I can't work out the wind direction in an airport in Flight Simulator X while looking at the airport in map view. For example does 'Wind at 196°' mean that the wind is coming from 196° or is going to 196°?


The direction the wind is reported in tells you where the wind is coming from.


Via the ATIS you can get the information where the wind is coming from, I mostly use the airbus a320 and than I can make an estimate guess from where it is coming by using my GPS. And what it means if the say 'Wind at 196°'than it is coming towards you Cockpit link
