Fluctuating wind direction and magnitude (FL330)

Recommended Posts

Guest dogdog1985

I was flying A343 at FL330, the wind was fluctuating from 259/118(Tail) to 320/28(Head), as it kept changing, sometimes the A/C over-speed, finally the A/C overstessed when the wind JUMP to 330/49.So what should I do in the fluctuating condition

Patrick, there are two things you can do but it does require you to have either or both of FSUIPC (registered) and Activesky6.5.In registered FSUIPC go to the winds page and the left pane is about smoothing. I have changed the wind changes near the aircraft to be 5 knots per second (so my figures from top to bottom) are 5 - 0 - 0. This seems OK for me but you will need to do some experimenting. On the same page you can also eliminate gusts in upper level winds etc.In Activesky6.5 you can also set wind options and ensure that it takes account of FSUIPC's wind smoothing. There are lots of other wind options as well.If you don't have registered FSUIPC or Activesky6.5 I don't think there is much you can do. I don't think unregistered FSUIPC allows you to do the wind smoothing.Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk
