REDUCED VERTICAL SEPARATION MINIMA (RVSM)
Our RVSM course helps pilots and flight instructors to understand and review Reduced Vertical Separation Minima or RVSM operations. Based on ICAO DOC 9574 and AIR OPS (FLT 2.2.18) the course describes the operations, limitations and requirements for flight in RVSM airspace during flight planning, in-flight and post-flight.
WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE?
The course is designed to be completed in average of 30 minutes.
