Reduced Vertical Separation Minima
In 2008, South Africa joined most of the rest of the world in making further flight levels accessible to traffic. The Conventional Vertical Separation Minima of 2000 ft was reduced to allow better usage of airspace and ensure seamless operation into Europe. Our Reduced Vertical Separation Minima course ensures understanding of responsibilities within RVSM airspace and equipment requirements to ensure the safety of the reduced separation. Our course makes reference to the North Atlantic Area where Minimum Navigation Performance is also a requirement for explanation of the historical development of this airspace usage.
The course covers the following aspects:
- RVSM Pilot procedures
- RVSM Phraseology
- In-flight Contingency procedures
- Communication failure procedures
- Minimum Navigation procedures
- TCAS 11
“A pilot lives in a world of perfection, or not at all.”
Six new flight levels between 29,000ft and 41,000ft became available with the introduction of RVSM.
