Where to Look Up Your Aircraft RVSM Approval and Monitoring History
At CSSI, we are often asked “how do I find my results of aircraft RVSM Monitoring?” (RVSM stands for Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum, for more detail you can read this article for further explanation on RVSM ).
The answer is that you can look up your aircraft registration online, if you know your aircraft country of registration is and where to look.
Each country now falls under a Regional Monitoring Agency, usually a government or aviation industry entity that collects data for a group of countries in a region and shares approval data with other agencies. The data sharing agreements between agencies allows for an aircraft approved for RVSM in one country to operate in RVSM in any part of the world.
To find your aircraft RVSM Monitoring history online, you need to know the country your aircraft is registered in and what Regional Monitoring Agency maintains the RVSM approval records for that country.
Below is a list of some places to look online for results and the sites are listed with countries they maintain records for.
If you need help, you can contact the agency by (using the agency name links below) and go to that agency’s contact page or you can contact the CSSI RVSM Team at our website, we regularly coordinate with many of the agencies listed below and would be happy to assist you.
