The standard vertical separation minima between two aircraft flying in the same direction above FL290 is..
  • A
    4000 feet.
  • B
    1000 feet.
  • C
    2500 feet.
  • D
    2000 feet.

Refer to figure.

  • In RVSM airspace, vertical separation above FL290 is 1 000 ft => According to this rule, aircraft travelling on the same direction will be separated by twice the vertical separation: 1 000 x 2 = 2 000 ft.
  • In Non-RVSM airspace (standard), vertical separation above FL290 is 2 000 ft => According to this rule, aircraft travelling on the same direction will be separated by twice the vertical separation: 2 000 x 2 = 4 000 ft.
