Winds aloft question

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hi. I am new to this product and find it excellent so far. The only problem I found is with winds aloft. It seems that this program just ads velocity to surface winds as I climb. WE all know in real world wind velocity changes with altitude, not just the speed. Is there a specific setting to use on fsuipc or does it not really download winds aloft like the Jepp wx that comes with fs2002. I should note I took off from AMS in NW 747-400 as NW068 bound to BOM. Any help much appreciated and Happy New Year!

Could it be that winds aloft outside the United States are simulated in the program? Watch for a fix for this in the future.
