Abstract:

Equivalent headwinds or equivalent winds are computed for about 2000 routes over strategic air routes. The seasonal mean equivalent wind and its standard deviation and the annual 50-, 75- and 85-per cent reliability equivalent winds are tabulated. Route winds are computed for the 20,000-, 30, 000-, 40,000- and 53,000-foot levels.An IBM 7090 program was used to compute the equivalent winds.
