Just wondering when calculating missions parameters (time, necessary fuel...), what is the impact of flying RVSM or not on the calculation ?
To my knowledge, flying RVSM is just having a relative height versus other Aircraft of 1000ft instead of 2000ft....
So, when calculating a mission, you focus on your aircraft with a typical mission profile but you shouldn't care of the others whether they are 2000ft or 1000ft above you during cruise....
So, why is it always precised RVSM ?
Second question I have is in term of results, how come RVSM represent a better view on the performance?
Thanks for any answer that could help.
