Will FS2004 ATC know what the weather is?

Recommended Posts

I did an IFR flight into a non-ILS airport yesterday with the weather set to overcast down to a base of 1000 feet. The ATC told me to expect a visual approach , vectored me to an approximate entry point , took me down to 2000 feet and then asked me if I had the airport visual. Of course, I didn't -- so there my flight had to end IFR as the ATC would not allow me to go any lower and kept on asking me if I had visual everytime I told them that I didn't.Barry

hi,Off the microsoft site "Enhanced traffic sequencing system " does that mean Ai aircraft wont try to land on top of each other or sort of race each other or you to the active runway? Will Atc make aircraft fly holds or hold certain speeds so they don't get to close on final? If thats true I can't wait!!!! :DAndrew

Heck, I'd be happy if ATC didn't ask me if I had a visual on an aircraft 6,000 feet above my and flying in the opposite direction.(But, they can see me, of course. Yeah, sure. Maybe their tailgunner can.)Andrew
