Are the lengths of displaced threshholds and stopways given for a

R KSFO 01L 37.618096 -122.376161 27.70 7502 200 NARHN NYNN 491 0
NNVN 0 0


is the length of the runway itself 7011 feet? Or is the length of
the runway itself 7502 feet, meaning that the length of paved surface
is 7993 feet?


As far as I know this is true. At least for my local airport it is.



Heh, sorry, *which* is true? There are two possibilities above. I'm guessing you mean the latter (that the length refers to the runway alone, and not the total length of paved surface)?

Thanks,

The official format specification is here. Note that the FG format is a direct 1 to 1 translation of the X-Plane format. We did this historically because the X-Plane format had some severe limitation we wanted to move beyond. However, in the mean time the X-Plane format has been beefed up significantly so I am considering a long term migration of our code to do everything natively in x-plane format.
