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.
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.
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.
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.
