Description

This advisory circular (AC) applies to all Operators conducting Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) operations. The AC can be used to obtain an initial operational authorization, or amend an existing, operational authorization. The AC appendices include supportive information relating to RVSM airworthiness certifications, training programs, operating practices and procedures, RVSM operations in oceanic and remote continental airspace, and review of height-keeping parameters. This AC describes acceptable means, but not the only means, for an Operator to obtain authorization to conduct flight in airspace or on routes where RVSM is applied. The advisory material contained in this AC has been substantially modified since the AC was issued in its original form in 2009.
