    Hi!

    Is there a possibility to get the VORs/NDBs and Airports near the User-Aircraft with SimConnect? Like the way how to get the AI-Traffic ?

    I think that may be possible with the next release of the SDK.

    Since all the information is in the BGl files they would be the only logical way to get at the information. It would only need to be done once assuming that the defaut files are not going to change.

    Hypix,

    SP1 SDK has a sample called "FacilitiesData". You might study the code and see if it leads you down the right path.

    After installing the SDK, the default installation path would be:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\Core Utilities Kit\SimConnect SDK\Samples\FacilitiesData
