Accurate flight predictions are crucial for the success of many HAB flights. A payload landing in a city center or large body of water may have been avoided by scrubbing a flight due to prediction results. Many of the assumptions made by prediction algorithms were made to save computational resources and are no longer needed and certainly not valid. This poster examines some of the most common assumptions in an attempt to categorize the error created.
