Discrepancies with Airport Identifiers

I ‘m finding more and more discrepancies between MSFS airport identifiers and those found in the FAA’s NASR airport data set and Jeppesen charts provided by Navigraph. I’ve documented 74 so far. Here are some examples.

In MSFS Should be
MHDA MHCQ
MHWI MHOR
MHSC MHPR
MH14 MHUY
P97 MI09
KHUU MI39
MMGG MMGA
MNLP MNOM
KROR MO18
MPSO MPCO
MPSE MPMF
MPSN MPMI
MPPI MPRE
MPMF MPRP
PX02 MPVC
MRCN MRLR
KWHI MT62
4K3 MU97
MZOR MZAM
MZPL MZBG
MBCV MZBP
MZSI MZCF
MZSP MZCK
MZCO MZCZ
MZDA MZPB
MZPU MZPG
MZSN MZPR
MMCD MZSJ
MZ10 MZSP

Am I missing something or are there that many incorrect in MSFS? If the latter, is this the data from NAVBlue, their navdata provider?

There are loads of these errors all over the world, mostly smaller airfields or former airfields and they’ve just reused codes in what appears to be random. The incorrect data certainly doesn’t come from any official data provider as far as I can tell.

I submitted a Zendesk ticket identifying the 450+ identifiers I found and believe are incorrect with what they should be. I’d love to hear from MS or Asobo more details on how they are using NAVBlue’s data and what is actually updated during each AIRAC cycle in an upcoming Dev Q&A.

Here is what I submitted to Zendesk for review.

In MSFS2020 SAZZ San Martin de Los Andes should be instead SCKN Pirihueico.
SCKN Licancel is not listed in AIP Chile.

can’t check right now the world map, been searching on google and found this report aswell on reddit

u/raamiap said :

So I was messing around on the map looking at the airports in Southern Chile and I found SAZZ airport sitting in the Chilean side of the border with the name: “San Martin de los Andes Airport”. Based on the ICAO code (and name) this is an airport in Argentina. However, the location of the airport is next to the town of Puerto Pirihueico, Chile instead (several kilometres from the border inside Chile). There actually is a runway next to that Chilean town based on Sat data, but I cannot find a name or registry for it (though I see it on the satellite) and it is certainly not the above name and ICAO.

Further research into this strange airport led me to find that SAZZ does not seem to exist at all in Argentina! In fact, the airport serving San Martin de Los Andes, Argentina is SAZY… and SAZY is also in the game and rendered properly (location, name, etc).

It oddly seems like this random runway in Chile very close to the Argentinian border was not identifiable by Asobo’s staff so they erroneously made one up! It was given a random ICAO code, parking locations, and designation as part of Argentina, yet it isn’t even an airport in Argentina and it’s not even in Argentina in the game itself (as stated, the airport in the game is geographically in Chile).

My point here is to both point out this bizarre find (can anyone verify?) AND also to ask if anyone else has found similar “made up” airports in the game? I just found it so odd when I saw an airport on the Chilean side of the border with an “SA” instead of “SC” code and it led me down this crazy rabbit hole.

Thoughts ?

I hope with the new airport hub, this kind of data mismatching can be easly edited.
