No turbulence since the release of 20.3

Hello everyone.

I am sorry if this is a known issue but I said that I’d say it because it’s better to be safe than sorry.

First Incident
Since the release of update 20.3, I have had no turbulence whatsoever. I realised the issue about a week ago when I was flying into and the winds were 170@27G40 and the runway heading was 160. I was expecting to have quite heavy turbulence but to my surprise the aircraft was perfectly stable. I was really confused but I decided to let it slip and fly a different route to see if it was just the airport that I was at.

Second incident
Today I was flying EINN-EGLL and it was quite windy at FL310. The wind was crosswind at 90 knots and again, the plane was experiencing no turbulence. This time I was convinced that there was a bug so I have decided to put it up here.

To be honest I have done more than 2 flights since the release of 20.3 but they were all in the new 757 so I just ignored it. Since these 2 flights were not in the 757, it has confirmed for me that it is not just in the 757. These flights were carried out in the E190 from ENBO-ENBR and the A320 from EINN-EGLL. I have also asked people in a VA and they have the same issue as me.
Once again if this is a duplicate I apologise but just in case I said I’d post it. Thank you


I think your correct it is a bug hopefully a dev notices

This issue has been discussed here and we are aware that the turbulence factor seems to be off.

However, strong winds does not necessarily mean that you should encounter turbulence - @LordZakCreaser


Same. I am flying KMIA-KJFK and winds are 67kts from the west

Thank you, I wasn’t aware of that topic

Again, winds & turbulence are two different things ;)

I am experiencing it on other aircraft aswell, not just the 757

If you take a moment and skim through the various posts in the topic, you’ll see that it’s been adressed :)
Which is why i said;

That obviously affects all the aircraft :)


Same here, no turbulence since the patch. I love turbulence. It adds life to the flight.

Agree, the amount of heavy wind change during APP into KJFK was not represented by turbulence as before the update

I did a flight from Austin TX to Heathrow, and did cross a very very light turbulence zone over the Atlantic

i have flown about 14 flights since patch, no turbulence and i went on to look for it. this is with 6 different aircraft.

Schyllberg have stated on several occasions he is fully aware of this issue & he is looking into it. Until then we just wait. I reckon there’ll be an update on IF to fix this problem as I have noticed myself in my recent flights theres no/little turbulence since 20.3 update.

Yeah, i am from the east coast, just fly from KBOS to KLGA, if there is no turbulence there, something is wrong lol.
