Is there any way to get Kai Tak into the FMS database with its famous checkerboard approach?

Thanks.

Warning: the thread is long, there are complexities to handle, and you need to follow the instructions with great care. But it can be done, I have done it, and the results are well worth the effort.

Thanks guys. I did search but it didn't bring anything up. Not sure what I did wrong.

Thanks!

Forgive me if I´m being especially dense, but that thread mentions a freeware scenery and not the Fly Tampa version, and it´s in the FSX forum.

I am on FS9 and have the FT scenery:  does all the info so carefully explained in the thread apply?
Is there anything I have to modify other than the folders?

It also appears that the file vhxx_176532.zip is no longer in the AVSIM library.  Providing that this fix will work for me, would someone be kind enough to send me, or point me to, the file?

Thanks.

Lennox,

I think the airport and runway edits will apply to FS9 for the Fly Tampa. I have FSX but they look identical to the edits I have used for other add ons.

Try here for Terminal Procedures, http://planepath.com/

This site has started to include Kai Tak in the latest 0808 release.

vhxx_176532.zip is the procedures file. As Nigel points out, much better and more up-to-date procedures are now available elsewhere. The latest version from Navigraph is dated 31/07/2008. I would just forget about the zip file and go ahead.
 
Regards, John
