Don't know if they are but I guess the answer is that they will need to be by Jan 2005.

The U.S. Domestic RVSM Program is a key element of the FAA’s National Airspace System Operational Evolution Plan (NAS OEP). Additional information on the OEP can be obtained by clicking on OEP. DRVSM is listed in the OEP under “Enroute Congestion”.

The DRVSM program objective is to implement RVSM between flight level (FL) 290-410 (inclusive) in the airspace of the lower 48 States of the United States, Alaska, Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic High Offshore Airspace (including Houston and Miami Oceanic airspace) and the San Juan FIR.

The planned implementation date/time is January 20, 2005 at 0901 UTC.

On the same date and time and at the same flight levels, Canada and Mexico are planning RVSM implementation. Canada implemented RVSM in its Northern Domestic Airspace in April 2002 and plans to expand RVSM into Canadian Southern Domestic Airspace in January 2005.

The RVSM program enables vertical separation to be reduced between FL 290-410 (inclusive) from 2,000 ft. to 1,000 ft. RVSM was first implemented in North Atlantic Airspace in 1997. It is now implemented in other major airspaces such as Europe, the Pacific Ocean and Australia.

The goal of DRVSM is to provide user and provider benefits in domestic U.S. operations that have been enjoyed since 1997 in other world airspaces. RVSM makes six additional flight levels available for operations between FL 290-410. It has been show to: enhance aircraft operating efficiency by making more fuel/time efficient flight levels available; enhance air traffic control flexibility and provide the potential for enhanced enroute airspace capacity.

Have you access to the database? When you say fleet, do you mean all or ????

No, I don't have access to the database, but I know the 320 family isn't ready. Maintenance hasn't done the neccessary Pitot-static testing. I assume the RJ's are not compliant either. The widebodys must be, because they are operating in Europe.

Conehead: I was just curious. The database I mentioned is the one that Navcan maintains or will maintain.

Cheers

Oh. I wasn't sure what you were referring to. I get nervous when someone mentions "accessing the database" on this forum!
