  • The reinforcement of Cockpit drills to ensure that ATC clearances are fully understood, correctly complied with and queried should the need arise
  • Information on the use and limitations of standby altimeters
  • Visual perception differences at altitudes where previously a 2000 ft separation was applied
  • Characteristics of the aeroplanes altitude capture system
  • Any additional aeroplane restrictions applicable to an RVSM environment
  • Aeroplane and/or autopilot handling considerations if turbulence is experienced and the requirement to alert ATC if such an encounter prevents compliance with RVSM operation/clearance
  • TCAS/ACAS operating characteristics and the need to ensure that currently acceptable rates of climb or descent may need to be modified whilst changing flight level, particularly when entering of flying within RVSM airspace
