When I file a flight plan within AS16's own interface - does that result in AS16 downloading the current METARS for all stations from DEP to ARR?


In other words - if I were to disconnect from the web after a few minutes of starting the flight, go away, have a sandwich maybe a quick nap (we're talking Long Haul here)  - when I came back would the A/C be flying through the previously downloaded METAR or just clear skies because AS16 has dropped the connection.


Is that the purpose of AS16 having its own Flight Planner - or one of them.

Hi Jim,

Yes exactly, METARS for the entire route and surrounding areas will be loaded into the sim when you generate or load a flight plan.  This is the major reason HiFi has included this option.  There is currently no option even in ASP4 to use the app offline as ActiveSky has been designed to provide dynamic weather changes.  Combined with AS16, ASCA (ActiveSky Cloud Art) provides minute by minute texture and color matching based on time, location, season and makes these changes dynamically without having to reload the sim.
