85% percentile historical winds/temps have been used for ages by Manufacturers and Airlines, to judge the mission capability of a given aircraft.
|Quoting Alasizon (Reply 2):|
Now its worth noting that BBD (Bombardier) quotes all their ranges at zero wind.
|Quoting vikkyvik (Reply 3):|
Is that just a range, or the plot on a range chart, though?
If it's just range (irrespective of airport) then it makes sense to quote with zero wind, because the wind you factor in will differ depending on your origin and destination.
If it's range from a specific airport plotted on a map, or range between specific airport pairs, then you can account for typical winds.
At least that's what makes sense to me!
|Quoting Alasizon (Reply 4):|
They quote their ranges from specific airports around the world with 0 wind, as well as on their payload/range chart, it is quote with no wind.
