Copy your downloaded aircraft folder to

32 bit: C:/Program Files/Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/SimObjects/Airplanes *
64 bit: C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/SimObjects/Airplanes *

* if you let FSX install to it's default location and your hard drive's letter is C.

one thing to add: do not trust the auto installers. they have caused me lots of problems. if you have a plane that uses them, install to a temp folder and do it manually. most folks here are pretty knowledgeable about what's good and what ain't. browse the forums to learn alot of good info. most questions you might think to ask have already been asked by someone who was just as much a noob as the next guy at one time. the answer is here somewhere already, in most cases.

*gee, i guess that's more than 1 thing, isn't it?
