As the cancellation of dozens of flights departing from the airport in Phoenix, during a heat wave that struck Arizona last month, aircraft take-off problems when the temperature rises. By heating, the air lost is the density, and a less dense air-plane wings miss from the port, Ethan concluded the study conducted by the student and one skilled in the climate Coffel Radley Horton.

The only solution if cancellation is not desired, the weight relief of the airplane by reducing the amount of fuel, cargo or passenger number.
