Hi all, Iv got PAI and WOAI installed and can use them pretty easily. Its when I try to get flightplans from say touchdownai where I get problems. I take the 3 .bgl files put them into scenery/world/senery and then compile them in ttools. When I look in the scenery/world/scenery I have two textfiles still for aircraft and airports. I have ran fs several times and cant find the aircraft where they should be, anyone help please?

Sorry to hijack the thread, but could I ask whether anyone here uses any stand alone planning utilities for FS2004? I'm looking to plan a flight using my Just Flight 777-300ER from Amsterdam Schipol to St Maarten Princess Juliana International in the Netherlands Antilles, however, using the default planner in FS2004 doesn't seem to pre-load the plan into the Flight Management Computer, and it looks as if I'll have to do it manually through the FMC Control Display Unit's keypad. Therefore, what I was hoping for is something I can use outside FS2004 to create my plan, print it off and then have it to hand whilst I'm punching in my waypoints, frequencies etc... Could anyone recommend anything?

Click here for a decent Flight sim route finder. Unfortunately it doesn't recognize EHAM but nearly all other airports should be ok, once you select the ICAO codes of your airports and enter them, press "find route", your route you want for the FMC will be displayed at the very bottom. Hope this helps Dean
