RVSM System Requirements & Calibration

Reduced Vertical Separation Minima (RVSM) was introduced to allow aircrafts in designated airspace to operate with a reduced separation of 1000 feet from FL290 through FL410 instead of the previous 2000 ft that has been around since 1960. Technical advancements have led to significant improvements in the accuracies if the altimeter systems in aircraft and makes RVSM implementation possible.
