Perfect- will do- ta!

Just the sort of thing to get a nightly shot of PSX in before turning in :)

Update- Just flew the .SITU 3 times. First, landed safely, but in the weeds fully off the runway. Second, crashed and burned. Third time was the charm.... Survivable - but NOT pretty.

Thanks for this! It's this sort of thing that reminds me I am far from a RW 744 captain. We drone along for hours, getting fairly adept at button pushing, and tend to believe that we can really do this. Then something like this comes along, and reminds us that there's a reason that you want Douggie Milliren & Trevor Cox (and our very own Peter) up front.

Peter- I'd love to hear your comments re. this .SITU, and especially about if you experienced this sort of violent weather on anything but a very rare basis?

BTW- it wasn't just the 737 having issues... There's a great video of a KLM Asia 777 on YT...

Yes, I can do a passable job of carrying an iPad and strolling through the front- right into the coat closet, however, I am grateful for the true professionals when the WINDSHEAR warning goes off repeatedly AND I'M IN THE BACK! :-0

I hope this starts a SITU trend.... GOOD STUFF!


Best- C

Good evening guys!

Cooper- real world skippers will sometimes simply avoid to get caught in such violent weather in the first place. That's also an important part of airmanship! :)
A few KLM aircraft indeed diverted to Brussels on the 25th due to excessive winds (amongst them 2 B747-400s). I saw both Jumbo's take off back to AMS after the winds calmed down...

With the help of flightradar24 and ogimet I recreated a detailed situ for your enjoyment.
While the situ of our friend United744 posted above concentrates on the final approach itself, this one will put you at the beginning of the STAR to AMS at the peak of the storm.

Take command of KLM flight 862 operated that day by PH-BFP from Narita to Amsterdam. Approaching ARTIP you asked ATC to enter the hold to evaluate the weather and your options. Will you press on to your destination or will you divert to a nearby airport??

Download the situ HERE. Drop the file in your PSX situations folder.

Curious to know how the real KLM crew did it? Take a look on flightaware. ;)

Regards,
Sylvain

Thanks for that situ, Sylvain. I tried the approach about a dozen times and I have never experienced a microburst in real life that caused a 20-degree bank in less than a second followed by a 40+ knot airspeed loss, but maybe I'm just lucky. That's brutal.

Even using 173 knots for the target and expecting the big shear, the red worm of death crept dangerously close. I wasn't satisfied with any of my landings on this situ.

Sylvain-

Thanks for creating that SITU. I will DL and fly this weekend. Absolutely, there's no substitute for EXPERIENCED airmanship- which is why seasoned skippers are so valuable.... especially when you're sitting behind them....

"Fixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man" could apply... or better yet, "Oh God, thy sea is so great and my boat is so small" or even, "There are old pilots, and bold pilots, but no old, bold pilots" :)

I still find that the frequency and intensity of windshear events in PSX a bit overdone
Using this situ, many times, I found it always generated a winshear event, and a severe one ! I believe there is some randomness in the weather engine, but in as far as these events are concerned, it certainly looks a bit biased :-)
.


I forgot to check that it was set at 100% prob for microburst on the SITU... ( sorry... )

Also, wing rocking under such circumstances, specially when CBs are reported in the vicinity of the airfield is also, IMO, overdone, but I a not an airline pilot...

The rate at which my Jumbo rocks it's wings reminds me more of an Extra 300 than a 280 ton aircraft. I find it strange... OTOH the effects in yaw are almost nill.

Low frequency turbulence, as felt IRL under most circumstances, is also something I can't "feel" in PSX, maybe because I do not have the proper hardware :roll:

The frequency depends on what you select on the weather page. When you enter random=50% the chance is 50:50. If you think this is overdone, just enter 1%.

The intensity is not overdone. See real-life accidents and incidents.

An Extra 300? Come on, this is nonsense. Perhaps your time acceleration slider is set to 8 :-)

PSX is a software. If you need tactile hardware, try this: http://www.thebuttkicker.com/simulation-kit (just kidding, don't try it)

Hardy,

indeed Microburts prob was set at 100% in that EHAM situ - I forgot to check that ... Oops!

Buttkicker, a simmer friend had one of those, plus huge columns - poor neighbours... :-)

I only get one wind shear event during the situ I posted above (though I didn't try flying a go-around). I'm sure the box says "probability" of wind shear, so to ensure it is encountered on approach, I set it to 100%.

That's intentional. The function on the Weather page is used to "arm" one windshear encounter (like in the full flight simulators). The windshear will start when the aircraft descends through the height entered in the "Outflow top" edit box. When "Random" is used, all parameters (and the trigger) are set at random internally.

Also during take-off the armed windshear will occur only once (after lift-off).

This function is designed for really dangerous windshears only, not to design usual turbulence. It's designed to demonstrate windshear alerts and to practise go-arounds.

In that case I'm not sure why jcomm is saying that the *frequency* of wind shear is "overdone". Watching a few videos from the weekend, aircraft were encountering I think mostly mechanical wind shear. There is an A330 really spooling up just before touchdown, and another aircraft drops a wing, touching down at quite a roll angle at the last moment.

It's not overdone, as I corrected in post #11 above :-)
