ATIS: weather and Runways hardly ever match Pilotedge

ATIS: weather and Runways hardly ever match Pilotedge

Postby maxmoe » Sat Jan 26, 2019 11:55 pm

Flying pilotedge now for a few weeks and like it.

However, frequently (9/10 times) the instructions from ATC do not match the ATIS for an airport.

(X-plane 11.30).

How come? What ATIS source is pilotedge ATC using?

The ATIS in the sim that you're hearing is system-generated an in no way resembles the real world logic that is used to assign runways at those towered airports. It will frequently not match current real world operations.

There is a new fully integrated ATIS system that will be released in the near future. Hang tight, and in the mean time, ignore the sim-generated ATIS in terms of runway selection.
