Be sure to to backup your aircraft.cfg file before installation.

Method A:

  • Just Copy the texture.972 folder and the aircraft.cfg file to your default Microsoft Flight Simulator X, C172 folder:
    EG - C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\C172
  • NOTE! Only install this way if the aircraft.cfg file has not been modified.

If the aircraft.cfg file has been modified. Use METHOD B.

Method B:

  • Copy the texture.972 folder to your default Microsoft Flight Simulator X, C172 folder:
    EG - C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\C172
  • Edit the aircraft.cfg file by adding the following lines:

[fltsim.XX]
title=Cessna Skyhawk 172SP Paint6
sim=Cessna172SP
model=
panel=
sound=
texture=972
kb_checklists=Cessna172SP_check
kb_reference=Cessna172SP_ref
atc_id=CNF-972
ui_manufacturer="Cessna"
ui_type="C172SP Skyhawk"
ui_variation="silver over Blue "
ui_typerole="Single Engine Prop"
ui_createdby="Microsoft Corporation"
description="A stable and trustworthy plane, most pilots have logged at least a few hours in a Cessna 172, since it's the most widely available aircraft in the rental fleet, and is used by most flight schools. Since the first prototype was completed in 1955, more than 35,000 C172s have been produced, making it the world's most popular single-engine plane. One of Cessna's first tricycle-gear airplanes, the 172 quickly became the favorite of a growing class of business pilots. Its reliability and easy handling (along with thoughtful engineering and structural updates) have ensured its continued popularity for decades."

  • Where as the XX in the [fltsim.XX] is the next aircraft in sequence.
  • Save aircraft.cfg file and restart flight simulator. The new repaint should now be available.
