I was trying one of Charles Wood's practice flights--an early one in the sequence, from The Gabreski on Long Island to Meriden, CT, to practice flying to an on-field NDB in windy conditions. I found that when I calculated a WCA and flew that heading with the wind aloft set to the 310/30 suggested, I had overcompensated by a wide margin.
Wood notes that FS 2000/02 spec wind direction in true, not magnetic, direction. The FS9 learning center article on weather, however, is a little unclear on this point. Does Wood's description apply to FS9 as well as the previous versions, i.e., wind settings are in true, not magnetic, directions?
