I tried those and had a little trouble following the instructions, I wold post my own here but at this moment I'm a little busy. However I'll be back as soon as I have time to explain.

By the way normally aircraft and textures have "Read me" files in th folder open them up with "Notepad" and follow the instructions.

You're better off googling for instructions elsewhere. Our resident 'How to install aircraft in FSX' is incomplete, confusing and contains mistakes such as:

NOTE: Even if the addon is a helicopter, still put it in the airplanes folder, not the rotorcraft folder.

WRONG!

If it says a copy of it already exists, say yes to all to overwrite them.

Dangerous!

6.If there any any extra files or folders (read me,manuals,ect) delete them...

Simply inane! ...I often wondered why the authors and developers go through the trouble of writing ReadMe files and Manuals.

These cobbled together 'instructions' are a disgrace and have no place in the Fly Away forums. I haven't even mentioned important steps that were omitted by dtdb nor have I touched on the 'How to install Addon Textures' part which is just as misleading if not worse.

@dtdb in the interest of all new flightsim enthusiasts I put it to you that you delete this post of yours as it is useless and only causes more confusion (you can use the Edit button).

Quickly scanned it and it seems like it wold be quite helpful. But remember that you should read the "read me" files too.
