I dont know how to do that, but why would you want to? I think it's fantastic flying along and seeing random airstrips out my window and then going to the map to see what they are. I can see removing the generic airlines (too bad that also removes the GenAv as well), but the small airfields add character!

SoonerLT, there is a file on the ProjecAI library, http://www.projectai.com/official/packages/special.php, that will add back in your GA traffic. There are a couple of different ones, I think you would want the one with realistic registrations. To install these, you will need the PAI installer, which is also on that same page.

I changed the "traffic030528.bgl" file to "traffic030528.lbg" in order to get rid of those generic airlines. Will that file from PAI add back the GenAv without adding back the generic airliners as well? If so, that would be great! PAI is what I use for all of my AI traffic already (because I'm a cheapskate)! I like PAI, but my only complaint is that there is not enough traffic. Even when I turn the traffic slider all the way up, MEM will only have like 3 planes parked across the entire airport. Thanks for the tip!

The files will only add in general aviation. I do not use them myself though. I use Ultimate Traffic, which kept the default GA traffic from Microsoft and then updated it to operate mostly in the day (no late night GA VFR flights) and it has realistic registrations for the country it flies in also. And in addition, I use many general aviation packages from the UltimateGA group as well. I have everything from the small Beech props, to Cessna props and bizjets, a variety of Lear jets, Gulfstreams, Boeing BBJs and more. My GA is very diverse and fun to spot.

Is UltimateGA a commercial software package? I thought about Ultimate Traffic and Traffic2004 (i think that's what it's called, right?), but like I said before, I'm just too much of a cheapskate. I'm in grad school and getting ready to get married, so my discretionary income is limited to a pizza once a month!
I do think Ultimate and 2004 would be nice at some point though. If it increases the traffic significantly, that would be fantastic. It's so boring to fly into an airline's hub and see 3-4 scattered aircraft!
Ultimate Traffic uses real flight schedules, so the traffic that it provides is realistic. I just flew out of Denver today and it was packed to the gills with United & Frontier. Ohare is packed with United and American as well. Sometimes it provides too much traffic and even with a good AFCAD that opens up multiple runways for arrivals and departures there can be a wait to take off. But that is not a fault of UT, it is more of a fault on FS9 and the way that it handels things. I am not sure about the other packages out there, I think that they have the real airlines, but the schedules are not real. And one of them has the A380 and B787 flying around in real liveries, which is nowhere near to being realistic.
