Which end of the Runway is which?

Hey wingmen, sorry dumb question... Is there any way or little trick in knowing which end of the Runway to take-off from after taxiing from the parking area. A couple of times I've seen my wingmen up the other end waiting as doofus me is at the wrong end of the path that takes you to the runway. I'll take a guess and say where you start is in front of the ATC Tower? Is this correct or is there some easier way of determining this? :helpsmilie::pilotfly:

So, interestingly, AI and ATC will change the runway to go into the prevailing wind, if its a bideirectional runway, automagically. Some are limited to one direction like Batumi, due to the approach being too hilly. ATC should, and doesn't, provide this to you until your request takeoff, then he will tell you the runway. ATIS is a service that's missing (and recently added with a payware mod called Univers radio) that tells you the runways in use when you are not at this point. You could add and AI runway startup for when you start the game and watch where he spawns to get the correct one initially without any further information.

What happened to requesting taxi to takeoff? They tell me which runway is in use then.
