|**********Important Notice **********|
|Cirrus is a mature software product and will not have future updates. The
following links are provided for re-installation of the product. Database
updates will continue to be available and current.
Cirrus 5.0 needs to be loaded into a clean directory. If you elect to load it in an existing Cirrus Directory you must remove all previous Cirrus files from the "Cirrus" directory and all files from the subdirectory "DATA".
Exception: Saved flight plans with extension .CSC do not have to be removed and the Cirrus.ini file does not have to be removed.
If you elect to remove the .INI file make sure you have your access code and password to re-enter.

The Cirrus Airport and Navigational Aids database is available on a 56-day update basis.
To reduce download time and make Cirrus' display less cluttered, database updates are now available in three versions: all airports, airports with at least one runway of 2,500 feet or more, and airports with at least one runway of 5,000 feet or more. Note: The type of runway and its surface could be of any construction: asphalt, concrete, turf, etc. Please check the FAA's Airport/Facility Directory or other official information to ensure that the airport's runways will meet the needs of your aircraft for landing and takeoff.
|Database Updates - Chart Date MARCH 2, 2017|
|Airports Included||Cirrus 5||Cirrus 4 & Earlier||Size (bytes)|
|Runways of 2,500 ft or more||cu_rwy25_5.exe||cu_rwy25.exe||415,579|

Installation instructions for database updates are given below.
There are quite a few new airports in this file, especially the file that contains "All Airports and Navaids," compared to the original Cirrus database. When you do a database update, it will ovewrite the following data files in the C:\cirrus\data directory:
FAA.DAT FAANAMES.DAT NAMES.DAT VOR.DAT
NOTE: This update will not affect the user defined waypoints you have entered into Cirrus.
Attention! Since Airport and Navaid data changes every 56 days, loading this new information may affect the routes you have saved. Please validate all of your saved routes to ensure you are using the current navigation data in your flight routes.
