We completed the first Falcon 900 and the first Gulfstream G-IV RVSM approvals in the country!
Operations within RVSM airspace require a Letter of Authorization (LOA) from the appropriate Regulatory Authority as well as an RVSM Standard Practices Manual. This RVSM Manual must also include contingency procedures in the event equipment failures render the aircraft non-RVSM compliant, thus an RVSM specific MEL or Maintenance and Operations Procedures Manual is also required. Operators not meeting these requirements and the proper authority can be restricted from operating!
D & D Aviation has successfully accomplished Thousands of approvals to conduct operations in RVSM airspace for our Worldwide clientele. In fact, no organization has done more!
The criteria evaluated to issue this authorization consist of three basic elements:
The OPERATOR'S aircraft complies with the requirements.
The OPERATOR'S maintenance program complies with the requirements.
The operator has adopted RVSM operating policies and procedures for pilots.
D & D Aviation Services will assemble all of the required applications and manuals from the customer’s information and responses to D & D Aviation’s proprietary Checklists and Questionnaires’ and then customize an RVSM Standard Practices and Policies Manual.
For Operators Who Do Not Require Global Authority: Our “Domestic RVSM Procedures Manual” is designed to address all of the required information and components to meet the issuance of RVSM Authority including the RVSM Maintenance Program and any Navigational Approvals Required such as MNPS (Northern Canada), RNP-10, etc. The Domestic RVSM Procedures Manual contains explicit policies and defined procedures as required by the Regulatory Authority for operations from the Tip of Alaska to the Tip of Chile and all points in between as well as the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and WATRS defined airspace. Our design eliminates the need to carry not only a Standard Practices Manual and a separate Approved Maintenance Program to meet the requirements, thus reducing the number of documents on the aircraft.
For Operators Needing Global Operations: Our “International Procedures Manual” was designed to address all of the required information and components to meet the issuance of RVSM Authority including the RVSM Maintenance Program and any Navigational Approvals Required to conduct Global Operations including MNPS, RNP-10/5/4/1, BRNAV, P-RNAV, FANs 1/A+ including CPDLC procedures, ADS-C and ADS-B Out authority. The International Procedures Manual contains explicit policies and defined procedures as required by the Regulatory Authority for RVSM operations including the RVSM Approved Maintenance Program. Our design eliminates the need to carry not only a Standard Practices Manual for RVSM, a Standard Practices Manual for International Operations and a separate Approved Maintenance Program to meet the requirements, thus reducing the number of documents on the aircraft.
Regardless of the type of aircraft you operate, you can benefit from reduced mission cancellations, escalating fuel costs remaining outside RVSM designated airspace trying to obtain your approvals by allowing D & D Aviation Services to handle your RVSM associated submission application and manual requirements. We can even package one of our operator/aircraft specific MEL’s or Maintenance and Operations Procedures Document’s for your aircraft. We have the experience and technical expertise in aviation regulations to provide you with the MELs you need. In fact, we guarantee it and we put that in writing.
