How to avoid turbulence and winds?

Hello everybody. Today, I am asking you how to avoid turbulence and winds? When at FL300 (ish) I experience winds around 100 knots, and I would like to know how I can smoothen my flight. Thank you!

Hello Pie!
This is called winds alloft, high altitude winds which cut or add flight time to your flight, a head wind slows down your flight time and makes you use up more fuel, whilst a tail wind speeds up your flight time and helps conserve fuel.
Windy.com is good for this, I reccomend using windy for planning.

Also Reccomend looking at this Tutorial by our dear freind Mr Sandstorm, it shows you how to do a flight plan and plan accordingly with winds and how to use fuel.


I hope this helps you.
Warm regards,

I see. Very handy. So now that I can see the winds, how should that change my flightplan? Is it better to have a headwind when cruising or a crosswind?
