I'm not too sure what you mean by deal with turbulence. Can you be a bit more specific?

Fly through it until it goes away, that is if you're descending or ascending, if you're flight straight and level try ascending or descending 1000 or so feet, thats what I usually do.

Some panels have buttons that can disable or turn on the seat belt sign. Also if you have FS Passengers, there is a command to turn it off or on manually or letting the air hostess to do it automatically, depending on what your settings are. Wink

When I get turbulance I fly straight through the middle because it is fun and doesn't really affect huge aircraft.

to reduce turbulance, you can decrease power. that normally works for me

Slow your aircraft down to its rough air penetration speed

..well if you get airsick, try and fly around the gusty air pocket.. but it will cost you time. Wink Laughing

eh.. but on a serious note.. fly straight through it, your average turbulence will do nothing more than make your ride a bit bumpier. Wink Cool

(and by average, I mean, not hurricane-force winds, lol Fear )

If you're flying through turbulent areas, is it advisable to cruise high or low, cause I had a bad experience with this cause whilst flying the Boeing 737-400 default, I was reaching cruising altitude (FL330) when suddenly the speed started decreasing really fast due to winds and I stalled at that altitude and had to go back down to FL290 and maintain that. Was pretty annoying

well, to tell the truth, i am always try to slow down and its working, then about altitude u better go descent in 1000ft and, by the wayturn on the seatbell sign, and give the masks to the passnengers, that they wont feel bad lol. have a good voyage !!

In the past i would have been non-aware that there was turbalance ahead, so i would have just flew through it. Now i have purchased AOG - COMMON WEATHER RADAR (Its a weather radar) i can detect turbalance, storms, ice and rain ahead and i can climb or descend. Its worth buying it.
