Is a autotaxi feasable?

Recommended Posts

HI I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I really want an autotaxi feature. Is this something possible with simconnect? I thought maybe I could guide my plane using the same data that guides the AI traffic or at least interpret the data that is passed to the AI? Interested to know a bit more about the taxi ways, runways, airports etc.Any help would be awesome. :)

Yes it is possible but you will have to be able to parse the airport scenery files for taxiway and gate information too. Controlling the aircraft via SimConnect isn't really a problem. All in all not really a trivial task.

HI thanks for the help. I've started to code the XML loader for my Access database. I've got the design of the logic code done. Will probably take me ages but I'm in no rush. :)
