The Importance of a Pitot-Static System in RVSM Calibration

Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) can be defined as the reduction of vertical separation required for an aircraft flying anywhere between 29,000 ft. and 41,000 ft. RVSM allows aircrafts to fly in the same volume of airspace safely. To ensure overall safety, it is vital that all RVSM equipment is calibrated and operating properly. Accuracy of RVSM equipment starts with the precise calibration of an aircraft’s pitot-static system. Watch the video below to learn more.
