Jetstreams

I've been reading about this fascinating phenomenon. I know that jet airway lines are viewable on the map in FS but are jetstreams recreated in any flight sim so you can either fly with or against them? Not that you would want to fly against them though!

in the weather setting you can enable or disable the winds aloft.

Yes, they're there. How do you know where they are? I don't know...

I don't think that the Jetstream(s) are simulated in Flight Simulator.

Don't confuse high speed winds at altitude for the Jetstream.
