OP you realize that seasons and temperatures fluctuate over the year not because of the change in distance to the sun... right? I learned this in like... 9th grade. And the temperature in the stratosphere does not change significantly outside the plane, and definitely not inside the plane, based on the time of year Come on

Principal 1, altitude is always above sea level unless it is followed by AGL. Above 18000 ft you switch from using actual barometer settings based on your location to the standard barometer setting of 29.98, and you refer to this "standardized altitude" as a flight level.

No such thing as seasons at 30,000 feet.

Because everyone just broke up with their boyfriends.

OP, you seem to be the kind of person that makes me hate consultants. Also, altitude is based off sea level, not ground level. 🙄

Ice cream is for any time any place. Get with the program

And, altitude is always measured based on sea level. For example, in Denver if your altitude is 6,280 ft you are 1,000 AGL. Finally, you misunderstand the cause of seasons if you think it is related to altitude

Does the temperature at cruising altitude really vary between summer and winter?

S1: Yes there are...altitude is based off ground-level therefore your distance to sun varies based on the ground you’re above D1: doesn’t matter, ice cream isn’t a winter treat

OP a) you showed your stupidity through your explanation of altitude, just blown away tbh b) dont eat the damn ice cream if you dont want it, stop whining

Also, OP, go to Whistler. There are multiple ice cream shops doing a hell of a business in winter ski season.

To be clear, altitude is expressed AGL near the ground and relative to a standard sea level barometer in the flight levels.

OP just sucks...

OP, where did you go?
