Recommended Posts

Guest rici

Hi there,Can anyone tell me were I can:a) Find real world weather reports and predictions so that I have as much WX info that real airline pilots do for my longhaul flights and,:( Which flight planning software do you recomend? It must be able to show me airways, be able to create waypoints anyware I want them (for NAT PLOTS) and must be able to export this to Radar Contact. Fuel predictions would be great as well but they MUST be accurate!!!!!!Also, being easy to use would be a bonus, and if the printouts looked professional that would be great also!Thanks for your helpric

www.pmflightplanner.com is the best free one that I've seen. www.aviationweather.gov will give just about everything you could in terms of U.S. weather.PMflightplanner will build you a route if given the right info, such as SID/STAR and/or entry point. I hope I helped!
