It controls how the aircraft performs in FS. It's kind of the like the aircraft's pilot if you know what I mean.

Quoting DC-10 Levo (Reply 1):

Only partially true.
It indeed controls all flying characteristics (power/ drag/brakepower/....) of the plane but all values in the aircraft.cfg file supersede those in the air.ed file.
