NAARMO maintains a database of RVSM airworthiness and operational approval status for section 3 and section 9 approvals.

Prior to September of 2018, an Operator was required to make application for a specific authorization to the FAA for an OpSpec, MSpec or LOA when seeking RVSM Authority under the provisions of section 3 of part 91 appendix G, RVSM Authorization. This option is still available for those who cannot take advantage of the new rule.

Operators and pilots seeking to operate in RVSM airspace under section 9 (Aircraft equipped with ADS-B Out) to appendix G of part 91 are not required to apply for specific authorizations. The operator should refer to AC 91-85B, for guidance on operating under the new provisions.

The operator must:

  • determine the aircraft is RVSM-compliant;
  • ensure the aircraft is equipped with qualified ADS-B Out systems;
  • operate in RVSM airspace where the FAA can successfully monitor the aircraft�s height-keeping performance;
  • ensure pilots are knowledgeable of RVSM requirements, policies, and procedures sufficient for the conduct of operations in RVSM airspace for which it intends to operate;
  • ensure the aircraft meets RVSM performance standards and has its altitude-keeping performance monitored in accordance with AC 91-85B, paragraph 4.3.;
  • not intend to conduct RVSM operations in foreign airspace where the State authority requires a specific RVSM operational authorization.
  • **At this time, NAARMO is not automatically processing ADS-B height monitoring results for all flights. US operators seeking height monitoring and who are unable to utilize an AGHME location can request ADS-B results by providing flight details using the ADS-B Monitoring Request form (PDF) NAARMO ADS-B Height Monitoring Request Form.

    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 FALSE indicates a problem with your approval documentation, or an outdated height monitoring.
