- Fri Aug 23, 2019 8:40 am #535231 I noticed that flights going Southwest over Europe (EGLL/London area to Spain/Portugal) fly at odd altitudes whereas a flight going in the same direction in the US would be at an even altitude (FL320, FL340, FL360, etc.) Are the RVSM rules different in the UK/Europe? It caught me off guard as I am not used to flying in Europe on Vatsim.
- Fri Aug 23, 2019 12:28 pm #535235 Don't worry about that too much since flight rules vary from one country to another. However there is a gerenal rule which works pretty fine:
Even flightlevel (FL320/340/360 etc): Flying westbound or northbound
Odd flightlevel (FL310/330/350 etc.): Flying eastbound or southbound
When ATC is online, he/she will assign the correct FL to you if necessary
