Hi,have a look at your FS9 key assignments. Search for something like Concorde - raise/lower nose (sorry, don't know the exact words as I'm using the german translation) and give a key to it. That should do the trick.

The key to deploy the stairs is mapped to "extend concorde nose & visor fully".The key to retract the stairs is mapped to "retract concorde....".That should make it work for you! If you have any problems, we'll be here!

Not all the liveries have stairs.Normally you'll see something like 'Stairs' or 'with Stairs' in the title.Or you can browse the AIRCRAFT.CFG file. If the corresponding 'fltsim' section has the entry 'model=AS', then it has stairs.CheersThomas

Hello Captains,I would like to remind all of you that the PMDG web site has a support section, with a Support FAQ for the PMDG 737NG. Simply visit the PMDG web site at www.precisionmanuals.com and click on the "Support" tab. There is a wealth of information their that can often save you time and frustration.From the PMDG 737NG FAQ, Section I.2:=========================================I.2) Map keys to operate the Air Stairs up and down: In order to animate the operation of the Air Stairs, we installed a very complex articulated stair model into the 737NGs that use the stairs in the real world. (You can tell this from reading the information in the User Interface....) If you have an airplane that uses Air Stairs and you would like to operate them, the following are some easy steps to help you! Within MSFS, access the CONTROLS menu, then the ASSIGNMENTS menu. Assign a key to EXTEND CONCORDE NOSE and VISOR FULLY (I recommend CTRL+F10) Assign a key to RETRACT CONCORDE NOSE and VISOR FULLY (I recommend CTRL+F9)Now the air stairs are mapped to your CTRL+F9 and CTRL+F10 keys so that you can operate them within MSFS! It is important to note that not every 737 includes the stair animation, as not all airlines order the stairs from Boeing! The stairs add a significant amount of weight to the basic shell of the airplane, so many airlines choose not to have them installed. You can normally determine if you model has air stairs by reading the User Interface information about the 737 you have chosen!
