Default flight query

Recommended Posts

Hello AllI was wondering if its possible to alter the default flight from outside the Sim.The reason i ask is that i have removed an aircraft that was in the default flt and now the Sim wont open and crashes so i cant get access to change the default flt.i have tried reinstalling the plane and the textures etc which should work but i am not getting anyway.So if anybody knows how to change the default flt from outside the Sim i would appreciate it.cheers exasperated Andy

The default flight - the one with the Cessna 172 at Seattle - is stored in yourC:Program FilesMicrosoft GamesFlight Simulator 9Flightsother folder and has the name FLTSIM.FLT.If you open it with Notepad you should be able to scroll down to the label named {PLANE} (square brackets are not allowed here in the forum)-Mine reads as follows: (the brackets are square){Plane}Aircraft=Cessna Skyhawk 172SPLatitude=N047

Andy, just rename your Fs9.cfg file and start flight sim. It should start up fine this way. After you close the sim, you'll have a new config file and a working default flight. Then you can cut and paste your settings from the old file to the new one.R-
