When I launch Xplane 11 I am automatically put in a glider in space with the following message displayed 'This will start you off 5,340 miles downrange at 450,000 and 15,400 mph.

The re-entry takes a long time and is an extreme challenge.

Watch the right EFIS to fly the vertical part of the re-entry and the middle EFIS for the horizontal guidance to Edwards FB

If you have too much speed, oull up to a higher pitch for more drag, and do steep S-turns to descend.'

Since it spawns me in a glider with no way to change aircraft or location I can't make the descent. If i try and make a new flight I am loaded back into the same place. If i try to teleport using the map I am kept in the same place, same goes for trying to load a previously saved flight. I have uninstalled the game verified the files checked out the files myself and I still have no idea what is causing this. If anyone can help it would be very much appreciated.

Also note this only happened after i got a new throttle quadrant, I hadn't played the game in a while because I was waiting for it and when I launched it this happened but i see no reason for the throttle to have caused anything.

This is what I found in the log.txt file

Have you tried resetting to default preferences? My best guess is that a button or key has been assigned to the shuttle re-entry scenario. Or it has been set to start at launch. Either way, if you reset to default prefs it should stop happening. 

Find the Steam root install folder:

  • Start STEAM. Goto LIBRARY.
  • Right click on X-Plane 
  • Choose Properties.
  • In the rising window choose LOCAL FILES.
  • And than choose BROWSE LOCAL FILES.
  • Now you are in the X-Plane Main (Root) Folder and you see the path in your file explorer.
Then move the preferences folder (found in the Output folder) to the desktop, then restart X‑Plane and default preferences will be restored. If the default preferences do not fix your problem, you can simply replace them with the folder you moved to the desktop and restore your personalized settings.
