Hi, as far as I know, GoodWay doesn't take winds aloft into account when creating a flight plan... it only generates a route. Am I wrong? Are there any flight planners for X-Plane that take winds into account?

Go and grab a plugin called XPUIPC and drop it in the xplane/plugins folder.Then you can continue to use FSCommander for flight planning and moving map. (Which rocks btw)It can't read the xplane database yet, but that might come in a later version. Just use the fsx or fs2004 database instead - that mostly matches xplane (although I have sat on a grass strip that wasnt in that database :) )EDIT: FSWidgets make a free google maps moving map plugin if thats all you need: http://fswidgets.com/shop/download_files.php#gmapxplane
