AviationWeather.gov URL change and also no departure charts for Paris


Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm gettting errors in the log for Metars and Tafs. It seems the URL has changed such that https://aviationweather.gov/adds/dataserver_current/httpparam?dataSource=metars&requestType=retrieve&format=xml&stationString=LFPG&hoursBeforeNow=2  would now become https://aviationweather.gov/cgi-bin/data/dataserver.php?dataSource=metars&.httpparam?dataSource=metars&requestType=retrieve&format=xml&stationString=LFPG&hoursBeforeNow=2 Possibly a URL change for Paris LFPG departure charts as well. A very quick test got me Glasgow departure charts, but no Paris ones.

I'm not sure why the TBM900 is trying to download Metars and Tafs anyway. Am I losing any functionality with the denied request from that URL? I thought the weather radar just used the sim weather anyway. I'm using the Noaa weather plugin as it is, but tbf I haven't even really looked at the weather radar. I'm guessing that's whats trying to connect to the Aviationweather site.

Cheers for a great aircraft despite these very small gripes.
