This file is a replacement for FSX's default situation file (which is dropping you off in mid-air over some airfield, and the first thing you need to do after launching the flight is to gain control over your diving ultralight).
The file puts you onto the apron of the very same airfield (this time in the default 172), everything is switched off and your tanks are empty.
OK, but why should that be an advantage? The fact is, this file is used as a template or "skeleton" for any other flight being created by the "Free flight" option. So, if you want to get on board of your airliner next time, the first thing will no longer be to shut down the engines, but to switch on the battery switch :-) So, what this file really does is: Henning Schaefer.
You may find our startup/shutdown tutorial over in the Knowledge Center helpful - it covers cold and dark scenarios.

Have you ever started up FSX and found yourself being more or less dropped off in the middle of the air, forced to take control right away, sitting over some random airfield? Once you get used to where you are instead of being on the runway ready to take off, you can eventually take control of the aircraft.
This mod removes this irritating problem once and for all, and instead places you on the airfield below you so that you don’t need to try and gain control of everything so quickly. Now, everything starts totally switched off and the tanks is totally empty.
While this might sound like its making you do more work, you no longer have to deal with this irritating and unrealistic start to flying. Now, you can start the same way that you would in the real world; sitting there with nothing booted up and ready to go, requiring you to do it all yourself.
Whilst some might not really mind the way that a free flight can start, this can be a problem for others who want to do it themselves and get the “full” experience. What you need to consider doing here, then, is looking at the way that you like to start off and, if you would rather a cold and dark option, this can be the way to go. It’s a simple install and works with any free flight that you start up, allowing you to get a more relaxing start to your flight.
The fact is that if you used this as the main way to start flying, you’ll get used to the beginning procedures far more readily and you’ll also get used to some of the more challenging aspects of getting started up. So, when you next step onboard your aircraft next time you will need to hit the battery switch instead – does that not sound a fair bit more realistic?
Now, when you need to save up for the night and park up your aircraft you won’t be starting up the next day as if you never left; it adds that extra little bit of realism to the flight and to make the whole thing feel a little bit more authentic in general. Also, it gets you used to flicking the switches and getting yourself ready to start flying immediately. When worked in conjunction with other mods it really does ramp up that realism rate quite a bit, making it really easy to fly around and get used to the way that you are supposed to start up a flight.
Want that extra bit of challenge and realism added into your flight? Then this mod is an easy way to get started.
