Then download the real world weather and fly around Sydney (ie YSSY, YSBK, YSCN or YHOX). I tuned into the real ATIS at Sydney terminal this morning and the surface winds were 30 - 50 knots. Near where I live I understand a few houses are debating whether to keep their roofs or not. So I downloaded the real world weather and the surface winds were 37 knots at YSSY, 29 knots at YSBK and 26 knots at YSCN. It might not be the worst conditions, but this sort of wind is unusual..a bit early for Winter as usually our windiest days are during Spring.
