Radiation Exposure During Flights
rule of thumb, you might estimate that a person
would receive 1 mrem per 1000 miles flown at 30,000
feet above the ground. However, radiation dose
levels represent a complex function of duration of
flight, latitude, and altitude. An annual radiation
dose limit of 1 mSv (100 mrem) for members of the
public has been recommended by the National Council
on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP).
The FAA has introduced an alert system that sends
airlines a warning at the start of a significant
solar-particle event. The event is
specifically intended to limit the radiation dose
received by pregnant women by redirecting the
aircraft to a safer altitude.
