Welcome on Simnetwork, install an aircraft into fsx its easy:

Aircrafts are placed into FSX or Microsoft Flight Simulator X/SimObjects/Airplanes.

When you install a new aircraft you have to install it there.

Each aircraft inside Microsoft Flight Simulator X/SimObjects/Airplanes usually has a main folder, example Grumman_Goose_G21A

Inside this folder ,to have a working functional aircraft, you need 4 folders named:

model
panel
sound
texture


always inside the main aircraft folder, in this case Grumman_Goose_G21A, there are some files

aircraft.cfg
Grumman_Goose_G21A.air


without those folders and files aircraft will not display inside FSX.
Aircraft.cfg its essential to set how aircraft flies, lands, etc but obviously you need to be an expert to modify those settings, so leave this files as it is.

Important. if the panel folder do not have a bmp image it MUST point to the panel folder of another aircraft.
Example of panel.cfg pointing to another panel folder

[fltsim]
alias=B737_800\panel


to add more textures to an existing aircraft, you have to add the new texture folder (obviously named with another name)into the main aircraft folder.

model
panel
sound
texture

texture.2


then you will have to copy the first lines into aircraft.cfg settings and copy after all the lines of [fltsim.0] leaving a space between eachone

[fltsim.0]
title=Boeing 737-800 Paint1
sim=Boeing737-800
model=
panel=
sound=
texture=1


copy and after this paste and modify renaming texture=1 to texture=2, and change also the title's line

[fltsim.0]
title=Boeing 737-800 Paint1
sim=Boeing737-800
model=
panel=
sound=
texture=2


It will looks as this

[fltsim.0]
title=Boeing 737-800 Paint1
sim=Boeing737-800
model=
panel=
sound=
texture=1
kb_checklists=Boeing737-800_check
kb_reference=Boeing737-800_ref
atc_id=N737W
atc_airline=Boeing
atc_flight_number=
ui_manufacturer="Boeing"
ui_type="737-800"
ui_variation="Boeing livery"
ui_typerole="Commercial Airliner"
ui_createdby="Microsoft Corporation"
description="One should hardly be surprised that the world's most prolific manufacturer of commercial aircraft is also the producer of the world's most popular jetliner. The 737 became the best-selling commercial jetliner worldwide when orders for it hit 1,831 in June 1987 (surp****ing Boeing's own 727 as the previous champ). However, it wasn't always that way\s in the first few years of production, there were so few orders that Boeing considered canceling the program. They didn't, and the airplane has more than proven itself in over three decades of service."

to show the new texture thumbnail on the main list aircraft you have to add, inside the new texture folder, a file called thumbnail.jpg with the image file of the new texture. You can use a snapshot program downloadable into our fsx utilities section and resize the image with an editor as picasa http://picasa.google.com/ , search in google it's free.

i hope this can help you.
