Extract Info From Airport Database

Recommended Posts

Is there a utility or a way to extract information from the airport database? For example, I'd like to get a list of airport ID numbers and lat/long.

Hi Enave,what would be the purpose of this utility? what do you need this info for? there are many tools to do this. I know at least one, included in the reality xp package. The database tool creates an airport_gates.dat file with all the airports ICAO, lat, lon, altitude and gates information for direct use with the traffic SDK. This alone on the standard fs2002 airports adds more than 2000 airports and their fs gates to the default 1500 included with the SDK.Hope it helps!

Also check out FSFlightMax. Fantastic module that is a very excellent replica of the real Avidyne multipurpose weather radar, lightening, TCAS, moving map, AND TONS MORE . . . inluding the nifty .bgl extractor utility that moves all the airport info onto one of the "pages" in the module-gauge. Very handy so you can fly anywhere and make your ILS landings anywhere they exist, sans the flight plan.Noel
