Weather diversions

Recommended Posts

I have recently started flying P3Dv4 with RC4 and Active sky. I set up Active sky to give thunderstorms, which are then picked up on my weather radar.

To try to avoid them, I request RC to allow a deviation. This is granted "deviate right or left". Then after a couple of minutes, I am hammered for being off course. I have tried requesting a "direct to" the next waypoint but the same result "are you showing yourself on the airways? I have you off course, fly ...... until...."

What is the correct procedure, so that RC understands?

I frequently request deviation for turbulence when flying Concorde to get around the slow climb rate. That's a vertical one of course. But it should be similar for a lateral deviation.

Press 9 then option 2 I think. 3 is the vertical deviation so I'm guessing 2 would be the lateral option.

That will work but for how long I'm not sure. Once within 50 from arrival it may not be possible as you will be descending and not far away from Approach.
