HI Alfredo,Not much we can do until FS has the ability to depict non-flat runways and airports.Very few, if any, airports are perfectly flat. Yet FS cannot depict anything but a flat airport/runway.They generally use the airport's published elevation, which is generally the highest spot on the airport. However, runway threshold elevations are rarely the same as the airport elevation. Most runway threshold elevations vary from their counterpart on the other end, some by as much as 100 feet or more. Thus, when depicting these runways in FS, one end invariably is on a plateau (or in a pit).Maybe FS2006 . . . -------Justinhttp://www.fsgenesis.netHigh Quality Scenery for FS200x
