I can understand your frustration here, i read the PMDG manual and did'nt understand a word of it as regards the FMC, it's not very well explained at all. I had a play around with it and managed to get from A to B but then trying to configure it to the runway you're supposed to land on whilst in flight etc i can't recall being explained at all. Hence i never bother with the PMDG 737 at all now!

I have read through the manual and an configure the FMC....sort of. But I am trying to figure out how to import the data from FSBuild.

I have FSBuild all setup to export the flight plan into the 737/747 but when I get into the FMC...I find no way to get the flight plan.

Does anyone have a clue as to where it is and how I can access it?

Hi Oldgeek,

I don't use FSBuild (yet) but I do use PMDG. I know that there is a flightplans folder within the PMDG folder (in turn located in your FS main folder). Inside this route folder are the routes which PMDG can call up. They end in .rte. Perhaps this is where you could export your FSBuild plans too.

Sorry if you've already tried this or if it doesn't work, its' just a suggestion.
