How will Hurricanes Work in IF?

This is interesting…

Hurricanes are structured to where they have different parts of the storm that have different parts of weather. Now that we know Global will be introduced, the weather of the world will play a bigger part in our flying.

The eyeball is the strongest part of a hurricane. It is the part where the fastest winds rotate, and does the most damage in a hurricane. The eye is the absolute calmest part of the storm where nothing goes on. Yes, the winds are at 0 knots in the eye.

If a very structured Cat 4 were to spawn in the Atlantic Ocean, would Infinite Flights weather data be accurate enough to display every aspect of a hurricane?

If we get dynamic weather, yes.

Rain doesn’t affect an aircraft…

Hail, tornadoes, etc.

Hail only really associates with tornadoes, and tornadoes come sometimes with hurricanes. But you don’t need dynamic weather for tornadoes.

Would be cool to see a swirling vortex though 🌪🌪🌪

Big winds like 100kts

There’s hail in far more storms than you think, hail only gets crazy large with storms supporting strong updrafts which is part of what is needed for a tornado.

Insanely heavy rain can cause engines to stall. Airplanes also don’t like hail obviously as seen below from a few weeks ago at work.

I guess planes have bullet proof glass if they could survive flying in a hail storm.

No, not exactly.

Shatter proof?

That is not true sorry engines are tested to ingest more water than is possible from any known rain storm.

There have been incidents resulting in both engines flaming out due to water. TACA 110 comes to mind which was a B733.

very old aircraft name a single aircraft in IF where this would happen?

The 737-300s are not that old, I still see them daily at work.

No, not very cool at all.

Could result in an inflight breakup.

1: Originally Produced in 1984

2: Out of Production in 2000 meaning that the youngest aircraft is nearly at best bets nearly 17. So tell me that is not old.
