I accidentally deleted some default FSX aircraft out of the aircraft folder.
Is there any way I can restore the default aircraft without entirely reinstalling FSX?

Check your recycling bin, If they are not there re-install it.

Already emptied, is there no way to restore them? I really don't want to reinstall, as that would Also mean I would have to reinstall my addons and sp 1.

Mabey you can get someone to download them into a folder for you and then you can get them that way. Other that that Re-installing is the only way I know.

i think there is an option to repair

Yes, there is a repair option. I just used it the other day because my autopilot went all funky and wouldn't do LNAV, just VNAV.

Just put in the first cd, hit repair.

Then, re-run FSX SP1.

If you used the small texture pack, you will have to re-apply that.

It left everything in my modules folder alone, so I did not have to re-install fsuipc or fsinn. It might be a good idea to copy your modules folder anyway, just in case.
