How to evaluate / measure Wind speed and direction In Flight?


Is there a way to evaluate the speed of wind, and the direction, when flying? I mean from the onboard instrument? I guess it might depend on the plane.
Any tips welcome, thanks.

Open the windows :wink:

If you have a G1000 or similar you can enable it on the display

Except with a G1000 (which, in real, calculate wind component with the difference between your aircraft orientation and it’s real direction), no, like in real life.

So if ATC is asking a Left hand and Rear WInd entry, I should rely on the local weather station I suppose?

On ATIS info if any.
ATC should give your the right runway according to wind (i don’t know if it is the case in MSFS)
