Wind direction

Recommended Posts

Hi their, when the winds are forcast at say 273@13 this means that they are blowing FROM 273 degrees at 13 kts right? Therfore at Atlanta runways 27R/L or 26R/L would be in use? I set the winds at 273/13 tonight specifically so that I would be vectored to land on a runway 27 or 26 (because I only have a copy of the westerly plates). Instead I was sent round to 09L. Whats the deal? A bug in FS or have I missed somthing. I rechecked the weather with ATIS and it confirmed 273/13.Thanks

Hi there,yes, it would appear that there is a bug in FS as far as KATL is concerned. I suspect it's a similar thing as happens at EGLL, i.e. the FS weather area for KATL does not cover the entire airport, so you'll have different weather at the point FS uses to determine runway use. Basically you'll have to set the winds to blow from 270 degrees for all areas surrounding the airport. Hope this helps,Cheers,Gosta.
