I’m doing a tour of the Alps (which I can fully reccomend in case someone is intersted the link is here: Italian Alps Tour 2021 » Microsoft Flight Simulator ) and I just completed the 5th flight. I have the live weather selected, and I had the nice surprise that overnight everything filled up with snow. So I started and everything looked very nice
Quickly weather got worse (clouds are just amazing)
and I noticed the formation of ice on the glass… until the point that I could not see anything
Going down wasn’t an option, so I kept following the navigation log and reached the airport, but I still couldn’t see much of it
So, apart from the obvious cheat of sticking my head out of the window the only thing I could do has been to land looking at the Garmin screen. Not my best landing, but better than the alternatives
at that point, the ice was mostly gone, but that was after landing.
I had a look around but I couldn’t see any control to defrost the glass.
Does anyone know what would be the right way to proceed in these situations?
The plane felt a bit heavy when it was full of ice, but apart from that, it kept flying fine.
