....how often will you have a tail wind, since you technically can only land on that runway in one direction, due to the obstructions (hills) on the opposite end. What is the normal prevailing wind at STT? Also, are strong crosswinds common?

Hey I'm from Saint Thomas so I'll give this a try. During the summer what I noticed is that the winds were normally out of the east cause that is just how the winds flow normally, especially during the summer patterns. Also when the tail winds are strong like this time of the year I think they may divert to San Juan and Saint Croix. But I think the winds are normally out of the east.
