Steve,Unzip the AFCAD files to a folder (any folder, as long as you remember where it is).Open the AFCAD programImport (In the file menu) the afcad file you want to add to FS2002When it becomes visible in the window, click on Save (The little disk icon)AFCAD will prompt you to confirm that you want to import the file into FS2002, click yes.You're done.When you start FS2002 the next time, you'll see the scenery index being updated and all is done.AdrianOcala, Florida

Adrian, You may also want to "save" the original airport before you import the new one. Before "importing" new file as Steve outlined, first "Open" airport you are about to change. Once opened on your screen choose "Export". At this point you can change name in save box as something like "KBOSorig" and save it to a folder you set up in AFCAD folder for "Originals". I have a "to be Installed","Installed" and "originals" folder inside my AFCAD folder.Now you can "import" new file as Steve said. This way if you ever want to go back to the original you can, you would just "import" it. Also, many AFCAD airport files come with layered airports like KBOS & 2BOS. In this case you "import" each and after doing that go to your "airport".txt in TTools or wherever you have airport.txt master and add the new listing for "2BOS". Some files provide the airport info so you can just cut & paste. If not you find KBOS or whatever airport your working on in airport.txt, copy that line, paste it below as next line and then replace the K with a 2. Got it? Good Luck, Paul
