Thank you, I will adapt to make my next post better
Yep its tough to get through
I had a brief headwind of 170 kts when flying to Gran Canaria 😨
Head to the area between Australia and Antarctica and you can often find 180+ kt winds at 32-34k ft
I always appreciate a hundred kt tail wind in IF. From irl records, looks like it won’t go a whole lot faster very often. irl: “787 Dreamliner was clocked at 801mph over Pennsylvania as it rode the fastest jet stream on record, blowing east at 231mph.”

231mph is 200kts.
@Aw3somedude98 you seem to have broken that record at 206kts!
The world record fastest measured jetstream was 225kts (259mph), by a weather balloon above Japan at fl340: Fastest jet stream on Earth | Guinness World Records
Lol I was the same. I flew into Amsterdam about an hour ago and the winds were crazy…
