Query aircraft.cfgs icao_type_designator or flightplan destination via SimConnect

Hi guys,

currently it seems we can still only SimConnect query ATC MODEL which gets the atc_model from the aircraft.cfg? Is there a way planned to also query the icao_type_designator from that same file?

In addition, I have not yet found a way to get the flightplan destination ICAO, if the user has loaded up a flightplan. While the SDK shows a ton of quite new ATC variables like ATC IFR FP TO REQUEST , the destination does not seem to be a part of that.

Greets, Ben
