Hey guys, can anyone help me? I'm wondering if there's a website out there that will show me flight paths.

Want to know the path of CDG - MIA also.

Thanks in advance

Most CDG-MIA flights will likely fly on the NATS -- try here.

Not quite true. I think you'll find the southern flights, depending on the winds will most likely take a more southerly random track. The return leg (MIA-CDG) would most likely use the NAT to take advantage of the wind.

My son and his wife just did ATL-MAD and FCO-ATL and both flights used the NAT tracks. While Miami is farther south than Atlanta, both Madrid and Rome are further to the south of Paris. I'd bet on the NATs.

edit: I just ran a great circle MIA - CDG on a globe. It passes over the Grand Banks, maybe a couple hundred miles south of Newfoundland. Crossing the middle of the north Atlantic, say in the vicinty of the Azores only looks shorter on a flat map. On a flat map of the northern hemisphere an east-west great circle will always curve north toward the pole.

I assume the NATS tracks take into account the jetstream and change according to weather?

Quoting Julesmusician (Reply 4):

Yes they do. They plot them (if I'm correctly informed) with reference to the northern jetstream, the boundary between the Ferrell cell and Polar cell air circulation systems. There may be a southern jetstream down closer to tropical latitudes which is the front between the Hadley cell and Ferrell cell but it is not organized like the northern jets and the Hadley cell produces easterly winds. (the northeast trades)

So summer or winter, the ideal crossing tends to be roughly between the Grand Banks and Labrador and between northern Scotland and, say Brest, France. The Atlantic is also very much narrower up there.

I have seen the southernmost track lie over the Azores but usually they are a ways north of there. Typically, 45 North might be about as far south as you would find the southernmost track.

Also they sometimes make the southernmost track angle down, from the vicinity of 40 or 50 west, toward the southern US, coasting in, maybe down toward the Chesapeake area.
