Wind Data aka 777 style? ;)

Recommended Posts

Topic says it all but are we likely to see the ability to import wind data from PFPX or active sky on the 737?  Would be neat as i do more start/stop flying with the 737 than the longer flights of the 777.

I'm not sure if the 737 FMC has the wind request option in real life. However, if it does, this would be a nice feature to have, especially for those longer flights.

Wind data also known as 777 style...? Hmm...sounds like an unnecessary acronym got in there...

 

Anyway, as far as I know the 737 is data uplink capable.  As such, it could be realistic to simulate it.  I can't remember if anyone mentioned whether it would be in the SP2 for the NGX, though.

737 is perfectly capable of accepting datalink messages and populating the FMC with winds, takeoff data and whatnot.

 

I say this is a candidate for SP2.

Highly likely SP2 will have it among other enhancements the 777 has.

There is a possibly to set the cruise wind in the init page (supose it should be the expected overage wind on route), is the FMC using that info for anything or is it just a "dummy" in the present version then?

That wind is for initial calc of performance, fuel, arrival time, etc., but it won't be as accurate as what the wind uplink can provide.

737 is data uplink capable.

Is the data uplink feature planned for the 737NGX?

Do you have more info?

I would really like to see this in the 737NGX!

 

Kind regards Robert

Would be nice with ACARS to  :rolleyes: How awesome wouldn't it be if it worked with TOPCAT? And it would be nice to be able to use CPDLC.

What Ryan said.

 

Honestly, the next wave of NGX updates are pretty far out, as we're really working hard on the 744/8 and DC6. We'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
