Following after the footsteps of a 1997 North Atlantic implementation plan, a special ICAO working group, chaired by a US Federal Aviation Administration member, assisted the region in 2002 in 'safely' halving required vertical separations between airways from 2,000 to 1,000 feet (RVSM) along six multi-level routes.
(5.) The United States adopted RVSM (reduced vertical separation minimum) on January 20, 2005, to reduce the minimum vertical separation to 1,000 feet between aircraft equipped with traffic alert radar and flying at higher altitudes.
Examples include RNP (Required Navigation Performance), TFM (Traffic Flow Management), WGS-84 (World Geodetic System), and RVSM (Reduced Vertical Separation Minima).
The new Reduced Vertical Separation Minima (RVSM)doubled the number of aircraft able to fly in the busy cruising air lanes between 29,000 and 41,000 feet.
Late last year, the communications ministry adopted a system of reduce vertical separation minimal (RVSM) or a distance of 1,000 feet vertical between aircraft.
These improvements reflect the initial benefits of RVSM implementation and other accompanying measures taken by European ANSPs (Air Navigation Service Providers) and the CFMU (Central Flow Management Unit).
The fleet's flight-deck systems will be upgraded to meet near-term European civil air requirements for reduced vertical-separation minimum (RVSM).
On an eastbound leg cruising at the ragged tops of dissipating thunderstorms we didn't want to fool with (our demo had the optional Garmin GWX70 weather radar), a climb into the low 30s seemed like a good idea, but the SF50--which has the Cirrus-inspired Garmin G3000 avionics suite--isn't RVSM certified.
Since the ICAO form is already required for flights utilizing performance based navigation (PBN), flying in RVSM airspace, utilizing ADS-B services, and flights outside the U.S., everybody else might as well share the pain.
Under the deal, CSSI will provide domestic and global RVSM assistance, performance-based navigation support, international separation standards monitoring and ATC-system analysis as it relates to NextGen.
