US Rvsm Training Crew/ATC

Fri Jul 30, 2004 8:55 am

I'm curious as to what, if any, RVSM training anyone is or has been told they are about to get.
I don't understand everything I don't know about this.

Most, if not all airlines are getting some sort of RVSM training now, usually part of recurrent
training.

CAL crews are RVSM qualified as are all the aircraft except the 10 remaining MD-80's. CO Express is 100% RVSM certified, crews and aircraft, too (at least that is what I am told)..

Express is close but not 100% compliant. We're in the home stretch on ADC upgrades, and we have a couple of planes that need some skin changes to comply with the skin waviness standards, but we'll definitely be done this quarter.

I'm scheduled for RVSM training/learjet recurrent beginning next Thursday. I'll report back asap, unless someone answers before then. From what it sounds, the RVSM training will only last about 4 hours. But it's probably one of those 20 minutes of info packed into 4 hours deals.  Insane
