Wind Shear simulation w/ActiveSky 6.5

Recommended Posts

Hi All,Question to the ActiveSky developers:My understanding is that a Wind shear is a sudden change in wind direcion and/or speed causing an aircraft a sudden drop in altitude due to the effects the winds have in the aerodynamics of the plane, correct?Does ActiveSky 6.5 simulates low level wind shears during takeoff/landing? if so, does the FSUIPC wind smoothing option prevents the windshear to occur thus conflicting with this ActiveSky simulated phenomena? (assuming ActiveSky simulates the windshear of course)

Not a team member but...No windshear simulation occurs with ASv6.5, only wake turbulence to my knowledge as part of wind disturbance simulation, along with standard turbulence. ASA is the first AS version I've seen mention simulation of WS, thermals and ridge lift.If you are having trouble on take-off and landing with rough turbulence and possible lose of control, then it's the wake turbulence and sometimes it's best to leave it off in some planes as it has a tendancy to cause more problems if not.
