You're more than likely running into problems with the AIRAC cycle of the default FS9, Which by now is 5 years old. Most of the current waypoints simply don't exist in FS9's default cycle. Here is a link to update the default to the current (0308) AIRAC cycle. From there you should be able to transfer the flightaware routes straight across.http://uk.geocities.com/fs9.airac@btinternet.com/Cheers

I think the FS9 flight planner just reads the lat/long, and doesn't actually look for the waypoints in the scenery files? so there might be some other problem. I built that route as listed in fsbuild 1.43 assuming a south departure. FS9 doesn't have any of the fixes in that PECOP 1 departure, but both the flight planner and GPS handled it with no problem.This is the fsbuild navlog:Flight Plan:KSLC-PECOP1.MVA-ECA-J58-OAK-BEBOP-R464-BITTA-R464-MAGGI-MKK-V7-LNY.CAMPS2-PHOGRouting: (SM) (Mag)ID/Name DIST HDG VIA KSLC SALT_LAKE_CITY_INTL 4 217 N40:47:18 W111:58:40 PPIGG PPIGG 14 281 PECOP1 N40:44:47 W112:03:28 INTWAZER WAZER 4 279 PECOP1 N40:50:24 W112:20:06 INTAXFOG AXFOG 6 246 PECOP1 N40:52:17 W112:26:28 INTBONNE BONNE 11 251 PECOP1 N40:51:44 W112:34:44 INTDEZRT DEZRT 45 256 PECOP1 N40:50:30 W112:49:59 INTGRAAM GRAAM 42 254 PECOP1 N40:50:30 W113:49:59 INTPECOP PECOP 119 203 PECOP1 N40:49:59 W114:45:00 INTASTNN ASTNN 87 226 PECOP1 N39:15:00 W116:22:59 INTMVA MINA 154 239 DCT N38:33:55 W118:01:58 115.10 VORECA MANTECA 50 247 J58 N37:50:00 W121:10:16 116.00 VOROAK OAKLAND 139 237 DCT N37:43:33 W122:13:24 116.80 VORBEBOP BEBOP 97 236 R464 N36:59:59 W125:00:04 INTBAART BAART 140 235 R464 N36:27:42 W126:55:59 INTBLUFF BLUFF 299 233 R464 N35:38:37 W129:38:08 INTBAKON BAKON 342 230 R464 N33:41:55 W135:13:18 INTBILLO BILLO 256 228 R464 N31:10:41 W141:17:35 INTBEATS BEATS 299 227 R464 N29:06:48 W145:37:18 INTBANDY BANDY 218 225 R464 N26:31:48 W150:27:24 INTBRADR BRADR 108 225 R464 N24:32:35 W153:50:53 INTBITTA BITTA 86 202 R464 N23:31:40 W155:28:43 INTSOMOH SOMOH 44 219 R464 N22:19:17 W156:20:33 INTMAGGI MAGGI 43 186 DCT N21:50:25 W156:57:56 INTMKK MOLOKAI 25 143 CAMPS2 N21:08:17 W157:10:02 116.10 VORLNY LANAI 21 096 CAMPS2 N20:45:52 W156:58:08 117.70 VORCAMPS CAMPS 17 026 CAMPS2 N20:39:54 W156:36:09 INTPHOG KAHULUI N20:53:55 W156:25:49 Total Distance: 2684 NMProbably need to take a look at the .pln file.scott s..

Thanks to all. I never could get the downloaded flight plans from Simroutes to load properly in FS9 so I ending up bringing the route list from Flightaware into Super Flight Planner and making the route from there; and it seemed to go OK
