not quite sure where this really should be posted but maybe one of the kind Staff members will be able to shift it to the right location.

Often members will be looking for free tools, applications and or programs to complete their projects.  There are a lot of great freeware tools, applications and programs available that are scattered around the internet but often a little difficult to find, especially when you don't really know what you are looking for.  
The purpose of this post is to give direct links to freeware tools/programs/applications for use by others.  I'll add more links as I find more  or you might have a link or two that will be usefull to others, feel free to add them. I have also added links for FSX Service Packs and FS9 SDK.

A great collection Mr Weedy.  I sure would have found something like this helpful when I started editing/ creating paints and scenery.
