Loaded up Air Racing to try out the jets and well this is what happened. I have to say I have the sudden urge to scream Yaba-Daba_Doooo!!! everytime I pass a pylon, however I’m not sure my pilot’s legs are strong enough to stop the plane when I land.

I have the same problem BUT only with the single seat version; similar PC setup as the others have described.

Absolutely, pretty embarrassing, and shows how bad Microsobo’s QA is.
I have the same problem…just hides me, doesn’t change the fact that I regret the purchase.


Yes clearly another sign this product was rushed…BUT…this is one glitch that keeps making me lol when i see it, so there’s that silver lining…


Today I purchase from marketplace in msfs20 the L39, to my surprise I see a pilot in the plane with arms and legs OUTSIDE the aircraft. Whats going on ???

Well, now we can walk those clouds:))) The first step to drivable avatars?:)))

As a temporary fix, in options ->misc you can change your pilot, copilot, and instructor pilot models to “default” and the next time you load the L-39 it should be fine. This will show the pilot models that were intended for the Albatros (with fighter helmets, oxygen mask and flight suits etc), and they won’t have any limbs sticking out.


Thanks, but it doesn’t work either

Do you see the pilots with flight suits and helmets after setting them all to default? It doesn’t work unless you restart the sim afterwards sometimes I find. After that it should stick.

I do that but not work for me… Thanks a lot anyway Maybe the reason is that I only buy the l39 Tumbling goose and the T6 Undecided

Once with pilot avtar on custom I had empty cockpit but after restart again same issue, arms and legs outside, changed to default again but no succes

Maybe but still waste of money although cheap, think it should be ok when one buys something on msfs20 marketplace.

To add to my comments, is Microsoft working on this problem ???

Please see this post here regarding tags on topics:

after setting on default and start pc again, the cockpit is empty on both seats.

Hester what must I do, just purchased a T6 and the same issue, parts of pilots outside cockpit.
When can I expect a solution else I need refund for both aircrafts, L39 and T6, I am very disappointed.
cheers Achim

That’s unfortunate. My last question then, did you purchase individual L-39s or T-6s, or the full class packs ( all 10 of each type )?

I have a weird suspicion that the proper pilot default models for them are only being installed as part of the full Reno packages. If you go into your official packages folder, do you have this folder and anything in it?

Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Official\Steam\Asobo-airrace-renorace\SimObjects\Humans\Pilot_RR

If not then there would be no default pilot to load, hence a possibly empty cockpit unless you choose a pilot.
