IFR pilot's take on clouds in v5

Recommended Posts

4.5 was all around a very solid sim. But I’m willing to deal with all the inconveniences of V5 simply for TrueSky. Xplane might have better default ga physics, but it’s hard to argue with a nice A2A plane in ifr conditions in V5...

Just did my first hard IFR flight in v5 HF2, I still can't get over how immersive IFR flight is in v5 (talking w/ EA). Flew to my home real-life aerodrome, flew the ILS, went missed, did the hold, flew the second approach and landed. Just an absolutely magnificent IFR experience.

You aren't in a bubble within the clouds with 15 feet of clear air around you in every direction, as in v4. In v5 you are IN the clouds. It's just amazing.

Yes, you nailed it. Add VR to the mix, and the experience with the clouds is incredibly immersive. 

EA and A2A are a great combination.

I vey much agree. V4.5 was really good, especially with some of the weather and shader add-ons, sceneries, aircraft, etc. It was also a good IFR experience in light GA aircraft. V5 just blows it out of the water with TrueSky. It is absolutely amazing.
