Support reading navdata (FacilityLoader, which is already available in JS) in WASM gauges

Currently, fetching the MSFS navdata (SID's, STAR's, waypoints, airways, facilities) from anywhere in the world is only possible via JS. Please support these same navdata API's natively in WASM gauges, so external navdata (e.g. Navigraph, as the Aerosoft CRJ has done) is not a necessity if developing solely in WASM.

Hello,

We plan to give read-only access to Navdata next year. No ETA yet!

Hi,

is there any reason why, if you are already planning on a huge navdata api overhaul anyways, you cannot also allow for write-access to navdata that is currently in memory? While I can do that by directly manipulating memory, it would be way more preferable to have that as an offical part of an api.

Greets, Ben

Do you know how to read airways using the facilityLoader?

I can read airports, waypoints, and know if a waypoint is part of a given airway, but I would like to list all the waypoints of a given airway to create a flight plan using airways.
