I have found that on the "Select a Flight" screen that the Delete Flight button is very prominent and leads to students deleting flights that they intended to Fly Now. Once a student has deleted a flight, the only way to get it back is to re-install the program; a process that takes a couple of hours.

My solution is to create a backup the flights directory. Go to c:\program files\microsoft games\flight simulator\ and copy the folder flights. Go to c:\program files\depco, inc\ and paste the folder you just copied.

Now you can copy the backup directory anytime one of your flights gets deleted or saved with the wrong settings. I even made a batch file that I use to restore the flights if something gets changed or deleted.

****************restore.bat for Flight Transportation****************

@echo off

title DEPCO Flights Restore Program
echo This program should be run anytime that the
echo Microsoft Flight Simulator Flights need to restored.

cd %PROGRAMFILES%"\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9"
rd "Flights" /s /q
md "Flights"
xcopy "*" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\Flights\" /i /e /y /q

echo Files Restored!
