Swedish translation:"hot and high" trafik
Explanation:
"In aviation, hot and high is the ability of an airplane to operate safely from airports in very warm climates or very high elevations.
Warm air has a lower density than average, and the air at high elevation also has a lower density than at sea level. A lower air density means a reduction of the amount of lift generated by the airplane wings. This means that aircraft need a longer takeoff run than usual.
As a consequence, particular models of aircraft can not operate from "hot and high" airports with profitable loads."

"Hot and high" verkar vara ett vedertaget begrepp inom flygindustrin, också på svenska. Även på franska använder man "hot and high" begreppet. Om texten riktar sig till branschfolk tror jag nog att "hot and high" är rätt uttryck. Men jag är inte säker...Någon annan kollega kanske vet bättre.
Lycka till!
