X-Plane 10 Global Flight Simulator Software

X-Plane 10 is the world's most comprehensive, powerful flight simulator, and has the most realistic flight model available for personal computers.

What's New in X-Plane 10?
The most important additions to X-Plane 10 are:

  •  many high-quality aircraft models with detailed 3-D cockpits
  • a brand new system for auto-generating plausible scenery for the entire world
  • a new, highly-detailed cloud and weather rendering system
  • a flight model with improved accuracy and even greater power
  • a completely redone ATC and AI Aircraft system
  • the ability to more fully utilize multi-core CPUs for enhanced realism.

Aircraft
X-Plane allows you to fly any of over 30 pre-installed aircraft ranging from the Bell 206 Jet-Ranger helicopter to a Cessna 172 to the supersonic SR-71 and even the Space Shuttle! The pre-installed aircraft include single and multi engine props, corporate and commercial jets, gliders, helicopters, and VTOL aircraft such at the V-22 Osprey and AV8-B Harrier. There are thousands of other aircraft that can be freely download over the internet and you can even build your own aircraft to work with X-Plane!

Aircraft Include: Cirrus Vision SF50, Beechcraft Baron 58, Cessna 172SP, Piaggo P.180 Avanti, Stinson L-5 Sentinel, ASK-21 glider, Bell 47 helicopter, Beechcraft King Air C90B, F-22 Raptor, Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, Bombardier Canadair CL-415, Boeing 777-200, Piper PA-46 Malibu, Northrop B-2 Spirit, Robinson R22 Beta helicopter, X-15 and X-30 X-Planes, Great Planes PT-60 RC plane, McDonnell Douglas KC-10 Extender, Boeing 747-400 and 747-100, Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey, Boeing B-52G Stratofortress, Van’s RV-3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Rockwell B-1B Lancer, Viggen JA37, F-4 Phantom II, Bell 206 helicopter, Boeing AV-8B Harrier II, Sikorsky S-61 helicopter, Space Shuttle Orbiter, and Thunder Tiger Raptor 30 v2 RC helicopter. Additionally, more than 1,400 additional aircraft models can be downloaded from the Internet

Scenery and Airports
X-Plane scenery is world-wide, with scenery for the entire planet Earth between -60 and +74 degrees latitude. On Earth, users can land at any of over 33,000 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
Weather is variable from clear skies and high visibility to thunderstorms with controllable wind, wind shear, turbulence, and microbursts! Rain, snow and clouds are available for an instrument flying challenge, and thermals are available for the gliders! Real weather conditions can be downloaded from the internet, allowing you to fly in the actual weather that currently exists for a specific location!

Instruments
X-Plane also has detailed failure-modeling, with 35 systems that can be failed manually or randomly, when you least expect it! You can fail instruments, engines, flight controls, and landing gear at any moment. X-Plane is also extremely customizable, allowing you to easily create textures, sounds, and instrument panels for your own airplanes that you design or the planes that come with the sim.

Customize
While X-Plane is the world's most COMPREHENSIVE flight sim, your purchase also comes with Plane-Maker (to create your own airplanes) World-Maker (to create your own scenery), and Weather Briefer (to get a weather briefing before the flight if you use real weather conditions downloaded from the net).

What's Included:

  • Airfoil-Maker (to make airfoils for your aircraft if you would like to make your own planes).
  • Plane-Maker (to make your own planes and helicopters)
  • X-Plane (the actual flight simulator)

A bit of a let down
by medic215 from Marshalltown, IA (KMIW) 

Pros: Lighting, flight model/handling,
Cons: Controls, poor airport scenery, ATC, lack of prominent landmarks from VFR sectionals
Review: If all you want is a really good flight model and great lighting effects, then this is the sim for you. As a real world pilot and ex-FSX user (would still be if it worked better in Win8.1). It lacks some very important features that SHOULD have been a piece of cake for the programmer who did many things in this sim so beautifully. The only airport structures/buildings in the sim are in the demo area (Seattle). The ATC is worse that FSX. AWOS/ASOS all read like a really poorly done ATIS - (e.g. the ASOS or AWOS all have "Information ______"), hardly realistic. Some airport markings, especially at runway intersections, not even close to real world. Configuring Saitek Yoke, throttles and rudder peddles very time consuming and a little confusing - even for an experienced flight simmer and I.T. guy like myself!

