Default Wind

Recommended Posts

Is it possible in FS9 to set a default wind speed and direction that will apply to all flights?

You mean like setting it up manually, then every subsequent flight having the same wind? Could you create a flight with the wind characteristics you want, then save it as default and it still be there?I've never tried that...it should work...someone correct me. :)-Jeremy BurchThe Ozark Dogfighter http://forums.avsim.net/images/wedge.gifHappy Flying!Engine Failure: A condition which occurs when all fuel tanks mysteriously become filled with air.Firewall: Section of the aircraft specially designed to let heat and smoke enter the cockpit.Lean Mixture: Nonalcoholic beer

What Jeremy suggests works great. I always like a little chop in my flights, and I usually augment the turbulence with a gusty wind setting of say, 0 to ten knots. Those settings are saved in my default flight, and they "follow" me unless I use real weather, which of course overrides them.-John

Thanks you bopth. I'll try it.The reason is that the prevailing wind in the UK is south-westerly so that, even in no wind conditions, there is a tendency to take-off and land in that direction - noise abatement procedures excepted. In no wind conditions FS9 appears to chose the other direction for the default runway.
