In the future, I am asking that all FPs be offered in a .zip format and tested as such so we can offer "turnkey" packages where all downloaders have to do is unzip and place the respective Airports.txt, Aircraft.txt, and FlightPlans.txt files into Traffic Tools and compile them. I have had to break up and correct a lot of FPs offered in "raw" format on the forum where you have to create the .txt files yourself and fix issues. Doing this will speed the time of updates to the site, as I don't have time to create and correct .txt files and turn them into a .zip so they can be uploaded to the site and update the site in a timely manner.

There are plenty of free hosting sites (I believe that is what Raul, Christian and Paul are using) or you could e-mail them to me at my personal address and I'll post them directly to the RAI site. You could also use the Gmail account - email@example.com, but it sometimes gives me problems, so sending them direct to me is probably best. I believe my address is in my profile. Alternately, for those of you with Administrator or Moderator rights, and can FTP the files, I'll PM you the login info and set up a "new flight plans" folder on there to put the right on our site. I'll then add them to the page and move them in to the downloads section.

A bit of an addendum, I already have created .txts and checked for any errors in compilation on many of the 1970's schedules, and will have the rest done this weekend (along with the updated page), so don't send me anything from the '70s unless it hasn't been posted here already.
