Hi!

Unfortunately, this is not possible using SimConnect. If you want information on runways, you need to scan the actual Scenery files, which expands into scanning the packages to find Scenery packages.

If you want an example of how to do this, you could take a look at what I have implemented in CsSimConnect. Admittedly this was mostly targeted at extracting parking information, but the runway data is (partially) in there also.

Cheers,
