First, let us start with long range passenger operations, which are serviced for the greatest part by subsonic commercial jets. The basic principle is that the airplane takes off from airport A and flies to airport B along a recognized flight corridor, then returns to A. The main parameters of the mission planning are the distance between the airports, the flight time, the downtime at the airport for getting the airplane ready (also called time-on-station), the flight speed, the local air traffic, and the departure times at both ends.

2. Calculate the relative pressure by solving numerically Eq. 38. 3. Calculate the relative density from Eq. 24. PROBLEMS 1. Write a program that solves the equations of the International Standard Atmosphere and on output provide the ratios σ, δ and θ as a function of the altitude h. 2. 6, find the corresponding altitude in ISA atmosphere by solving Eq. 34 for the unknown h. 3. Plot the air viscosity as a function of altitude, by solving Eq. 36. Discuss the origin and the meaning of this equation.

Discuss the origin and the meaning of this equation. 4. Due to improper closing, the door of a certain aircraft is lost in flight. At the time of the incident the aircraft is flying at an altitude h = 6,000 m with a speed U = 400 km/h. Describe the effects on the aircraft, on the passengers and the cargo. Motivate your answer. Calculate the pressure drop in the cabin by using the data of the International Standard Atmosphere at the flight altitude. 5. Calculate the air mass in the atmosphere from sea level to 5,000 m using the ISA data.
