The same for me, I've been practicing during the afternoon in my home Airport, KMIA, very nice, I live very close to the Aiport, and the weather looked just like in FS2002. Great work!!

I agree totally...just loaded up ver 1.5, and did a touch and go at Bowerman Field, KHQM in Washington state...its foggy and overcast, and sure enough, I was IMC at 400 ft. Luckily for me there's an ILS here, so I made it safely home after only one go-round.Bob BernsteinEdmonds, Wa.

Hmmmmmm, can Acvite Sky download weather and store it offline (for example I am not connected to the net at home, so would have to go to work or school to download)?

Hello DamianI smile every time I read one of your replies, usually involving yet another upgrade. I smile because it makes me proud to have been one of your beta testers. Your perseverance with this program is what makes me do a mental thumbing of the nose and a raspberry to those who knock us freeware developers versus payware.I have nothing against payware, wish I could afford more of it. But I have memories of past threads where there are those who have all but claimed that freeware will never measure up in comparison.Well, to those who do, tthhhhhbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb!!!Thanks Damian!It's been a privelege.Heather

Damian,Great stuff!A suggestion........Might you be able to add a variable for rain that automatically reduces vis to say 3 miles or so?Often the meters report vis at the standard 10sm and mention rain. But when its raining hard, its difficult to see 10sm.Am I right here or wrong? And if right, any chances?Thanks and again, great program!Michael
