      High Altitude Flying and Radiation Posted on October 2, by Shem Malmquist FRAeS There is much concern in the pilot community of the exposure to radiation as a consequence of high altitude flight. physiological significance involved in flight are: marked changes in barometric pressure, considerable variation in temperature, and movement at high speed in three dimensions. .

The average annual cosmic radiation dose for flight personnel was mSv. Annual individual doses of all monitored flight personnel are well below the limit of 20 mSv y -1.

Crews of high-altitude aircraft are exposed to radiation from galactic cosmic rays (GCRs). To help determine such exposures, the Atmospheric Ionizing Radiation Project, an international collaboration of 15 laboratories, made simultaneous radiation measurements with 14 instruments on a NASA ER-2 high-altitude by: A severe disturbance in the Sun sometimes leads to a large increase.
