Longest runways

Longest runways, FSX

Here is a list of the world's 15 longest runways in FSX. Of course longer runways can handle larger aircrafts, but long runways may also be required if the airport is located at high elevation or in a warm climate.

You may use the long runways for testing e.g. takeoff and landing emergency procedures. Also see airport statistics.
