Crz Wind | Cruise Winds from Simbrief


Recommended Posts

I debated whether to post this in help or General Discussion. Discussions won.

I figured out how to program the FMS primarily watching YouTube videos. I noticed that some sim pilots use AVG WIND (Average winds) and some use the TOC winds (Top of Climb winds). I haven't be able to get a definitive answer of which one to use and why. While I have my suspicions on which one is correct, I wanted to hear from someone who knows.

SIMBRIEF  --  PERF INIT:  AVG WIND or TOC Wind?

What that they say about always learning?

It's been over a month since I posted the question of which winds to use. My own research has led me to this conclusion.

I should use TOC winds for long-range flights. I suspect that I would be able to import winds along the route, or import the wind information tables provided by Simbrief (I know that the ZIBO 737 now supports this feature). Otherwise, I should use the average winds for short-range flights.

A new question arises. What constitutes a short-range flight? A flight less that 1 or 2 hours?

If I'm off the mark, let me know.

I dont think it really matters as i think its for fuel burn planning as once you are up there it corrects itself anyway, but im no pilot.
