I'm posting the following query from a colleague, as I thought someone
here might have an answer for him.

When an aircraft is trying to level off it is likely that the aircraft
may slightly overshoot the level.  Later, when maintaining the level,
there will be minor vertical movements, of perhaps +/- 100 feet, which
the (auto-)pilot of the aircraft cannot eliminate.

I believe that these errors are called flight technical errors.

Does anyone have a model for simulating flight technical errors in an
RVSM scenario?  The model is needed for simulating TCAS events in RVSM
