MAKE SURE FILES ARE SHOWN INCLUSIVE THE EXTENSIONS See how here
Inspired by the fact that so many apparently has serious problems with following my instructions on how to install aircraft into FSX (especially HJG-aircraft). I'll describe another way of doing it that may seem more evident and/or easy to follow.
Stay tuned this very evening (UTC) as I will be using some of the neat features in FSX and hopefully more of you will have a bit less trouble installing and a bit more fun flying our great HJG-aircraft in FSX.

OK, "I've done everything you've said and my aircraft still wont show"
My reply to this will be:
"No you haven't" otherwise your aircraft would show!
The main reason for a NO-SHOW is a wrongly aliased panel: NO-PANEL => NO-SHOW (FSX thinks its an AI-aircraft)
Wrong SIM reference: (check that the sim-part of the fltsim-section is actually in sync with the *.air file in the folder:
sim=B707-320C should reflect that there is a B707-320C.air file present (note you shall NOT include the extension in the aircraft.cfg file)
wrong MODEL reference
model= indicates that the model folder is used
in the B707-320C you will notice there are several modeltypes all using the same air-file, but isolated by each own model folder:
model model.323C model.323C_S2HK model.HK3 model.S2HK
hence you could use the same aircraft.cfg file but using different models by indication which model folder you should use. In case you have a 323C_S2HK model, your fltsim-section should have this model statement: model=323C_S2HK
If not the sim and the model sections are correct you will get a no-show. If you have wrongly aliased your panel you will get a no-show. If you haven't installed the core files you will get a panel without gauges If you haven't installed the textures correct you will get a no-show. If you haven't installed the sounds correct, you will have a very silent aircraft. If you have wrong bitmaps in the texture folder, you will get a black aircraft.
Have fun and PLEASE don't forget that there is really no magic involved, just pure logic and file references.....
ALL of our current aircraft have been installed on at LEAST 3 computers without errors, so if you have a problem with a no-show it is very likely your own fault ;-)
Our aircraft are not faultless but they sure do all show in both FS9 and FSX, other errors may be there but NOT install wise.
Please go through your install procedure thoroughly a few times before asking at the forum.
