This seems like a fun project, but doesn't this remove all the fun out of the "flying". I guess it just shifts the fun from flying to developing.

All you need now is an auto-takeoff and auto-land feature, and maybe a terrain following option. :)

If this is like a fun for you so why you are trying to develope Simconnect procedures yourself ?

Your previous discussion at:

http://forum.simflight.com/topic/70699-nearest-airports-fix/#entry437369

I'm playing with some SimConnect code, and seem to have the same issue: I SubscribeToFacilities then re-request with RequestFacilitiesList when a subscribe event is received to figure out what might have been deleted, but the airport at which I'm actually sitting is sometimes not in the list.

Just get the actual Lat/Lon position and use the Ed Williams Aviation Math-Formulas and you solve the problem.

"Simcon" is only working with real Aviation Formulas.

A part of this you don't need to read actually the FS Apt's, you can create your own Airport-File.

Get/Read the "actual" Apt you are 'sitting' is also a question of how you program your enquiry.

Getting ready share code is quite difficult as certain applications require a lot of programming work.

I am doing this, FSX doesn't return all the airports it's supposed, and you don't know what airport someone may have installed.

If you want to correctly match with what FSX is reporting, you can't use an offloaded list of airports without requiring users to sync every time they install new scenery especially things like Misty Mooring.

Adding a new Airport with all coordinates is not a problem using a external Apt-File. You get any aircraft-position Coordinates Lat/Lon in automatic wherever the plane is sitting for Apt-Lat/Lon + Rwy-Lat/Lon.

Just use a Feature like this (Freeware):

I don't think you are installing a new scenery x times every week.

This program has a LOT of great features even if you do not want to create a virtual runway. Along with Cockpit Status these two provide a tremendous amount of flight info. That, along with the capability to operate switches and enter radio freqs., etc are just a few.  PKUS, it can be done from a networked PC via FSUIPC.

Give them a try
