Theres two updates you need to install for the PMDG series. Unfortunately the AIRAC update (airways etc - not SIDS/STARS) you will have to pay for. These can be purchased from and these come withing an EXE file and you won't have to manually install them.The second set is the SID/STAR database which you can download from - Click on "SID/STAR" from the menu along the top of the website, then click "All in one" from the menu now at you left. Select "PMDG all products" from the drop down menu, and follow the download link. After you have downloaded, you will need to unzip the file and copy the entire contents to this folder:"C:Program FilesMicrosoft GamesFlight Simulator 9PMDGSIDSTARS"Obviously if you have FS9 installed in a different directory, you will have to change the above address. Thats all you need to do! Your FMC will now have all the latest SID/STARS available. Sometimes you will find that these files aren't 100% accuracte, and people do upload their own to avsim library. Hope this helps!Sam.
