I know that a FAR 23 VLJ can be RVSM certified, if the OEM seeks it. I understand the pilot must also be RVSM "certified" - but I'm having difficulty finding out what that really means to the FAA, in terms of how such a "certification" is registered - if it is registered at all.

As an RVSM "certified" single pilot, are you issued an endorsement, FSDO acknowledgement, certificate, welcome kit, initiation party, etc. What does it mean legally to be Single Pilot RVSM Certified, I guess is what I am asking.

Come to think of it, I don't even know what the hell I'm asking - but you probably get the point thus far. That is how foggy the whole thing appears to me, at least on the surface. I'm sure that there is a good explanation that I am completely unaware of, however.
