Tip for Wind Speed and Direction

If you like to start on the runway with Live Weather, you will find that the sim always gives you a default runway that does not match the current wind speed and direction.


Simply click on the Runway placard to get the updated wind and direction.

Then you can assign yourself to the correct active runway.

Nice tip…hadn’t noticed this. I usually use aviationweather.gov to get the METAR for a given airport, and/or use FlightAware to get a live visual of the runways in use, but I’ll have to try the above.

Maybe a feature request to have an inset window on view above that shows the current METAR data?
