Hi there,unzip the AIRAC file and execute it, it will find its way to the right folder in fs9 (FMCWP folder - NAVDATA subfolder) and automatically make a backup file.Then launch MFS and choose your favorite PMDG aircraft, go into the FMC and you will see that your AIRAC cycle had been updated.You can do it monthly, and add SID and STAR files (in the PMDG folder) when you want, by selecting them on the NAVDATA website.
