I found it thank you for your help. I also noticed a file in there called aircraft that contains many aircfraft but each file only has a file in it called state. when I read the file it lists accumulated time. what is this file? there are aircraft in there that are no longer in my sim, and haven't been for some time.Thanks biggjoe

state.cfgs just keep track of engine run time and any changes you've made to the ATC ID or airline in the select aircraft menu. Hourmeter type gauges such as the default Cessna's tachometer/tach time gauges access the state.cfg to report tach time. State.cfgs don't get deleted when you uninstall an aircraft. If you later reinstall the aircraft, accumulated engine time will pick up where you left off when you uninstalled the aircraft. Perfectly safe to delete any of these files, a new one will be created the next time you load the aircraft, but with engine run time "zero".Jim
