Just wondering how reliable are those ICAO codes which are being used in FS2002.
I also saw a lot of codes like Z01X etc.. are those kind of codes official or made-up because the airports/strips/fields otherwise wouldn't have a identifying code???

No, they are mixtures of numbers and letters. The most prominent airports in most countrys have only letters, but the majority of airports worldwide do have numbers. And the numbers and letters do mean something, they aren't just chosen at lot. And yes in FS2002 the numbers are 100% accurite. Want proof, go to a little airport in Ontario called Grimbsby Airpark.... CODE: CNZ8!
