Aircraft initiation failed, what does that signify?


Recommended Posts

It could also mean you have a saved flight, possibly your default flight, that calls for a plane you have gotten rid of.


When do you see this message?


Can you click past it and move on?

What does aircraft initiation failed signify. HOW DO YOU FIX THIS SITUATON?


Did you mean aircraft initialization failed? Could this be another TDS 787 install gone awry? How about a full explanation of what you are trying to do.

Still thinking about a new flightsim only computer!  ✈️

Asccording to Microsoft FSX SDK

It could mean you simply misspelled the file name. In cfg, the line 'sim=xxx' points to the air file name (xxx). Check the spelling. And any spacing. It must be EXACTLY spelled like the air file is spelled, including symbols ('_', etc) used to make up the (air) file name.

PS: When doing edits to cfg or rename of files, etc, first choose 'World/Go to Airport', pick a runway (FSX remembers this) so when you get that error, and you wind up on the South pole in the water, you can just do 'World/Go To Airport' and click 'Ok' and you'll quickly be back at a 'safe' place (to start over). Then go add fuel and restart engines.
