RVSM Approvals and Monitoring
RVSM airspace is any airspace or route between flight level (FL) 290 and FL 410 inclusive where aircraft are separated vertically by 1,000 feet. Updated information material for operators, pilots, certificate holders, and/or program managers conducting RVSM operations under the provisions of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 91, can be found in Advisory Circular 91-85B: Authorization of Aircraft and Operators for Flight in Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) Airspace.

Report Notes: Approval Status: TRUE means that NAARMO has complete records that you have met the conditions of approval. FALSE indicates a problem with your approval documentation, or an outdated height monitoring. The Altimetry System Error (ASE) compliance of an airframe is determined by using multiple ASE samples and evaluation of composite performance.
