Hello Pete,

Is there an offset that allows to know the distance (from the beginning of the runway) of the touchdown?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Patrice

No, because the runway is simply a scenery object, part of the definition of the airport layount. You'd need to find the runway in a database so you can get it's coordinates and do the calculations.

If the runway has a VOR\Localiser near the touchdown then you could use its coordinates instead. You would need it turned in on NAV1 or NAV2. See offsets 0874, 0878 or 084C, 0850.
