  1. How to install a downloaded aircraft?

    Download the powerpoint presentation (in Dutch), made by Shaddy Fouad. Or follow these steps:

      • panel
      • sound
      • texture
      • and some other files
    2. Open Windows Explorer (verkenner) and place the maps/ file in your MS Flight Simulator aircraft directory:
      Example: C:\program files\microsoft games\flight simulator 2002\aircraft\(the map which includes the maps and files mentioned above)
    3. Start MS Flight Simulator and open your aircraft
    4. Good Luck!

      • [EFFECTS]
      • wake=fx_wake
      • water=fx_spray
      • dirt=fx_tchdrt
      • concrete=fx_sparks
      • touchdown=fx_tchdwn_s, 1
    2. Save file to the same name(always make a backup of the original file)
    3. The effects are now added to your aircraft!
    4. Good luck!
  3. How to install a downloaded scenery?

    For some sceneries just run the .exe file. For all others mostly:

    1. Unzip file by using for example WinZip. Mostly you will find something like this in the unzipped map:
      • scenery (mosly .bgl files)
      • texture (mosly .bmp files)
      • and some other files
    2. Open Windows Explorer (verkenner) and place the maps/ files in your MS Flight Simulator scenery directory:
      Example: C:\program files\microsoft games\flight simulator 2002\scenery\(the map which includes the maps and files mentioned above)
    3. Start MS Flight Simulator
    4. Go to this menu: WORLD\SCENERY LIBRARY\ADD AREA
    5. Give the scenery you want to add a name and give it priority one, so that it will be on top of the list, this is mostly the best thing to do.
    6. After "ok" it's done; just go to the airport you just installed!
    7. Good Luck!
