This article describes how to add and remove the interior cockpit views in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000.


By default, the interior cockpit views for each aircraft are stored in the following location

drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\FS2000\Aircraft\aircraft\Panel

where drive is the drive letter for the hard disk on which Flight Simulator 2000 is installed, and aircraft is the the name of the folder for an installed aircraft.

For example, the interior cockpit views for the Boeing 737-400 are stored by default in the following folder:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\FS2000\AIRCRAFT\B737_400\PANEL

The interior cockpit views are bitmap (.bmp) files, and are named:

  • Forward_left.bmp
  • Forward_right.bmp
  • Left.bmp
  • Rear.bmp
  • Rear_left.bmp
  • Rear_right.bmp
  • Right.bmp
  • Up.bmp

To delete these views, open the Panels folder for the appropriate airplane and then delete the files in this list.

To add or restore these views, uninstall Flight Simulator 2000, and then reinstall Flight Simulator 2000 using either the Typical or Custom installation option.

To remove Flight Simulator 2000:

  1. Start Flight Simulator 2000.
  2. On the Flight Simulator 2000 startup screen, click Uninstall.
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen to remove Flight Simulator 2000.
