Can anyone tell me how to add an airport to a set of flightplans on FS9.
I know how to create the flightplans etc but the only infomation i have on the airport is the ID..ie OTHB and the name of the base which is Al Uedied , so I dont know how to add this airport to create the airports text document and then compile the flightplans.

any advice much appreciated

Al Uedied or Al-Udaid is OTBH not HB. You will need to put the following co-ordinates into the corresponding Airport.txt file and save/compile

OTBH,N25* 6.87',E51* 18.86',135

Hope this helps

I've got a big Airport.txt file that I've managed to compile over the last year or so....picked the contents up from various sources. I copy/paste it when doing new .bgl files, it's not complete but fairly comprehensive. I'll email it you if you like.
