  1. Cloud turbulence is nonexistent. Only turbulence I ever experienced are from terrain. Can’t wait for a fix or for a real weather addon because it kills immersion.
  2. This is probably the case yes. What mislead me was that the report was shown as « 5 minutes old. » It isn’t impossible that there are some technical issues behind this kind of lag.
  3. I think that you missed the point I wasn’t talking about MSFS but about Meteoblue. A 7 minutes old METAR from an international airport stating there are strong winds in the middle of a global warning for strong winds is hardly inaccurate. Meteoblue showing calm winds with a weather updated at the same time as the METAR, that’s unexpected inaccuracy. I’m not talking about forecasts here.
  4. Absolutely. I don’t trust forecast models. They are just helping in decision making. I was only pointing out that Windy was showing the obvious: strong winds. When there is a strong winds national alert a day before and all sorts of warnings about strong winds everywhere I was worried/surprised when I saw that Meteoblue was completely out of the loop.
  5. I’m sorry but giving me this intention is just so stupid. This is Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 forum and the sim uses Meteoblue data for its live weather. I’ve watched the promo video where they explain how they model the entire world weather accurately and it’s just awesome to watch. Now I remember that in the video they were saying they also used world METARs in their model and I was just pointing to the fact that LDDU airport had strong winds and Meteoblue was the only weather app out of 4 others I use that was showing calm winds. I thought this was problematic enough to address the issue. Edit: the weather was also updated at the same time as LDDU METAR when it showed 8kts winds instead of more than 20.
  6. Wasn’t planning to fly tonight, just checking METAR if that’s ok with you.
  7. Indeed now it does. Weather data was shown as updated at the same time as the METAR but it wasn’t accurate. Also if I look at the wind map it’s still not accurate...
  8. Just checking the iOS app and comparing datas: Most recent METAR at LDDU : LDDU 171900Z 04020KT 340V080 CAVOK 29/12 Q1011 TEMPO 03020G30KT So it says winds at 20kts gusting at 30kts. Now I launch my iOS Meteoblue app and it says winds at 24km/h. So the real winds are double to triple what Meteoblue shows. Windy that also uses forecast models shows winds at 18kts with gusts at 24kts so Windy is accurate. There is also an official alert by the Croatian weather forecasters for high winds. It’s even available in the iOS Weather app through weather.com Based on this, Meteoblue is proving to be absolutely inaccurate.
  9. Hello, I am used to fly multiplayer with a friend and, as we want to practice ATC together and both to buy Pilot2ATC, we are a bit frustrated because we can't here what the ATC says to each other. So our flights are usually punctuated by me or my friend asking "Did they answer? What did they say?" Of course there are always our readbacks but as we are noobs we sometimes take a "long" time to answer, and anyway it breaks a bit the immersion. We usually use Discord to talk to each other. I was wondering if there would be an elegant way, or just a workaround to be able to also share Pilot2ATC sound?
  10. Hi, In my experience MSFS doesn't import .pln waypoints and I can't even see all of them on the map. But I have found that if you type the name of the waypoints in the world map search bar, they exist and you can add them manually! This way you'll get all of them in your avionics.
  11. Hello, Discovering this awesome software. I was flying a VFR flight with clearance from Class C to Class C airports and when I was cleared to takeoff I was never asked to contact approach. Instead I was asked to contact ground but I was already in the air. When something like this happens what is the solution? Saving the plan, quitting, reloading? Then contacting approach directly? Or staying with Tower? Should I request the VFR clearance again? thanks a lot
  12. Thanks, I didn’t know about this! How do you activate this??
  13. Now that’s dramatic. It’s super easy to use. Just load airlines and download their flight plans with the one click tool.