Bark is louder than the bite!!!
by A real private pilot from Texas 

Pros: Lots of planes if you are into videos pretend games.
Cons: Extremely difficult to set up and use.
Review: I've had my pilot license since 1969. FSX is much, much better than the x-plane. On a large screen TV it is impossible to tell the difference between a real 172 SP in any type of instrument conditions from the Gold X flight simulater. I had so much trouble with x-plane I removed it from my computer and went back to the Microsoft Gold X. There is no comparison if you are interested in staying current, but if you want to play video games x-plane is the way to go.

too much whiz and no bang
by JACK from Lenoir NC USA 

Pros: none
Cons: EVERYTHING I TRY
Review: I bought an Avatar Gaming Computer just for this game. It has plenty of power with Windows 8. X10 seems to install but when I try to fly I cannot get off the ground and my Saitek 52 controls will not work at all with it. I have tried it on windows 7 and XP with negative results. I guess, even though I have piloted real airplanes and was an instructor on the F-4 simulator and an instructor in the F-4 I am too much of a novice to make this work

Don't be so quick to write X-Plane off
by A Customer from United States 

Review: I am writing this review primarily to enlighten those of you who have voiced disappointment with X-Plane. A lot of you complain about the lack of scenery in the sim, the airports being bare with no buildings, etc. If that is all that you are looking for in a flight sim, then indeed you will be disappointed with X-Plane. X-Plane is not about eye candy. I have been flying in X-Plane since the days of version 5, and eye candy has never been a part of the initial package. X-Plane from what my experience with it has been is about the realism and accuracy of the flight model. It puts more emphasis on the physics of flight than the look and appearance of the background scenery. There are scenery packages (both freeware and payware) that you can get to improve the realism of the scenery. Check out http://www.x-plane.org. You can find a lot of scenery packs, aircraft, utilities, etc in the downloads section. There also an online store where additional aircraft and scenery packs can be purchased.

X Plane 10
by Jimmy from APO AE USA 

Pros: Realistic flight controls
Cons: ATC function
Review: This program has it's good points. The controls feel more realistic under IMC when compared to FSX, but graphics leave a bit to be desired, particularly the weather. The ATC function is limited and will vector you into terrain. I've been sticking with FSX.

Very realistic
by Kevin from Green Bay WI USA 

Pros: as real as flying. Actually it is easier to land my real mooney than the xplane mooney.
Cons: Limited airport detail
Review: Very realistic controls. I am a real life pilot that owns a Mooney. I puchased a Mooney x plane to practice ILS approaches. Overall I am pleased with the detail (very high).
ATC is marginal so don't buy it to practice your com skills. Pilot Edge is great for that. I really like that you can go into plane maker and tweek your plane to better represent the characteristics of what you fly. Great Value to practice or learn on. Must for students. Very handy to practice fly new airports before you fly to them. Scenery mapping accurate but no buildings at most airports.

by A Customer from Chesnee, SC

Demo was really dissapointing
by X-C-130 crew member from Idaho 

Pros: Great audio and graphics, and the realism was very good.
Cons: Setting up flight controls way to difficult for a typical user. Maybe need two versions of the software, one for teh newbe and one for the expereinced.
Review: I usually check out a demo on a program before I buy it to see what it really looks like. I was disappointed even in the demo. I looked through the setup for the flight controls and couldn't calibrate my throttles, forward went back, back went forward, couldn't switch views to see outside or rotate within the cockpit and though it was technical enough for me to handle it was shall we say an interesting experience.
The demo needs to be a bit more friendly to use, less technical to show the user a relative experience prior to purchasing though show its capabilities.

VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!
by Robert from Los Angeles, CA 

Pros: Eye catching graphics only in some areas and some planes
Cons: Often joystick recalibration. Bad 3D screen commands.
Review: X-PLANE promise to impress you with graphics which are just fine in a few areas but will disappoint you in a long run. Most airports are building-empty. Try Dubai's airport. The joystick fails to hold calibration. You have to re-calibrate almost every other flight. 3D cockpit sucks. Only fun is to land in freeways and ghosting through traffic, that's about it. This product is not ready folks. There are better ways to expend $100. Get FSX (not that perfect either but less disappointing) and you will still have some money for a decent joystick.

X-Plane 10 ... Very disappointing.
by Nima from Oakville ON Canada 

Pros: 1. Great graphical performance. 2. Highly real night environment.
Cons: 1. Airports without buildings and jetways. 2. Almost without major landmarks. 3. Many default aircraft without 3D cockpit. 4. Premitive flight planning feature which disallows SIDs and STARs.
Review: I am a flight simulation fan with hundreds of flight hours in Microsoft's FS9 and FSX environments.

I recently purchased X-Plane 10 and from the early moments, I was very disappointed... A high performance flight simulation software (in terms of graphics, night time in particular) without major airport buildings and jetways!

Then I reviewed people's comments many claiming that, those like me who are migrating from FSX to X-Plane world have grown "false expectations" from a flight simulation software and to be fair, they should not be concerned about abcense of major airports! Then I realized in YouTube that, the two widely presented and bragged about features of X-Plane are:

1. Highway signs can be illuminated by aircraft lights at night
2. The location of all main roads in cities is pretty close to the reality

and then, I start wondering if these "highly attractive" features were more necessary than airport buildings for a flight sim software.

Some X-Plane fans are claiming that, it's a matter of time and airport details will gradually be presented by third party programmers. This is not acceptable. I strongly believe that, X-Plane without airport buildings, without SID/STAR and without majors landmarks is simply an incomplete software. It must have been equipped with such basic content prior to distribution to milions of flight simulation fans around the world.

I paid almost $100 for this software and now I have uninstalled it and gone back to my FSX. I am very discouraged...

Very helpful product for practicing IFR APPROACHES
by Jeff D. from Sandusky OH USA 

Pros: GREAT FOR PRACTICING IFR APPROACHES
Cons: GPS could be better/ unable to split screens, but it might just be me.
Review: I use to use Microsoft X for practicing my IFR approaches for my IFR rating, until my computer went down and I couldn't find my disc to load it back on. Downloaded Microsoft Flight, but it wasn't the product for my needs. Downloaded x-plane 10 before my check ride and flew all possible approaches beforehand and my check ride was a breeze. Don't care for the Gps features on it though and so far I am unable to split the screens like I did Microsoft X. Would 100% buy again.!!!

by Dennis from San Antonio TX USA 
Review: I am simply underqualified to be able to download this software and get it "up and running." The instructions/user manual have to come by way of PDF, and they are written WAY technical and too verbal to get things working. My software thus is sitting on my shelf...uninstalled. I feel I have wasted my money on X-Plane 10. FSX is much more user friendly. What a disappointment this purchase was.

Not much there...
by T0mmy from Seattle WA USA 

Pros: Good flight models, weather realism, terrain mesh.
Cons: Lack of refinement in scenery, and multiple monitor support.
Review: Promising Sim but needs refinement. Must incorporate photo-realistic scenery and have more airports. I am sticking with FS2004 because of the familiarity with key commands, frame rates and $ invested in scenery.

Review: I thought I would try this simulator out, was not impressed. I was in my 182, flew for about an hour, came home to work on my landings and was all over the place.  Is not close enough to flying for me.
