Takeoff Runs Start Off-Runway, In The Mud. Can I Reset...

Recommended Posts

When I create a flight at a certain airport in FS9, the aircraft is automaticaly placed in line with the runway, but about 1,000' off to one side, in the mud. I have to taxi back or slew the plane over to the runway to make my takeoff. Is there a way to reset the start position for this particular airport? It only happens at this field, none of the others.

BTW, if you (or the AFCAD author) forgets to put a start position circle on the active runway or you renumber a runway and don't renumber the start position circle and it's the active runway, you will be placed at the airport reference point instead of the runway when using the Go To Airport menu.--Tom GibsonCal Classic Propliner Page: http://www.calclassic.comFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.comDrop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

Thanks gents, I haven't advanced to AFCAD yet, but I'll keep your advice in mind when I do. Should be soon as I would like to get this little annoyance corrected!! Jon :-wave

The approach I've used where new scenery corrects default positions, is to slew to the new/correct location, then Save that flight. When you restart the saved flight, you are "good for go".Alex Reid
