Weather down

Anyone have weather issues on expert? I have restarted my device

This issue is usually only temporary and resolves itself after a while. If it remains for a longer time period, turning on “Flight mode” on your device for 30 seconds could resolve the issue. If it still remains red and could become a problem for your during your flight, feel free to post a topic in #support or send an e-mail to for further assistance.

Yeah I have some issues on my end as well. Tried restarting internet to no avail

In that case the service is probably down. But I would need moderator confirmation on that.

Having winds aloft as well. Best thing to do is wait for the top of the hour to roll by.

If not, we’ll just have to pray for our landings 😂


Yes. Weather is down. A microburst has hit the data servers and are no longer providing us live winds aloft. Should… keyword SHOULD resolve itself on its own after some time has passed.


@DeerCrusher what is a microburst?

A microburst is a downdraft (sinking air) in a thunderstorm that is less than 2.5 miles in scale. Some microbursts can pose a threat to life and property, but all microbursts pose a significant threat to aviation.


Science lesson. Try the Google. 😁
