Temperature Effect to Altitude Corrections and Operational Application

Jan Cejnar, Iveta Kameníková

Abstract


The thesis is focused to familiarize the reader with air mass behaviour, legislative requirements and methods of altitude corrections. The goal of the thesis is evaluation of the presently used operational procedures applied to the altitude corrections according to the change of air parameters. The final part of the thesis determines altitudes necessary for corrections and represents the proposal of optimized altitude correction method.

Keywords
