Hi,Is it possible to find out the active runway and its elevation of a destination airport (given a weather pattern) without going to the actual airport from within FS? If so, how?Bobby

You should be able to find the elevation from the map view by clicking on the relevent airport, but I'm not sure about how to find the weather conditions without using ActiveSky. You could try tuning into the ATIS frequency for the airport but it is likely that the transmission may be limited in range. I haven't thought about trying this yet until just now so I don't know at this point. You might try looking in the learning center for more information.

the active runway(s) are into the wind, you can find this when you download real wx via the map, other wx settings will 'generally' be globalthe airport elevation is easily found via the built-in GPS unit (both types)
