In most cases the instructions on installation are in the readme file. Others have included a self-installer.

Installing aircraft for fs9 is really simple. The best way to do this is to make a folder outside of fs I call mine HANGER you unzip the file into this folder.PLEASE WHATEVER YOU DO DO NOT UNZIP OR INSTALL AIRCRAFT DIRECTLY INTO ANY VERSION OF FS BAD THINGS CAN HAPPEN. If you totally trust the download source and they have a installer program you might want to take a chance. But in either case BACKUP YOU FOLDERS before you do anything. Once you have the plane unzipped into the hanger folder just drag and drop the folder it made into the aircraft folder of FS. Make sure there are no folders called Gauges inside of the unzipped file if so drag and drop these into your FS9 gauges folder if it asks to overwrite any existing file I suggest you say no and keep the old version. You may also find a folder called EFFECTS these files usually go into the effects folder of FS. You should find several folders just look at any of the default aircraft folders and you will see what folders are needed and what is not. But like someone else said most of these come with a readme file that explains what to do.In the case of any files you download from AVSIM they ALL should have a readme file as it is a requirement. If you should find a file that does not have a readme file please let us know and we will remove it.Regards !Gary BuskaSenior Library Manager / Forum Moderatorwww.avsim.comAVSIM ONLINE
