Wind component effect on FMS calculations.


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

During my last flight with CRJ on MSFS, I tried to take a deeper look at the wind effect on calculations and it looks like nothing happens when updating the values.

 

I updated the CLB, CRZ and DES component, and for example, the FOD was always the same, even switching wind component on the FMS from T90 to H90.

 

Could anyone confirm the same behavior?

 

Regards,

It's about the calculations, the fms does not calculate an new fuel prediction on destination regardless of the windfactor that is entered in the fms.

Exactly.

Here, the problem isn't about the "live" wind component, but the "computed" one based on data inserted in the FMS.
