I note that AS always refers to wind direction in "true" terms eg. the other day i had at KJFK 132degrees true from AS. So is it correct that if I go to KJFK in FS9 and press SHIFT-Z I will see the wind as 145 degrees "magnetic" ?Equally at EGLL I get 70 true from AS , and FS9 shows this as 75 magnetic.I may be stupid but I have only just noticed this !!!
