Is there any speed restriction for operation of windshield wipers on B737 aircraft.

None listed in AA's operating manual; however, they are pretty much useless at speeds above 50-60 knots. Airstream will blow moisture off at higher speeds.

Agree its not used in cruise,except for T/o & landings.
But can the Windshield wiper operate normally with Air resistance at cruise.

I have no idea because I've never bothered turning them on inflight. I only use them for taxiing.
