Recognize airport


Recommended Posts

Hello Pete.

First I whant to thankful you for make this really good FS addon.

Second:

I need your help :D I am trying to make a 3rdparty program only for fun, I am experimenting whit FSUIPC options, and I want to know how can I make my program developed in c# .net 2005 ( I am not an expert ) to read in which airport I am in FS9 whit FSUIPC.

Finally. is there a option to put the real time in FS using GMT time?

Thank you!

... I want to know how can I make my program developed in c# .net 2005 ( I am not an expert ) to read in which airport I am in FS9 whit FSUIPC.

You'd have to read the Latitude/Longitude and look up a list of airports.

Finally. is there a option to put the real time in FS using GMT time?

You can set the GMT time using the Zulu time offsets -- please see the FSUIPC Programmer's guide. "Zulu" and "GMT" are the same times.

Regards

Pete

Sorry Pete :( I dindt read that...

About your answers, I read your answer:

I can read the LAT and LONG whit FSUIPC but I whant to read the ICAO code of each airport, for example KMIA, SEQU, EGLL,etc. How I do that?¿

You need to use the Lat/Lon to find the nearest airport from a file listing all of the airports with ICAO ID and Lat/Lon. There's no facility provided by FS or FSUIPC to tell you "nearest airport is ....". Sorry.

My freeware program "MakeRunways", available on the usual download place and above will generate a suitable file -- the most applicable one is probably "airports.fsm" which is a binary file with all the airports in an array of 18 byte structures:

struct {

char szICAO[4];

float fLat;

float fLon;

WORD wATIS1;

WORD wATIS2;

WORD wATIS3;

};

The ATIS values are BCD frequencies capable of giving weather information, 0x1234 meaning 112.34.

The airports are sorted into alphanumeric order of ICAO id.

Regards

Pete
