With the new Real Environment Extreme, there is a facility to build flight plans directly using the built in weather program.
Unfortunately, it does not give the opportunity to save in any other format than FSX .pln. There are also a few other things missing,
so I still need FSBuild and FSMeteo.
Is there a way to import .pln files into FSB and then export to PMDG? I need the fuel and time stats as well.
If it could import, would it read the weather data though?

There is not a way to import FSX .pln files, only FS9.

Unfortunately you are the first person to ask about this feature since the release of FSX, so it was never implemented.

Regards.

That makes me the second. It would be a useful feature - it cannot be done in FSC either.

The reason? Mainly for plotting VFR routings.

The Navigation Log in FSX does not print lat/lon values. They can be copied down from the screen in Map view using a mouse-over but that's cumbersome and error-producing.

All I want is a list of waypoints which I can input into my Reality XP GNS530. It cannot import .pln files either.
