Clearing FSX Flight Plans

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks:When I load a saved flight that I saved with an old flight plan, how do I clear it? When I try to clear the current plan the "OK" button is dimmed and I have to cancel to get back to my flight. This also means that the GPS still shows the path of the old plan which is annoying. Is there a way around this other than clearing the plan BEFORE I save the flight?Thanks!Airbus

Not that I'm aware of, if I'm reading your post correctly. The simplest solution is to save your flights without flight plans already included in them. Then you can just "load" a new flight plan from ones you have saved separately in FSX (or create a new one from scratch) after the flight loads. If you don't want any flight plan at all then, for something like just a quick VFR trip around the area, you are good to go as soon as the flight loads.If what you are doing is flying a flight with a flight plan, then after landing saving the flight so you can continue on from there in the next session, then the saved flight will still have the old plan in it. Only option I know of then is to load the flight, then load a new flight plan for the next flight segment.FalconAF

Airbus,you can cut the flightplan info out of the saved flight. Just compare the contents of a .FLT with and without a flightplan and it should be obvious which are the relevant sections. If you don't remember until after loading the flight: open flight file, cut FP sections, save, LOAD a different flight to flush things out, then reload the original flight.here's the relevant ones:{ATC_Aircraft.0}<<----- this sectionActiveFlightPlan=True <<----- **{ATC_ActiveFlightPlan.0}<<----- this sectiontitle=KEZM to KWRBdescription=KEZM, KWRBtype=VFR{GPS_Engine}<<----- this sectionFilename=C:Documents and SettingsLOYDMy DocumentsFlight Simulator X FilesGA_06 <<-------- flightplan nameposition=N32
