Wind is actually working for you?

My wind is always 3kts at every altitude no matter what.

Oh my word. Just done EGCC to EGNE, over the Peak District, in a C152, and I’m not sure that would have been too good in a VR headset. :slight_smile:

Yes, you could say that the live weather is working in Manchester. I live just South of EGNE and 60 or so miles from Manchester, and it is very windy and raining here.

and very bumpy. The sounds these aircraft make are scarily good. I thought the wings were falling off. :slight_smile:

I wish they’d put a shorter visible range on the other players’ labels though, say 10nm.

It depends where you fly. The wind does work in the UK
