Hi SamuelTo manually enter the ILS of a runway, the correct format for the 747 series is:frequency/course so for say EGSS it would be110.5/048 or 110.5/228 then just enter it through the lsk button next to the ils position on the fmc.regardsJohn CallejaBAW 352

Hoi, at the PMDG homepage it's at the bottom of the page, called AIRAC Cycle 0513 for 737NG and 747-400 released...but is it possible to add other navigation data / airfields, like for example Peter McLeland's fictional airfield?

Samuel,This has been discussed many times before. Here's a link that should explain it all: http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho..._id=66852&page=The procedure is the same for the 744/744F as for the 737NG. They use the same files.Hope it helps,

With the installation of the 747 comes a pretty thorough descrition of tyhe FMC which is in the operations manual. Suggest you read it before posting your questions.

I have found that the EHAM issue is not a Navdata issue. I have all the AIRAC cycles up to 513 (i beleive that was the last one before the navdata site stoped providing it) yet my EHAM data is always inaccurate. When i go to force it by manually entering frequencies in the FMC, my pc freezes. This has happened since i bought the PMDG 747-400. I'm not sure what to do about it and have avoided flying in and out of EHAM. It is definitely not an "update data" type of issue.Anthony

Hallo Anthony,It's not the navdata, but it's the scenery that is probably the culprit. The EHAM default scenery is very old. Since then the polderbaan (36L, 18R) has been added, the north/south runways have been renamed and a number of ILS frequencies have been changed. I am using Cloud9 with the 737NG and have no problems.Success,--pim
