SubscribeToFacilities / RequestFacilitiesList returns the same 1234 aiports in the callback 31 times

I already seen this post on the MSFS2020 forums: SubscribeToFacilities/RequestFacilitiesList: Only returns the first 1243 airports but wanted to echo it here.

Anyone have a workaround for this? I'm trying to get a list of Airports around the user's aircraft. This would also be a lot easier if RequestFacilitiesList had a radius like RequestDataOnSimObjectType or if RequestDataOnSimObjectType could take a SIMBOJECT_TYPE.AIRPORT

thanks, Jeff

Hi Jeff,

as far as I know this is just broken. When I was trying with that I even did not receive the airport I was actually closest to...which was the only one I was interested at.

Asobo is planning on implementing something new for that this year. So I doubt they will bother fixing the current mechanic.

Greets,

Ben
