RVSM stands for Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum. What does this exactly mean? In more detail, RVSM is used to reduce the vertical separation of an aircraft from 2,000 feet to 1,000 feet when flying at altitudes between 29,000 feet (FL240) and 41,000 feet (FL410).
RVSM is use today because it significantly increases the number of airplanes that can fly in a defined airspace area. In theory, RVSM nearly doubles the number of airplanes per area. It also allows pilots to choose more efficient altitudes and avoid unwanted turbulence. Watch the brief video below to learn more.

Shadow Boards are visual methods of storing and organizing tools, parts and other items so that they are easy to identify and readily available at specific workplaces. Each shadow board consists of outlines or “shadows” in the shape of individual items to make it obvious where each item should be stored. Shadow Boards are always […]
In aviation, there are many types of altitudes with their own meanings and uses. In its general term, altitude can be defined as an aircraft’s vertical distance above a fixed datum, typically the ground level or sea level. Flight Levels define altitude differently. Flight Levels refer to an aircraft’s vertical distance referenced to a standard […]
