Typical velocities for the jet stream are 50–100 miles per hour. Pilots, of course, are well aware of the jet stream and use this river of swiftly moving air as a tailwind to decrease ﬂying time from, say, San Francisco to New York. On the return ﬂight they try to avoid the jet stream. During summer months the jet stream is normally near 45˚ latitude and the tailwind provided by the jet stream shortens the west-to-east ﬂying time by 30–45 minutes. During the winter the jet stream is normally over northern Mexico and the southern United States.
