At designated landing or takeoff points within your flight plan, visible centreline extensions can be added to all certified/registered airports on the map. Extensions will also be added to airports designated as a direct-to destination.

Runway centreline extensions

Each extension projects out 5 Nautical Miles from the runway threshold.

Where there is also a METAR station at that airport, the most into wind runway will be highlighted in green (see RW24, above). If the wind favours two runways equally, both will be highlighted.

Extensions may not display for one or more of the following reasons:

  • If no flight plan is currently open
  • If an airport in your flight plan is being used as a turning point only
  • If the airport does not have formally surveyed runway ends (usually grass/gravel runways) or there are no details present in the current navdata database
