  • KMZ Files for FTXGlobal FREEWAREPACKS

    Hi pilots,

    since the first Release of the Freewarepacks NA of Neil and now Todd, I made kmzfiles for these new airports and I thought, to share it cause you´re maybe interested in...

    You can either visit this thread in the german forum of ORBX - there is always the latest file at the end of the thread or just take this link to my dropbox...

    Cheers and happy landings

                  Hi Sound,

                  with these kmz files, you can see all the airports in Google-Earth and you can use them with Plan-G for better flightplanning.

                      Thank you for your information.

                      Please, there are those (like me) who do not know how to work these. I would like to know how they install, what to do with them. Is there a link to learn more about these?

                            Hi Sound,

                            as karl and Andreas already said, its for google earth and normally you just have to make a doubleclick on the kmz-file to open them automatically with google earth, otherwise you open it like Andreas said. Then you move it from "temporary places" to "my places", if you want to keep them... After that, it looks like this:

                            Screenshot Google Earth with kmz files

                            If you download the kmz file 1-10 it looks exactly as shown in the Screenshot and you can open every single kmz file for pack 1, 2, 3 and so on... As you can see, I added a link to every airport for further information.
                            It will open the website "AirportNav Finder" inside Google Earth, looks like this



                            ...and additionally you can use them in the free flightplanning tool Plan-G.
                            On the "Home" Screen of Plan-G click below "KML" on the little arrow and then click "show", then find the actual kmz you want to use and all the airports will be shown in the map similar to google earth, but here you can also use them for flightplannings and it looks like that:

                            Screenshot Plan-G with kmz files

                            Hope that helps!

                            and thanks to karl and Andreas....

                              Thank you all for the explanation. That really helps to understand what they are for. I will try to use them for my flights.
