Flight Profile

Post by Kyprianos Biris » Sat Nov 02, 2013 8:34 am

Dear Michal for real flight weather (forecast) profile analysis I am using a tool called GRAMET and it proved quite useful when I had to cross the Alps with mild IMC in some recent GA flights.
One of the places where it is available is OGIMET spain website.

http://www.ogimet.com/gramet_aero.phtml.en

It is based on the GFS world weather model which is publicly available (I think).
Until now it can only use major airport ICAO codes as waypoints.

Try for a example LSGG_LIMC to see how the alps are displayed.
It reminded me the more basic VROUTE flight profile display in fuel planning tab.

What I like most (apart from the weather features) is the daylight transition display in the color of the sky if the flight happens to be during sunset or sunrise.

Give it a try to see how its displayed.

Maybe something like this could be displayed in VROUTE as well, not only in the FUEL planning but also the WAYPOINTS tab.

Kyp,

i'm impressed how good the tool is. I use GFS as well, although there's something like 200 parameters and some things I just don't know where to find among them.

Indeed, adding SR/SS to waypoints as well as to flight profile seems simple enough to program. I'll see what I can do...
