HANKE-Aviation GmbH - Flight Crew Training
within a RVSM airspace, the operator must obtain an operational approval from
its national authorities.
ICAO Doc 7030, an RVSM approval is not restricted to a specific
region. Instead, it is valid globally on the understanding that any operating
procedures specific to a given region, in this case the EUR region, should be
stated in the operations manual or appropriate crew guidance.)
To achieve this goal the applicant
will need to show that the following subjects have been addressed:
Modification has been successfully
implemented and the equipment standard is adequate.
aircraft mean Altimetry System Error (ASE) must be better than 80ft and the mean
ASE + 3 times its standard deviation, taking into account unit to unit
variability and effect of environmental conditions must not exceed 200ft. The
autopilot must be capable to keep the selected altitude within 65ft under no
turbulent, no gust conditions. The "soft altitude hold" mode still
satisfies RVSM requirements.
Minimum Required Equipment for RVSM
The rate of
undetected failures of the altimetry system must not exceed 10-5 per
flight hours. The statement of RVSM capability is indicated in the AFM.
Maintenance program has been reviewed for RVSM according Manufacturers
requirements and Maintenance documentation (Maintenance Planning Guide) has been
amended in accordance with the LBA.
