Short summary
Using a new air-shower simulation driven by the proton flux data obtained from GOES satellites, we show the possibility of significant enhancement of the effective dose rate of up to 4.5 µSv/hr at a conventional flight altitude of 12 km during the largest solar proton event that did not cause a ground-level enhancement. As a result, a new GOES-driven model is proposed to give an estimate of the contribution from the isotropic component of the radiation dose in the stratosphere.
