Hi,

Is there a plane on which a weather radar works ?

Any aircraft using Gijs' ND framework can also use its MapStructure WXR layer (AW specific), which is the same back-end used by the map-canvas.xml dialog.

Apart from that, omega95 implemented a non-MapStructure WXR layer using online data, which won't match your fgfs weather obviously.

for details, refer to the wiki and the corresponding forum topics linked there

Thanks for your reply.

I'm working on the Citation X. So, I will proceed step by step by replacing first the existing nav display by the Gijs' ND framework and then have a look to the MapStructure WXR layer.
