Idea for a new utility

Recommended Posts

Guest BobL

During my flight planning, I've been struggling to match my flight planned course with the available weather stations inside FS and find I am having great difficulty getting a good match so I have an idea for a utility for one of the very talented programmers here:Before I start: From inside flight sim 2002, go here: World/Weather and then set the global/local radio button to local.Now here's my idea: Develop some kind of module or driver that would allow us to select a FS flight plan and over lay that flight planned course on top of the map view presented in the World/Weather/Local map. That way, we could see the valid FS Metar stations that our flight would be affected by. We could then go to NOAA to see the METAR and TAF for those before we takeoff. It would, of course, need to be compatible with the external wx programs like Meteo but it would be great help to be able to load our flight plan and see the enroute wx stations all along the planned route.I tried to use INFOMETAR but it's just not user friendly. It doesn't have the MS FS world in it. Well, it's an idea anyway. Any takers??BobL
