Nearest airport

Postby ATC Roo » Sun Oct 16, 2016 9:38 am

Peter,

Is it possible to add the airport that the aircraft is closest too into the aircraft list?

I thought it maybe handy for when clients join, as they would be able to see where the traffic is.

Hi Roo,

I was wondering about that too. I'll have a look.

Thanks,
Peter

Thanks.
I can see you've not got much to do at the moment with all the other requests I've been reading, so thought that I'd mention mine. :shock: :D

Roo, the GPS 500 has this function, so to do it in JFS is a duplication of function and effort.

Hi,

When this was originally posted I had no easy way of getting airport positions to work this out. However, when I added the ATC Mode I had to include a list of all airports and their positions, so now this feature is just a few lines of code. I'll see if I can get this in to the next version.

Thanks,
Peter
