Activesky Question

Recommended Posts

First off, I really enjoy activesky, but I have one problem. When flying to my destination, ATIS is giving me the winds at my flight level, not at the airport. Many times I'm told one runway by approach, and then given the circle to land by the tower, because of the change in wind direction at a lower altitude. Is there a way to get everyone on the same page to eliminate the circle to lands. Thanks, Shawn

Hi Shawn,You can solve this problem by using the "Force Custom ID" option. Put in your destination METAR/airport ID, click the "Force" checkbox, and now when you get within 60nm (you can change this distance) the weather and winds automatically force to this report and will remain consistent throughout your approach.Note that the wind speed will become 'simulated' for upper altitude flight but will slow down to the surface METAR winds when you get there. The direction will always be in accordance with landing conditions though, so your runway assignment will not change.Check it out!-Damian
