Flight setup

Is there a way to setup a flight with the aircraft already flying at a specific altitude, heading and location? For example setting approaches to an airport for practice without having to take off first.

Secondarily is there a way to save a flight/situation in mid-flight so that you can pick up where you left off later, or try a botched landing again?

Great question and I have the same one! I’m use to XP11 where you could setup easily different distances and altitudes so you can easily practice as much as possible. I have not been successful setting it up in FS2020 nor been able to change the starting altitude.

Go to the airport you want to fly to and zoom into the details. Click an inch or two away from the airport and it will put your plane there but I’m not sure if you can change the altitude or not. Anyway select that as your departure and fly!
