RVSM airspace has been established within the confines of MNPS airspace and associated transition areas. In RVSM airspace, 1000 ft. vertical separation is applied between approved aircraft. Currently, RVSM is only applied between FL 290 and FL 410 inclusive. To ensure the safe application of the separation minimum, only RVSM approved aircraft are allowed to operate within RVSM airspace. Aircraft are monitored to ensure that the TLS is being met.
