If this is possible, I'd appreciate having the info. I can't figure out how to do it with this aircraft.

Sure!I don't have any other programs running.I use FSX SP2 with Vista.Load 737PIC.I first load,(important) an existing FS flight plan from the drop-down menu & I elect to go to the departure airport runway threshhold.YBBN-YSSY.Once sitting on the runway, I open the FMC.I clear the message, which says: Nav databaseout of date.I click on the POS INIT button.On the FMC I type say, YBBN.Then click on the REF Airport button, 2nd top left, which enters YBBN.Next, click on the ROUTE button.Next click on the ORIGIN button which will bring up YBBN.Then I type in 01 in the FMC.Next I click the Runway button, which brings up runway 01.(This must be the correct runway you're on. It musthave at least, two numbers, put a zero in front of necessary.If you do this wrong, you will have to cold rebooteverything, including your computer, as FMC's don'tlike mistakes).Next I type YSSY on the FMC, then click on theDEST button.Then click the ROUTE Request button, wait a second or two,then click the Activate button, then press the green EXEC button on the FMC. (Any mistake & you'll have to reboot).Next on the same page, I click in the Origin runway again,01, and click the green EXEC button on the FMC.After doing the PERF INIT steps, I check the LEGS button.It usually needs finishing off at the end of the route,which might have missing final heights & speeds,e.g. 170/1700'.I have written down these steps exactly. If it works once,there is no problem. If it won't work again, you havemade a not obvious mistake somewhere.It's the best sophisticated aircraft I've ever flown,with superb features, including beautiful idle taxi.Good luck,Peter Sydney Australia

Peter,Thank you for your detailed instructions. I haven't tried them yet, but I will let you know. I am designing a mission with this aircraft, and have been looking for a good way to import an FSX-designed flight plan into this FMC.Cheers,
