GoRVSM provides the documentation to the FAA to demonstrate that the operational and airworthiness requirements of your aircraft and crew have been met to conduct the applicable special operation. We’ll make you understand the FAA requirements and authorizations needed to enter the Special Areas of Operation that your flight will need to transit.
RVSM reduces the vertical separation of aircraft to 1,000 feet when flying at altitudes from FL290 (29,000 feet) to FL410 (41,000 feet). There’s a lot of benefit to operating in this airspace as it significantly increases (in theory, it nearly doubles) the number of airplanes that can fly in a defined area of airspace. Plus, it allows pilots to pick more efficient altitudes, avoid turbulence and save fuel.
Your GoRVSM team will help you navigate the procedures for obtaining authorization for operation the specific airspace to meet your needs and ensure a clear understanding of the Domestic RVSM Program (includes contiguous 48 states, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Central/South America and the Caribbean) and the International RVSM Program (NAT/HLA, Oceanic and Remote Operations and RNP-10.
To fly in this airspace, operators are required to submit an application to the FAA for operational approval. The FAA issues Part 91 Letters of Authorization (LOA) and Part 135 Operations Specifications (OpSpecs) for FAA registered aircraft operators. RVSM approval is issued to acombination of the Operator, the qualified pilot(s) and the specific aircraft so cannot be “transferred” to a new owner after the sale of an aircraft.
If your aircraft is operated under Part 91, it is important to determine which entity or entities are in Part 91 operational control prior to submitting an application to the FAA. If an aircraft is to be operated under Part 91 by the owner and leased to a charter company, then both the Part 91 operator and the Part 135 operator are required to obtain appropriate operational approval from the FAA. Separate authorizations are required for each person or entity in operational control of the aircraft.
