CAVOK should be 21SM and not 6SM!

It seems that the METAR Code „CAVOK“ translates on IF airports into a standard 6SM weather pattern (i.e. gloomy fog). This makes no sense as CAVOK means excellent weather with great visibility and nothing to report!

This should be changed to 21SM…!

CAVOK is actually 10km minimum and 6SM is equal to 9,6km, so i’d say it’s pretty accurate :) Not 100% spot on, but 6SM is closer to 10km than 7SM which would be 11,2km.
