Re: Engine failure question

I know that by FAA and many other administrations, they would definitely say a plane with a failed engine would need to land regardless of how much fuel is left in the tank, and regardless of if repairing there is easy. Flight beyond the nearest suitable airport is permitted by the FAA and most oth...

RVSM goes up to FL410 with 1000 feet of separation. Above that you need 2000 feet of separation. The highest two RVSM Flight Levels are thus 400 and 410, but the next two Flight Levels are 430 and 450. 420 and 440 are not permitted. https://i0.wp.com/flightcrewguide.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Se...
