The general aviation and corporate flights are kept in the genav.db file.  There is one genav.db file for each facility.  We recently discovered that in some cases, these files were not being generated properly.  

A complete set of the genav.db files can be downloaded here:  

There is no charge for these files.
We added a suffix to each file to indicate the facility to which it belongs.  e.g.  genav.db.MCI

The starting location for these files on your machine is:
C:\ProgramData\Flag Mountain\ATCpro\Facilities

Then there are six folders subordinate to the Facilities folder. e.g. Facilities\ABQ,   etc.

To install these files on your machine, copy each file into the Facilities folder matching the suffix.  If an genav.db file already exists in this folder, either rename it or delete it.  Then rename the genav.db.XXX file, removing the three-letter facility name suffix so that the file name is now genav.db.

Run ATCpro.

If you have questions, leave a post here.

Regards

Tom

Hi Nightowl,
Notice the location for the Facilities file is in the Program Data folder, not Program files. By default Windows Explorer hides the Program Data folder where the ATCpro data files are located. If you can’t see it try “unhiding” all folders in Folder Options in Windows Explorer. Let us know if you are still having trouble.
Thanks,
Dave
