Overview

X-Plane 11 is the world’s most comprehensive and powerful flight simulator for personal computers, and it offers the most realistic flight model available!

Welcome to the world of props, jets, single- and multi-engine airplanes, as well as gliders, helicopters and VTOLs. X‑Plane contains subsonic and supersonic flight dynamics, allowing users to predict the flight characteristics of the slowest aircraft or the fastest. X‑Plane includes more than 15 aircraft in the default installation, spanning the aviation industry and its history. Aircraft included range from the Sikorsky S–76 and Cessna 172 to the Space Shuttle and the B–52 Bomber. Additionally, some 2,000 additional aircraft models can be downloaded from the Internet, many of which are completely free. If those aren’t enough, users can design their own airplanes and test-fly them!

The full X‑Plane scenery package covers the Earth in stunning resolution from 74 north to 60 south latitude. Users can land at any of over 35,000 airports or test their mettle on aircraft carriers, oil rigs, frigates (which pitch and roll with the waves), or helipads atop buildings. They can also realistically model the flight of remote-controlled model aircraft, perform an air-launch in an X–15 or Space Ship One from the mother ship, fly re-entries into Earth’s atmosphere in the Space Shuttle, fly with friends over the Internet or a LAN, drop water on forest fires, or shoot approaches to aircraft carriers at night in stormy weather and rough water conditions in a damaged F–4. The situations that can be simulated are unbelievably diverse!

Weather in X‑Plane is variable from clear skies and high visibility to thunderstorms with controllable wind, wind shear, turbulence, and micro bursts. Rain, snow, and clouds are available for an instrument flying challenge, and thermals are available for the gliders. Actual weather conditions can be downloaded from the Internet, allowing users to fly in the weather that really exists at their current location!

X-Plane has detailed failure modeling, with multitudes of systems that can either be failed manually at an instructor’s command, or randomly when users least expect it! Users can fail instruments, engines, flight controls, control cables, antennae, landing gear, or any of dozens of other systems at any moment. They can also have a friend or flight instructor (locally or via the Internet, working from an Instructor’s Operating Station) fail components on the aircraft without the pilot’s knowledge. The instructor can alter the time of day, weather conditions, and failure status of hundreds of aircraft systems and components. Additionally, the instructor can relocate the aircraft to a location of his or her choice at any time.

New in X-Plane 11:
  • Overhauled fleet: Aircraft models that stand up to scrutiny, from the gear trucks to the rivets.
  • Brand new G1000: Some general aviation planes now feature a simulated Garmin 1000.
  • 3-D cockpits: Every aircraft in the fleet comes with a beautiful, usable 3-D cockpit.
  • IFR-ready cockpits: Every 3-D cockpit is usable for instrument flight.
  • Brand new user interface: Easier to learn for new users. Faster for power users.
  • Tutorials: Learn the basics of flight, navigation, & more in X-Plane.
  • Improved 3-D cockpit interaction: Cockpit controls are easier than ever to set just right.
  • Pushback tugs & fuel trucks: Watch other aircraft get service, or request services for your own aircraft.
  • New lighting, sound, & effects engine: Bringing new tools to aircraft add-on makers.
  • New scenery for Europe: Roadways, buildings, & more now feature European-specific variants.

Reviews

This is a great sim. I had the older Microsof flight sim. This is very similar but updated with better graphics. I mainly use it for IFR practice. All of the same frequencies and ILS approaches as real life. The only con I found was it requires a fairly fast computer to run it. I have a fairly new Dell laptop that was top of the line about a year ago and the sim runs in slow motion even with the detail settings turned all the way down. I bought a new Alienware gaming laptop and it runs great on that. Works well for practicing programming the garmin 430-530 and setting up for IFR.
