Winds aloft.


  • Pilot

    G’day.
    I’m wondering why l can’t get wind for 8,500 and 9,500 ft
    I find Windy a great tool for winds aloft.
    l fly north @ 8,500
    And south @ 9,500.
    Windy can only tell me wind @ 6,500 or 10,000 as the closest altitude, and 500 ft can make a difference between a head wind or tail wind.
    I usually climb and find out through indicated air speed, but it would be nice if l could plan for more accurate wind direction and speed.

    Also cloud base at different altitude in feet would be great benefit.

    Over the years of using Windy l have found it to be incredibly accurate even a week in advance.

    Have you already tried the airgram to give you an idea about clouds, base and height ? Same for the wind ?
