Its already there if I'm thinking what your thinking.  Its in the introductory manual on how to use Activesky 2012 to create a text file of enroute winds and put them into the wx folder in the PMDG directory.

 

Just flew KIAD - KSFO and it worked flawlessly even after takeoff.  Updated all winds for all levels and waypoints in the FMC automatically.

Will we see an implementation of these facilities in PMDG777X soon?

 

Not sure if you've been following the forum lately, but this is already implemented...

 

Intro manual  :wink:

I was meaning the PFPX OFP and en route winds forecasts.

 

Probably not.  I think their angle is to establish a standard format to allow the various developers to adapt to it.  Trying to adapt every single format into the one program would be labor prohibitive.

 

It's like the route format...the various programs output a file format that the PMDG aircraft can read, not the other way around.
