Little circle below the airport's ICAO

You see in the picture the little blue circle below the airport’s ICAO, I was wondering, why is it green sometimes, why sometimes it is entirely blue and mainly, why sometimes does it have a red circle in it?Is it because there is a NOTAM about a terminal’s malfunctioning or something like that?

Hello,

The colour of the airport dot represents the current METAR conditions at the airport.

The colour codes for METARs in Infinite Flight are as follows:

  • Green: VFR (Visual Flight Rules) - Visibility more than 5 miles and ceiling above 3,000 feet.

  • Blue: MVFR (Marginal VFR) - Visibility between 3 to 5 miles and ceiling between 1,000 to 3,000 feet.

  • Orange: IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) - Visibility between 1 to 3 miles, and ceiling between 500 to 1,000 feet.

  • Red: LIFR (Low IFR) - Visibility below 1 mile and ceiling below 500 feet.

I hope this answers your question and provides some clarity. Let us know if you have any questions!
