How to use the weather radar in PMDG 737 NGX for MSFS



How to use the weather radar in PMDG 737 NGX for MSFS




The PMDG 737 NGX is one of the most realistic and popular add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS). It features a fully functional weather radar that can display precipitation, turbulence, and windshear around the aircraft. However, some users may not be familiar with how to operate the weather radar or what it can do. In this article, we will explain how to use the weather radar in PMDG 737 NGX for MSFS and what benefits it can bring to your flight experience.


What is the weather radar?




The weather radar is a device that uses radio waves to detect and display the presence and intensity of precipitation, such as rain, snow, hail, or sleet. It can also indicate areas of turbulence and windshear, which are sudden changes in wind speed or direction that can affect the aircraft's performance and safety. The weather radar can help pilots avoid flying into adverse weather conditions that could damage the aircraft or cause discomfort to passengers.

How to activate the weather radar?




To activate the weather radar in PMDG 737 NGX for MSFS, you need to follow these steps:


  • Turn on the avionics master switch on the overhead panel.



  • Select the EFIS control panel on the glareshield and press the WXR button to display the weather radar on the navigation display (ND).



  • Adjust the range knob on the EFIS control panel to set the desired distance for the weather radar display. The range can be from 5 to 320 nautical miles.



  • Adjust the tilt knob on the EFIS control panel to set the desired angle for the weather radar antenna. The tilt can be from -15Â to +15Â. A positive tilt means that the antenna is pointing up, while a negative tilt means that it is pointing down.



  • Use the mode selector on the EFIS control panel to choose between AUTO and MAN modes. In AUTO mode, the weather radar will automatically adjust the tilt and gain settings based on the aircraft's altitude and range. In MAN mode, you can manually adjust these settings using the tilt and gain knobs.



  • Use the gain knob on the EFIS control panel to adjust the sensitivity of the weather radar. The gain can be from -3 to +3. A higher gain means that more echoes will be displayed, while a lower gain means that fewer echoes will be displayed.



How to interpret the weather radar display?




The weather radar display on the ND shows different colors and symbols to indicate different levels of precipitation and turbulence. Here is what they mean:


  • Green: Light precipitation or turbulence. No significant threat to aircraft.



  • Yellow: Moderate precipitation or turbulence. Caution advised.



  • Red: Heavy precipitation or turbulence. Avoid if possible.



  • Magenta: Extreme precipitation or turbulence. Severe threat to aircraft. Do not enter.



  • Cyan: Windshear. Sudden change in wind speed or direction. Avoid if possible.



  • White: Ground clutter. False echoes caused by terrain or buildings. Ignore.



The weather radar display also shows some additional information, such as:


  • The range ring: A circle that shows the selected range for the weather radar display.



  • The tilt indicator: A line that shows the selected tilt angle for the weather radar antenna.



  • The heading bug: A triangle that shows the selected heading for the autopilot.



  • The flight plan: A line that shows the planned route for the flight.



  • The waypoints: Symbols that show the names and locations of waypoints along the flight plan.



How to use the weather radar effectively?




To use the weather radar effectively in PMDG 737 NGX for MSFS, you need to consider some tips and best practices:


  • Use a suitable range for your flight phase and situation. For example, use a shorter range for takeoff and landing, and a longer range for cruise and en route.



Use a suitable tilt angle for your altitude and terrain. For example, use a positive tilt for 0efd9a6b88
