Hi,

That's an interesting question. I think the sim knows when you are inside the cockpit based on the mode of the simulation, I don't think the model has specific information for that. Now that makes me wonder what the sim would do if you fly an aircraft with an open cockpit :)

I think it would probably use the same protocol as the fsx trike. If I remember it simulates rain on pilot goggles in the same mannner as a cockpit screen

yes, there a SimConnect that can find out where view you are in.
in SDK about: SimConnect_SubscribeToSystemEvent and view in the General System Event Name column.
