  • Unzip to a temporary folder. Move the "Texture.07r" Folder to your C172 Folder.
  • Copy and paste the following into the existing aircraft.cfg for the C172 replacing the 'X' in the [fltsim.X] with the next number in the sequence ( if you have no other textures other than the default, then this should be "6").

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."

Hope you enjoy.
