Strong Tailwinds towards HAAB

Just a heads up for anyone on the east trip towards HAAB, there is very strong tailwinds upwards of 180kts. It may push your ETE to dest time 1 hour early!

Hi! While Windy.com is a nice website those winds shown are on the ground, 30,000 feet in the air, the winds are bound to be different. But yes, there probably are high winds just not 120 knots 😉

Same in the Southern Hemisphere. I am currently doing SA227, it used to be a scheduled service by SAA from SAEZ to FAOR but was discontinued in 2014, and I’m experiencing roughly 120knt tailwinds! All courtesy of SimBrief of course!

Who wants to try to fly from Boston to Shannon in a C172

The 172 would get destroyed with those winds

You actually can change the altitude on windy.com to get FL300 which it seems he has done
