Average winds on different flightlevels

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

I was wondering if it's currently possible to display the average winds on certain flightlevels on the OFP. 

For instance, KLM shows the AVGW on their OFP's for three different flightlevels. On the real OFP I have, they use FL310, FL200 and FL100. The planned cruising level for the particular flight the OFP was made for, was FL380. (Kristiansand to Amsterdam)

 

I don't know for sure how the three flightlevels are chosen, but since we can choose the altitude of the windcharts we want to include in the OFP generated by PFPX, I thought it would be a neat feature to have. So incase I've missed a certain code in the new Flightplan Formatting guide 2.0, please let me know what code I can use to display the average wind on a certain FL/ ALT. If it's not possible, I'd like to take this opportunity to request this feature.

 

Many thanks,

Stefan

Stefan,

 

There's usually a wind breakdown towards the end of the plan that shows the wind speed and direction at everywaypoint over 3 or 4 altitudes. For examplse see below.  However if you want an average wind per Flight Level then currently I do not believe that its possible to do that.

 

Easyjet Example

 

540N                    4250N                    NOSID             
N4500.0                  N4200.0                  N3406.5
W04000.0                 W05000.0                 W06854.8
FL380  329/053 -53       FL380  312/047 -52       FL390  248/020 -55
FL360  330/055 -51       FL360  310/044 -47       FL370  248/021 -50
FL340  330/058 -49       FL340  307/041 -42       FL350  247/022 -44
FL320  331/056 -44       FL320  303/037 -38       FL330  247/023 -39
FL300  331/053 -39       FL300  297/033 -33       FL310  246/024 -34
