Weather Engine Real-Time Cloud Synchronization

The weather engine takes full advantage of all the new features our new weather system. The weather engine focuses on two simple things: Accurate data and accurate experience in ONE integrated system. The engine automatically syncs 3D cloud model structures in real-time during flight. This takes place dynamically within the simulator. The correct type of cumulus, stratus, nimbo-stratus, or cumulonimbus clouds will be injected.

Server-Based Sync

We utilize the power of our Edge servers to build an accurate weather profile ON our servers and by offsetting the work of assimilating the weather data to our servers allows us to reduce the amount of performance hit to your machine. Having data on our servers permits the system to look at forthcoming weather conditions while in-flight. 

Synchronization System Status Controller


We have streamlined all of the processes of controlling weather injection, cloud model syncing, sim briefing status and network mode into one, easy-to-use area!

  • We use the metar data we capture to map an accurate 3D view of the atmosphere, therefore synching the proper clouds while in-flight.
  • Synoptic weather systems are experienced while traversing across oceans or continents.
  • Meso-Alpha Weather: This is a little smaller than synoptic systems, but because of our data points, you can now experience an exact squall line or complex of storms known as an MCS (Mesoscale Convective System).
  • Meso-Beta Weather: Because of the extent of our data points, slightly smaller weather events such as sea-breezes and small snow squalls can be experienced.
  • Meso-Gamma: Just above the microscale level you can now experience isolated storms in the form of a super cell thunderstorm with tops near 70,000ft.
  • Microscale (Stormscale): We now can interpret directional and speed shear of the winds in the atmosphere, CAPE (convective available potential energy), helicity, storm relative velocity and other parameters. In combination with our unique 3D cloud models, we can provide virtual flyers with rain-shafts, roll clouds, shelf clouds, wall clouds, true scud, and even tornadoes.

Virtual pilots like to fly in challenging weather. The Weather Center provides a search feature to find the danger, or to avoid it.

Search by ICAO code, range near to an ICAO code, or by crucial several weather elements. Some of these weather elements include the type of weather, weather intensity, visibility, cloud base, and wind speed.

With the click of a button, you can search to retrieve all the weather stations or airports experiencing the weather you searched for in a matter of seconds.

The weather engine looks ahead of the flyer to determine what weather is coming.

During your flight, it dynamically synchronizes accurate cloud models based on the upcoming weather conditions. You always fly into a “fresh” atmosphere instead of stale and static. If you are flying along in a storm and the weather engine receives data that a funnel cloud is reported, the engine syncs one of several tornado/funnel cloud models. It doesn’t randomly pick a model – it intelligently looks at the type of atmospheric conditions and selects the best match for the parameters of that day.

Prepar3D with REX Sky Force, ORBX Global and Vector and PTA. 

We supply you with access to real-time weather information while in-sim.

Using the built-in menu system within the flight simulator, you can view the closest surface and upper-level weather data.

If you have submitted a flight plan into the Sky Force Flight Center, then you can access the latest departure and arrival weather data while in-sim.

If you do not have to time to look at the data, you can simply select the audible weather briefing option which provides a detailed overview.
