    Sorry, LL, I didn't see your post. My brain damage must have kept me from seeing it. I meant no disrespect with you posting it first.

    FAA has been looking the other way on RVSM. Yes it is necessary for European tracks, Even so I will use strategic Lateral offset procedures SLOP......which is simply flying slightly off course and off altitude.....

    You will get called out for being off altitude by more than 100'. There are certain waypoints that check the altitude by radar. Fail at the checkpoint and you are sent down to FL280 which isn't very economical for a jet.

    A lot of airspace at those levels is RNP now- can't go off by much without getting scolded. If you do, make sure you stay to the upwind side. My F/O today showed me an article about this incident that shows the bizjet directly under the A-380's track. With a bit more or less crosswind, they likely would have missed the vortices. I'm curious about the reaction time of the pilots.
