Enroute wind prediction

Recommended Posts

I often have a problem with long haul fligts namely that I find no way to predict winds en route. I use to add some tons fuel to be prepared for significant head winds but I would like to know how I can get wind dir/speed along my route after having downloaded real weather with winds aloft into FS2002.Does somebody know that?

A good site is http://aviationweather.gov/fdwinds.There you can see the winds aloft at different altitudes. Remember a site where one entered a flight plan and the site displayed the best altitude based on winds aloft en route. I can't remember the site, hopefully another poster will.EDIT: Never mind, I found it! The site is www.fltplan.com. Unfortunately it's only for flight in the USA. Still, great site and it's free.RegardsDave Vega
