FS9 Model converter to FSX

Is there a way to convert FS9 ai aircraft to FSX so that it will activate the Jetways and other functions?
How can this be done?

FS9 aircraft cannot be converted to FSX format. However, FSX jetways should operate with FS9 aircraft.

The correct operation of a jetway depends on certain settings in the aircraft.cfg file. I know the matter has been diecussed on fsDeveloper. If you do a search on fsDeveloper for "Jetway", you should find it. Otherwise, a post in the aircraft design forum may help.

As Don said I think it is mainly a cfg setting to get the jetways working. The locations of the doors must be defined. There is nothing in the mdl for it.

With a future update of modelconverterx I hope to allow conversion of ai aircraft from fs2004 to fsx mdl format, since it can give some performance improvements to use fsx materials. But at the moment I am not aware of a tool that can do this.
Thanks to both of you. I did the search and finally found it. I copied the exits from several planes in FSX and placed that data in the FS9 aircraft.cfg and it works fine.
Again thanks a bunch ......
