Just create a new flight with a Cessna or something simple (located at any airport you like), crank the engine up, put the mixture on full rich, turn on the avionics (fill the fuel tanks if you like too) and save the flight, and tick 'make this the default flight'. All your new flights will then use that set up as the basis for how they begin.Al

One easy way to restore the original default flight is to edit your FSX.cfg file.Using Nortepad, look for the line under the [uSERINTERFACE] label which says situation=It will be followed by the path to whatever FLT file you are using as the new default flight.Simply remove everything after the situation= (being sure not to get anything on the line below it).Save your edit. FSX will now use the original default flight when you restart it.
