Definition of Commonly Used Day Types (Atmospheric Ambient Temperature Characteristics Versus Pressure Altitude)
"Hot Day ", "Tropical Day ", "Standard Day ", "Polar Day " and "Cold Day " are part of the lexicon of the aircraft industry. These terms are generally understood to refer to specific, generally accepted characteristics of atmospheric temperature versus pressure altitude. There are also other, less well-known days, defined by their frequency of occurrence, such as "1% Hot Day ", "10% Cold Day ", or "Highest Recorded Day ". These temperature characteristics have their origins in multiple sources, including U.S. military specifications which are no longer in force.
ARP210 has been upgraded to a full aerospace standard AS210. Therefore, ARP210 is now out of date.
