We have measured the atmospheric secondary radiation due to cosmic ray showers along specific flight trajectories within Thailand. The secondary radiation at aircraft altitude is complex, with different types of particles over a large energy range. Using SEI Inspector detectors, the ionizing radiation dosage rate was measured at altitudes of 30,000, 33,000, and 36,000 feet to be 1.168 ,1.275 and 1.617 $\mu \textrm{Sv/hr}$ respectively.
