Since last time i flight more often(and crash less... )i start searching the whole thing a little deeper.
This probably could cause a load of silly questions but im depending on your patience and good willing in order to avoid bricks falling on my head...
The question for today is the following.As most of you know when you hit Shift + Z one or two times you get some infos about your coordinates,speed,fuel, and wind.And here is the question.
I see this(example)
Wind 240/41 mag
If i can understand right 240 referring to wind direction but i cant understand 41mag.Any explanation will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Take a look at this
Scroll down and you will see a link called MAG
Wind 240/41 mag means that the wind is blowing at 240 degrees and is 41Kts. Magnetic simply refers to the way in which the heading is being obtained, as opposed to true heading.
Wind direction is 240 degrees magnetic at 41 knots.
They just tacked on the fact that the direction is based on magnetic north at the end of the wind information.
Thanks a lot for your quick responces and your clear answers Gents.
No probs Mr GM
