There is another signature ability called Highwind associated with Cid Highwind from Final Fantasy VII and Oerba Yun Fang from Final Fantasy XIII, that the English naming of this ability likely alludes to.
Aranea uses Highwind when she is a guest during Chapter 7 and when she joins the party randomly afterward for battles against daemons and hunts. It can be invoked with the Technique command and costs 2 tech bars to use. It deals damage to one enemy.
Aranea has two Techniques: Highwind is used outdoors, while Dragoon Dive is used indoors. The player can again invoke Aranea to use them with the Technique command, and her Techniques cost 2 tech bars. Aranea downing enemies can make enemies weak for Prompto to use his crackshot for critical damage.
Air Superiority (エア・スペリオリティ, Ea Superioriti?) is Aranea's Burst Soul Break. The ability can only be learned from the "Aranea's Cowl (XV)" armor piece. The ability deals eight jump lightning and dark attacks to a single target. The ability also temporarily infuses the user with the power of lightning, and grants Haste and Burst Mode.
Despite being called "Air Superiority" in the English localization of the game, the ability is actually Aranea's Highwind technique from "Final Fantasy XV." This name change was done to avoid confusion with her Highwind (ハイウインド, Haiwindo?) Overstrike Soul Break learned from the 6-star relic Stoss Spear, which is a different ability in Japanese.
Highwind is a recurring surname for Dragoons in the series, and also a recurring special attack for Dragoon-type characters. Aranea from Final Fantasy XV is likewise a Dragoon. However, the ability is not called this in the Japanese version, and thus the allusion only exists in the localization.

On land, high wind moves entire trees, and effort is required to walk against it."High wind" is typical of wind speeds that place a seven on the
