HiIt won't take too long before the apron is jam packed with planes - it isn't that big! :) I flew an Airbus 321 from EFHK to LPMA yesterday and it was a nice flight. However in FSNAV I get no ILS frequencies for either runway - should there be in MSFS2k2?I can of course check that when I get home but maybe you can answer quicker! :)At what time will the fly-in start?EDITED Ok, found the schedule at the website and printed out the STAR's and SID's./KristerFinland

Madeira doesn't have ILS, in fact for the active runway (05 if the wind continues like this) the approach is visual. That's why the lights are so important, they are curved over the mountain and in strobe. For charts check: http://www.portugal-vacc.org specially the chart for 05 approach.Jos
