Groundpounder,I think that if you download AFCAD131.zip (should be available here or at flightsim.com) and installed it, you would be able to import airport data as a text file, and, if careful, even modify it. Read the accompaning text file fully.Also, if you go to World/Map View and zoom in to the airport, and then double click on one of the airport's runways, you can get a lot of the info you want.Good luck,

Airport Chart Viewer aka Airport's Chart Viewer does this, but the author doesn't document the resulting database so I don't know how to use it outside of the program. Maybe he would reveal the format?scott s..

Thanks for the information. I once saw someone post screen shots of a database made in MS Access that had all the airport information in it. He said that we just extracted all the information from FS somehow and I tried to email him about his program but I never had a response. Thanks again.
