Go to the Select flight page. Select the stored flight that you want then check the box at the bottom that says " Make this the default flight". Smile

This would be a good time to say, RTFM!!! (ReadTheFreakingManual). Seriously FS2004 has good documentation online in the Learning Center. A little time spent there will greatly improve your FlightSim experience.

If the best you can offer is "RTFM" i suggest you dont bother.

We are all here for practical help..... if we were all to simply RTFM from front to back and memorise every last word without error then this forum would be dead.

Such comments in my view are on a parr with "google it".

In summary RTFM is a response that should not be welcome here.

A question not asked is a question not answered

Well put Kianok. Clap

Think of it this way. Suppose that you're in a gym and a stranger ask you what time the gym closes. Do you tell them " go to the front door, turn around and read the sign! No, you tell them it's 8:00PM or you don't know or you're not sure. You are polite. You may think it's lazy to just ask you but if you say the first statement, and they are bigger, you would get your butt kicked. Let's be nice and polite. I agree with you Kianok.

Wscott52: It's just a small question, it should not bother you, just don't answer if it makes you mad.

Sorry but the google it or RTFM response get my goat every time.

Yes, some times there are what seem to be simple questions but we all have to start somewhere.

To me it's a bit like screaming at a learner driver... that was us once upon a time!

Unfortunately, politeness goes out the window in some cases on the internet Rolling Eyes

I was wondering if they had never think of the fact that probably they will put a question once...
Would they like to been answered by this way...I just wondering... Dont Know

This forum is the best forum on the internet that I have seen for asking questions (even forums that have nothing to do with aviation)

Everytime I asked a question here, I always got a few great answers, and everyone willing to answer every question I asked no matter how beginner (or n00bish) it was Smile

Also everytime I answered a question for somebody else, I always got a big thank-you for answering it Very Happy

I also think that guests are very "under-control" here. Unlike in the gallery guests were abusing the system, it doesn't happen at all in the forum with guests.

Thumbs Up!

His question had already been answered accurately. I thought the rest of my post showed the first sentence was mainly in jest. FS2004 is an extremely complicated application and reading what documentation is provided is one of the best ways to get the most out of it. His question was very basic and the answer to it is at the bottom of the Select Flights page. I came here with questions that didn't seem to have an answer in the documentation or MS online Knowledge Base. I'm sure at times I will have questions that are in the documentation but were missed by me. My comment was meant to be a helpful suggestion to enable him to get the most out of his FS experience. So to all who took offense, "Lighten Up, Francis".
