Did you run TCompiler? That converts the aircraft, airports and flightplans files back into the Traffic.bgl file that FS2002 uses. You have to run TCompiler every time you change any of the .txt files in order for the changes to take effect. And even though the TTools manual says otherwise, sometimes I don't see the new flights until I quit and restart FS2002 as well.I've found AITM to be a very helpful tool in solving some of these problems. For one thing, it will find and display any flights in which it can't locate the aircraft. That's one thing that gets past TCompiler. You can also use the Aircraft Editor tool in AITM to make sure that the aircraft files are correct and usable.To test things, I set up a "practice field" at an out-of-the-way airport, and then set up a 2-HR flight plan where the start and destination airports are the same, and the flights start every hour. The plane should take off, circle the field and land about 15 minutes later. This way I avoid any confusion about GMT vs Local and arrival vs destination airports, and I can just test the planes.
