Standard procedures to estimate en-route aircraft performance rely upon the “standard atmosphere”. Real-world conditions are then represented as deviations from the standard atmosphere. Both flight manuals and aircraft designers make heavy use of the “deviation method” to account for geographical and temperature differences in atmospheric conditions. This method is often done statically, choosing a single deviation based on temperature and a single wind speed for the duration of an entire mission.
