AeroMech manages and executes the necessary engineering, administrative, and logistical tasks required for Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) airworthiness certification. RVSM programs typically involve two main activities:
1. Air data system upgrades/retrofits from the current configuration.
2. RVSM certification of the candidate airframe or fleet of aircraft
AeroMech provides aircraft operators with assistance in determining a suitable avionics upgrade modification necessary for RVSM equipment and configuration compliance.
In 2009 the FAA authorized AeroMech to perform its own RVSM certification activities and issue STCs under the FAA’s new Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) program. By FAA policy, ODA may be granted only to organizations with considerable experience that have demonstrated a high level of competence in carrying out certification and airworthiness functions. Holding ODA demonstrates the FAA’s trust in our people and internal procedures and we take this responsibility very seriously.
