Cosmic ray produced gamma dose rates recorded by continuous dose logging systems shipped in a commercial flight flying in Frankfurt-Dubai-Mumbai sector are presented. The doses measured, in the 10 hour flight duration, at 10 minute interval were analyzed and a gamma dose rate factor of 1.14 μSv/h of flying was evaluated. The gamma dose rates were in the range of 0.74 to 1.34 μSv/h in the flight path.
