I'd start with One Click Install.  Program will allow you to select airlines of your choice and will install the aircraft model, paints, and flight plans.

Program at the link below.

Currently commercial airlines and some, but its the growing area General aviation.

I have downloaded and installed the manager but as I understand the One Click doesn´t work in P3D v5. Also the link points to Manager and not One Click.

It'll work with 5 (you may have some "bright" aircraft until all the fx issues are updated for v5).   

Have you actually run the program? 

If so you'll be able to install AI traffic via the program.

Yes I have run the Manager and after some initial building of the airports, it takes a looong time even on the 2-3 startup, I get this attached screen. Under FS Settings I can NOT Add/Select anything it is greyed out Guess I have to read the manual/tutorial one more time. Also it says that the OCI is only for P3D v4+

Short update. Seems that when I have the Forum-page open I can not performa any actions. After closing the forum-window I wanted to download/install some AI. As I did not have any flightplans installed I wanted to use the Bulk-Oci function and marked 5 airlines but pressing download nothing happens, only if I choose 1 airline I can download/save the file. Need some more experimenting i guess.

Sorry, but my brain just do not get it.

Jack,

Please post your logs for Chris and Kai to take a look at.  They will be in the folder your AI manger is in.

Your OCI setup looks right. (based on the logs)

To bulk install airlines:

Click "Online" --> "Available online"
Select the "Multiselection" checkbox (bottom left)
select the airlines you like to install
press the "Bulk Install" button

When you open the sim, you should get a box asking if you want to activate the AI. Say yes, and it should be ready when you go to an airport where you know that the AI is. I.e. if you have installed Delta you can look at Atlanta.

Nope started the sim but no question about activatibng the add-on. This is my C:\Users\JJJac\OneDrive\Dokument\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons library, no entry for Apha-India.

Update: Created a folder in my P3Dv4 Add-ons named AlphaIndia, Copied the file add-ons.xml from the OCI-Configuration folder to  P3Dv4 Add-ons/AlphaIndia, started my P3D v4.5 and was asked if I wanted to enable AI. Now I just have to find an airport to see if the aircrafts are loaded.
