COSMIC RADIATIONS CALCULATOR
FlightLog logbook app includes a tool to calculate your received cosmic radiation dose for any flight.
What are cosmic radiations ?
Cosmic Radiations Dose Calculator [TOOLS]
- Enter OACI airports (from and destination)
- Enter duration of flight
- Enter Step Climbs : START for first FL, END for the last one. FlightLog will truncate your flight in equal parts. Leave END empty, or equal to START FL for constant altitude flight.
The app will calculate instantly (no network required) the received dose.
Cosmic Radiation Dose per flight
When logging your flight, any change in OFF-ON block will calculate on-the-fly the radiation dose. If you have inserted a detailled FPR with level changes, altitude changes will be taken into effect. If not, FL370 is the default constant altitude.
You can also tap on RADIATION DOSE field to enter manually Step climbs.
Your radiation dose is cumulated, you can check your annual dose by going to STATS page > RADIATION DOSE 365 DAYS
The maximum annual dose for crew is around 6 mSv.
