Jet Streams

Hello, around last year or so I was talking to a real world pilot and I ask how high we will be cruising, he said FL390 so we can be in the jet stream, so then I wondered does IF have a jet steam? Please tell me!

Yes I think cause IF uses real world weather

Once I went 650kts+ cause I hit a jet stream

You can check windy.com to see the current jet streams around the world.

The jet stream is a high altitude wind band, which is generally speaking across the North Atlantic, but can have different shapes and different areas it covers (both horizontally and vertically).

As said above the weather in IF is the current weather (at least regarding winds, where available) and hence the jet stream can be found in IF.

It generally blows in Eastern direction at high altitudes.
