Enroute winds


#1

I’d first like to congratulate the FlightAware team for the great job you have done.

I just started using the website and have a doubt. When you plan a route, I noticed that in the Enroute Flight Plan, the TAS is different from the GS, this means you consider enroute winds, right? Where do you get the winds database from?

Best regards,
Rafael

Winds aloft are computer prepared four times a day by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and contain forecast wind direction and speed as well as forecast temperatures. FlightAware currently extracts the forecasts for the entire continental United States for each three-hour interval for 30 hours into the future as each forecast is delivered.
