I think he maybe getting his RWY assigned a long way out using an Addon package. Hence the Static winds are still in force. Hopefully, I have an idea that might cure this but need time to test it.

No worries Stephen, I was just stating the observance from the flight. The recovery altitude is now at 19,000 though I have tried higher and it doesn't matter, the static winds stay on until I'm down to around 15,000ft. The ATC I am using is standard FSX and right around 90nm out I'm getting runway info from ATC.

OK, I will have a go at the mod soon, you can be the guinea pig to test the beta.

Many thanks, I will check it out. Looks like as soon as it found an FSX station MOU it didn't bother checking the navaids.

Problem with identifying MOU above has now been corrected and beta 3.03.4 has been posted.
 
Peterbread2 ... you can try out the new beta which includes the destination update mods.

Don't understand your comment. Download, uninstall and install the new beta 3.03.4 and your LFPB MOU LFLL flight plan should identify the nearest French MOU Navaid. It will then attempt to locate the four nearest Met stations to MOU and add any active stations to your Flight Plan En Route Weather Reports.

I have just been using it. You have to click on Update Weather after entering your Flight Plan, and must have FSX running.

I have just run up the new beta with FSX, entered the LFPB MOU LFLL flight plan, updated the weather (Weather Update button), checked the FP En Route weather reports etc. with no problem.

One thing where I'm not 100% sure and would like to ask about, when I'm about to enter the cruise wind into the FMC preparing my flight on the ACT PERF INIT page what value would be the most realistic/correct value to put in?
 
Now for instance I'm preparing a short flight EFHK-ESSA using the route RUNEN N872 XILAN so I've entered EFHK RUNEN N872 XILAN ESSA in the flight plan field in Opus and when I then bring up the Opus report inside FSX and choose Flight Plan En Route Weather Reports should I then preferrably click on one of the waypoint somewhere approx in the middle of my route and then use the Cruise value found on line 2 which in my case reads 231/44 for this specific flight or would using some other value in the report be a better choice?

You can use the Cruise in the En Route report, that will always show you the expected wind direction, speed and SAT for your cruise altitude at the location of the Nav point. If the Nav point is outside the current weather map, the current beta extracts the GRIB data forecast for that location on the globe. If it is currently on the weather map then it shows the cruise data used in the map and injected into FSX.

You shouldn't be able to go wrong now because if you display the Destination report and the destination is outside the map area then you will get the NO METAR message. Its only in the En Route report that the additional met report will be decoded and displayed.

You can check and refine your entry once the Destination gets in range and appears on the weather map. Which should be at about 400 mile range.
