In 1997, a historical event took place in our industry. Vertical separation between aircraft was reduced to 1,000 ft (300m) in North Atlantic MNPS airspace. This program is called RVSM or Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum(s).

Since this historic event, we have witnessed the spread of RVSM airspace to encompass altitudes between FL285 and FL420 (inclusive) i the North Atlantic, Europe, Western Atlantic and Caribbean, South Atlantic, North Pacific, Central and Western Pacific, South China Sea, Australia, and Canadian airspace. Most pilots think, "International Airspace doesn't affect me", or the inevitable, "that's the future, we've got plenty of time".

For the record, DRVSM (Domestic Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums) is scheduled for implementation in the contiguous 48 stales of the United States and Alaska and in the Gulf of Mexico airspace between FL290 and FL410 in January 2005 for all aircraft. Full DRVSM will add six additional usable altitudes above FL290 to those available under today's Conventional Vertical Separation Minimum system. The ATC system will experience increased benefits, such as operational efficiency, enhanced airspace capacity and increased throughput of en route traffic.

Operations within this type of airspace requires a Letter of Authorization (LOA) from the Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) as well as an RVSM Standard Practices Manual and RVSM specific MEL. Experience has shown that those operators not prepared with the proper authority during the RVSM implementation were restricted from operating.

Don't let this happen to you.

At D&D we have spent several years developing an acceptable manual to meet the global requirements of RVSM implementation and operations. Based on the comments from existing customers, success has been achieved! We completed the first Falcon 900 and the first Gulfstream G-IV RVSM approvals in the country.

At D&D Aviation Services, we've spent several years developing an acceptable International Operations Manual that would meet all of the ICAO and appropriate regulatory and interim guidance material requirements for Global Operations.
