from 29,000 feet up to 41,000 feet. RVSM was implemented as a means to increase airspace capacity and access to more fuel-efficient flight levels.
Beside above, what equipment is needed for RVSM airspace? The following equipment must be operating normally at entry into RVSM airspace: Two primary altitude measurement systems. One automatic altitude control system. One altitude alerting device.
Similarly, you may ask, what are the RVSM altitudes?
RVSM reduces the vertical separation of aircraft from 2,000 feet to 1,000 feet when they're flying at altitudes from FL290 (29,000 feet) to FL410 (41,000 feet).
Where does RVSM airspace begin?
Within RVSM airspace, air traffic control (ATC) separates aircraft by a minimum of 1,000 feet vertically between flight level (FL) 290 and FL 410 inclusive. RVSM airspace is special qualification airspace; the operator and the aircraft used by the operator must be approved by the Administrator.
