X-Plane 11 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 11?
The most important additions to X-Plane 11 are:

  • Overhauled fleet: Aircraft models that stand up to scrutiny, from the gear trucks to the rivets.
  • Brand new G1000: Many 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.

What's Included:

  • Univeral platforms:Windows, Mac, and Linux versions all included
  • Worldwide scenery
  • 11 high quality aircraft with immersive 3D cockpits
  • Free internet updates for all version of 11.xx including airport improvements

X-Plane 11 System Requirements: X-Plane 11 requires a high end machine.

The minimum requirements are:

  • CPU: Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 CPU with 2 or more cores, or AMD equivalent. (Dual-core CPUs slower than 3 GHz should try the demo before purchasing.)
  • Memory: Minimum 8 GB RAM
  • Video Card: a DirectX 11-capable video card from NVIDIA, AMD or Intel with at least 1 GB VRAM

If your system is borderline, we encourage you to try the demo first. The full version of the simulator will perform exactly the same as the demo—neither better nor worse.

However, for the best experience, we highly recommend at least the following:

  • CPU: Intel Core i5 6600K at 3.5 ghz or faster
  • Memory: 16-24 GB RAM or more
  • Video Card: a DirectX 12-capable video card from NVIDIA, AMD or Intel with at least 4 GB VRAM (GeForce GTX 1070 or better or similar from AMD)
  • Joystick or Yoke and Rudders

Support Operating Systems:

  • OS X: OS X 10.10 or newer (e.g. Yosemite, El Capitan, or Sierra)
  • Windows: Windows 7, 8, or 10, 64-bit
  • Linux: Varies. While X-Plane 11 will run on Linux, we don’t provide support for specific distributions; if you want to run on Linux, you will need to try X-Plane on your distribution to see if it is compatible. With that in mind, we have developers using Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 LTS successfully.

IMPORTANT DELIVERY INFORMATION:   You can choose either a phyiscal DVD set that is shipped or a digital download edition of X-Plane 11.
If you select the download you will not be shipped any disks. Instead, you will be given a link to download X-Plane 11 as well as a product key to activate the download.  FULL installations with ALL scenery for ALL of Earth takes about 5 to 35 hours via broadband download, depending on many factors. Of course, a user can select as much or as little scenery as they would like to install when they run the installer. This is a very large download!  We generally recommend getting the DVDs instead.

If you prefer to get the DVD version of X-Plane 11 everything will be available on the DVDs but you will NOT have the option for immediate download.

Lowest Price Guaranteed!

If you find a better price elsewhere on this product we will Match that price and beat it by 10% of the difference. See Details.

A handy tool for a new Student Pilot

  • By Dry Creek from Central Texas on Thursday, May 26, 2022
  • Pros: Accurate airplane physics. Comes on DVD discs so you don't spend your life downloading.
  • Review:

    I must say that I really enjoy the upgrade from MSFS-X to X-Plane 11. I use the simulator for practicing the maneuvers that my CFI covers on each lesson, plus I use it to get the "feel" for the other airports we visit during the training sessions.

    I also use MSFS 2020 and FlightGear 2020. This is where I will start my comparisons.

    X-Plane 11 excels in having a steam-gauge C-172 stock. The actual flight characteristics in the modeling (physics) are very, very close to the older C-172H models in use at the flight school I am using. I just have to mentally convert Knots to MPH. The real-world weather seems to be accurate and closely mimics the conditions out of the field I fly from. I also have a computer that is not the strongest when it comes to flight simulators (limited by GPU - nVidea GT 1030, 2GB). It runs the Vulkan shaders and I can get a very decent FPS during all stages of flight.

    The main complaints I do have about this offering is visual realism. Right now I have the runway markers called up for KGDJ. How can we have a choice of 14 - 34 ? No, I can assure you that the runway, while short, is straight. Simple error, but obvious to even a pre-solo SP like myself. I am running the graphics a high settings, but sadly they just don't compare to the eye-candy offered in MSFS 2020. It just doesn't have the little visual cues I use for even my pattern work. On the 14 approach, I have a spot picked out for downwind leg alignment, and a certain spot to turn base at - plus another one a little further down if it's gusty and I want a longer final to ensure that I am stabilized. Neither of those points are there. The same goes for the other visual cues I look for when "practicing" pattern work at KCPT or KMWL. So, I use MSFS 2020 (on low settings) to be able to find and use those visual cues. If I am practicing maneuvers though, it's X-Plane all the way. I don't have access to a G-1000 cockpit, and MSFS 2020 doesn't offer a sixpack steam gauge C-172 in the package level I purchased. I have tried to download the "free" version of one, but I haven't been successful at getting it loaded into the hangar.

    FlightGear 2020.3 is "buggy". But, it's free and uses a lot of the same maps used in X-Plane 11.

    If X-Plane 12 can get to the level of realism for the scenery what MSFS 2020 does - while maintaining the excellent physics and modeling of the C-172, I will really consider upgrading!

    I consider the flight simulator as a useful tool for a Student PIlot. I don't use it as a "game". I will confess to flying and trying to locate our home and ranch, not identifiable with X-Pane 11, but very, very accurately presented in MSFS 2020.

    Peripherals:
    Saitek/Logitech Yoke, Throttle Quadrant, Rudder Pedals (really dislike the rudder pedals).
    Computer: i7 7100, 16GB RAM, 1 TB SSD, Zotac GForce (nVidea) GT 1030 w/2GB DDR5 VRAM. Monitor is a surplus 32" HDTV

  • By IMC in da place to be! from Lone Star State on Thursday, May 19, 2022
  • Pros: Excellent IFR trainer and instrument-skills maintainer!
  • Review: It's an inexpensive and powerful tool which helps maintain instrument proficiency from the convenience of a PC desktop. Graphics are smooth as melted butter on a fast, 64-bit, RAMed up system.

It is the best value

  • By Jeff Brandt from Albuquerque on Friday, December 03, 2021
  • Pros: It is better and less expensive
  • Review: I purchased it direct over a year ago and find it very good. I have had every MS version since 98 and it is better. The company is focused, and unlike MS on again off again and overpriced, it is my choice. It also runs on Linux so I am not captive to MS which I genuinely abhor after they erased MS Flight that I paid for and can’t retrieve. It to mention they wrote a “bug” that ended MIDI port support so the $200 rudder pedal set I had became worthless.

Great realistic and challenging multi-monitor sim!

  • By Tom (Mad Dog) H. from Starkville MS USA on Saturday, June 05, 2021
  • Pros: Easy setup if you understand the proper terminology, very smooth and accurate response to controls, many great details with all working knobs and switches on the basic aircraft I have been concentrating on.
  • Review: As a flight instructor and commercial pilot in single & multiengine airplanes with additional experience in gliders and helicopters, I have flown some very high dollar sims! I had never used x-plane but had used previous MS sims and anticipated great things from their latest version but was very disappointed trying to use it with multiple screens. I found X-plane 11 to have many fans on YouTube to help understand and simplify the proper setup to have a near-perfect panorama display. I have truly enjoyed flying this sim setup for single engine airplane and glider operations, and am working to put together a cockpit setup suitable for teaching my grandchildren to fly! One granddaughter remarked it was so realistic she wanted a seatbelt and harness! I am using a high end gaming computer driving three identical HD monitors with a great and very realistic 135 degree field of view for now.
