Hi All I have the usual "No TDZ" warning on a flight EGLL to ZSPD (Shanghai Pudong)There are no runways for this airport in the FMC database. Can a runway be entered via the scratchpad and if so how ? Can the FMC database be updated somehow?Thanks in anticipationDave

Hi DaveI very quickly put the 747-400 on the active runway at EGLL and did a quick few entries into the fmc and ZSPD runways and approaches appeared. I update my database monthly by using navigraph payware, have no way of knowing if ZSPD would have been there before using navigraph, but if you are in a position to be able to pay for your fmc data then navigraph is the best option, especially if you continue to go onto online flying with say VATSIM where the controllers tend to use the latest information. I am not aware of any freeware available to regularly update your fmc data. There is what I believe to be a user file (free) by Joe Leung on this site http://www.navdata.at/under the sid/star button, then choose download from the left menu then choose pmdg then the airport. I do not know how to install these airports into the fmc as I do not use them but on my system if i go to program files/mictosoft games/flightsim9/PMDG/SIDSTARS seems to have files in a similar format.ps. link to navigraph is www.navigraph.comhope this helpsbest regardsJohn Calleja
