Abstract

The intrinsic uncertainty of thunderstorms poses a major threat for flights, as it jeopardizes the safety of the passengers and the airframe. The aim of this thesis consists in developing new methodologies for aircraft trajectory planning in real time assuming stochastic weather forecasts and suggest safe and efficient detours to pilots and ATCs.
