Hi all.

Does ASN 2016 for FSX model thermal activity for soaring enthusiasts?

If so, what are the recommended settings? Live weather or historical?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Slugger,

Yes, AS16 does include terrain-based drafts and thermals. For more lift we recommend daytime higher temperatures of course, which means that your active time should be day time for the location you are soaring in. This may mean using Historical time depending on when you fly.

Hi All!

One of the best (easiest) airports to try your soaring skills
is Dillingham Field, on the northwest coast of Oahu in Hawaii.

Just west of the airfield, there is a ridge which provides
fairly consistent lift, with wind coming off the Pacific from
the north.

Enjoy.


Best,

Slugger
