When creating your report the required items are:

  • UA or UUA (Only report a UUA if SEV or EXTRM turbulence is encountered or, airspeed fluctuations of 10 kts or more.

  • /TM (Time: Use ZULU Time Sim in the bottom toolbar)

  • /FL (Altitude)

  • /TP (Aircraft Type)

  • /WV (Wind Velocity)

Example Raw: UA /OV KDEN15.6/TM 0310/FL370/TP B789/WV300098

Notes:

  • This thread is strictly for reporting the weather on your flight at the given location of your report.

  • Important: A PIREP is only valid for the time it was issued. There is no guarantee that the reported conditions will remain the same for a given period of time.

  • This is not a substitute to checking the weather for your planned route of flight. Use this as additional information to assist you in getting a better overall picture of what the weather is like.
