Specifically, what specific buttons and gauages do/show in the default aircraft. When I buy an add-on from the likes of Carenado it comes with an aircraft manual but there seems to be no such info for default aircraft like the Baron or 747?

Hi Marco, 

Thanks for your feedback. There is no official X-Plane documentation on how to fly our default planes, aside from a little bit of info on the Cessna 172 in the manual. I would recommend doing some Googling for the plane you want to know more about. There are many helpful videos out there that will walk you through certain aspects of flying.

One note though: the 747 is a somewhat special case, especially when it comes to its FMC. It has a lot of custom buttons. There is a file in the aircraft's folder called "FMC labels.txt" that goes over the button mapping.
