I don't know about FSX but in FS9 the default flights were all in the
Flights folder. I'm sure I tweaked these to turn the engines off the FS9
models as they all came on screen with everything lit up too. Didn't the
C172 always load with engine already running?

Loading, resetting correctly, then saving as, eg,
AIRCRAFT...Baron.g1000,  is probably the easiest solution.
If loading it to replace an earlier a/c load, I wouldn't have thought it
has a flt file. Nothing in the Panel.cfg that covers load config of a
gauge...
