Problem with airport starting with digit ("12W")

Trying to fly from KSEA to 12W (Ranger Creek), ATC selects "St Joseph Community Hospital" helipad instead.

I have a similar problem with M05 airport (viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3607). It does not start with a number but it is 3 chars long. Could it be a problem with 3 letters airports?!

Hi guys,
first tests done yesterday went good, the runway was recognized correctly, I can't reproduce the issue. I'll try to perform further tests..
