Chris Holmes Cruize wind 302/125 -> is there any way I can compensate for this to minimise delay?
Ian Carine Evening Chris. I would say that the limitation is the cruising speed of the aircraft. According to Wikipedia, this is M0.78. It doesn't matter the wind direction. Planes are delayed by headwinds just as tailwinds help them along. Either way, the limitation is the M0.78 cruise speed. Although a max airspeed of M0.82 is given, my experience is that I get too many "over-speed" alarms above M0.80 with the standard FSX B737. Hope this helps.
Ian Carine Another thought. If you have details of winds aloft, you can vary your cruise altitude to take of advantage of a more favourable wind if there is one, providing your cruise altitude remains realistic and economical in terms of fuel use.
