NOTAM: Westbound Flights

Postby Crane, VJA0002 » Mon Dec 19, 2016 7:47 pm


As the Jetstream dips farther South from Canada this Winter, headwinds for westbound flights are expected to be in excess of 100 knots at altitude.

Because of this, all Flight Crews are urged to file and fly the lowest possible en-route altitude above FL180, westbound. Flying lower will help mitigate excessive headwind encounters. Avoiding excessive headwinds will minimize flight delays and unnecessary fuel consumption.

Please review Winds & Temps Aloft for your route of flight.
