DELETING AIRCRAFT

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

Is it possible to delete unused aircraft files from within FSX SE in order to save disk space??

If you installed an aircraft, you can also remove it! However note:

  • DO NOT delete default aircraft
  • make sure they are not used by AI
  • you may want to leave their gauges. Other aircraft may use them!

What many people do is create a backup "Hangar" folder on another drive and pull those aircraft out of FSX and place them in this folder for future use/backup.  Like stated above if you use freeware aircraft usually they use many of the gauges from the default so you'll see some issues. 

 

I personally don't use any freeware aircraft right now so I know there will not be a problem removing most of the default.  I only really have the default GA aircraft in my folder for AI usage. 

 

If you do want to save disk space and have another drive.  I highly recommend mklink or junction magic for aliasing folders.

I recommend creating a storeage file on another drive to store unused add on aircraft.  Absolutely do not remove any of the stock FSX aircraft.  If you do not want to see them in the aircraft selection window, just go to each aircraft folder and rename the panel file to something like panel.off.
