I'm surprised someone else hasn't commented on this yet.
Losing DAFIF access will be a pretty big blow to X-Plane and FlightGear.
The DAFIF data is the primary source of global airports and navaid data that
we use in FlightGear.
It is not the only source of info but it is the primary source. The other
sources are just little bits and pieces - nothing on a global scale like
So we are now esentially stuck with a dataset that is going to age and get
inaccurate as time goes on and things are updated and changed in the real
world. Frequencies, new navaid equipment, etc.
