Special Product Notes

X-Plane 12 is still a pre-release "Early Access" program. Your purchase of X-Plane 12 today entitles you to both X-Plane 11, X-Plane 12, and free upgrades for all version of 12.xx.

X-Plane 12 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 12?
The most important additions to X-Plane 12 are:

  • Photometric, HDR Lighting Engine: Light brightness, intensity, spread, and more – all computed in real time with the laws of physics.
  • Volumetric 3D Clouds: Immersive clouds to fully capture the sensation of flight.
  • Seven New Beautifully-Modeled Aircraft
  • 3D Water: Complete with Accurate Seaplane Physics - Gorgeous global water rendering, complete with wave height controls and floatplane interaction based on feedback from expert pilots.
  • Tropical Water Colors: Gorgeous, geographically-aware water colors.
  • Modern AI-Based ATC
  • Enhanced Flight Physics Model
  • Seasonal/Weather-Specific Visual Effects – Snow, Variable Vegetation, Ice and Rain. Tree color and leaf coverage vary to show season – snow accumulates, too!
  • 3D Forests and Vegetation:  Large variety of 3D trees with variation of species, size, and seasonal effects. They even sway in the wind.
  • Ambient Sounds: The entire world now comes to life with FMOD sound – birds in the forest, cars in the cities and of course, ground service vehicles.
  • Tower Kit: Custom suite of endless control tower variation, easy to use for maximal realism.
  • Animated Jetways: Jetways move to meet your aircraft when parked at the gate.
  • Localized ATC Procedures/Voices: Air Traffic Control follow regional procedures and accents around the world.
  • Pavement Effects: Airport artists can choose from a library of pavement effects to perfectly capture the look-and-feel of airports by setting level of cracking, oil spills, pavement material, and more.
  • Real Weather: Proprietary algorithms to turn data from the real world into X-Plane weather.
  • Wake Turbulence: Powerful streams of upset air left in the atmosphere by other aircraft – just like real life.
  • Microbursts: Small, powerful downdrafts – perfectly modeled with pilot training in mind.
  • Thermals: Terrain-generated updrafts that allow gilders to gain altitude without a tow plane.
  • Snow, Rain and Ice Accumulation: Precipitation now accumulates on surfaces, freezing or thawing based on temperature.

Aircraft: X-Plane now includes 22 different aircraft with 3D cockpits including:

  • Cirrus SR22
  • Cessna Skyhawk 172SP
  • Cessna Skyhawk 172SP (G1000 glass cockpit)
  • Cessna Skyhawk 172 on floats
  • Van's RV-10 Experimental
  • Lancair Evolution
  • Piper PA-18 Super Cub
  • Stinson L-5 Sentinel
  • Beechcraft King Air C90
  • Beechcraft Baron 58
  • Robinson R22 Beta II Helicopter
  • Robinson R22 Beta II Helicopter on Floats
  • Sikorsky S-76 Helicopter
  • Cessna Citation X
  • Cirrus Vision SF50 Jet
  • Boeing 737-800
  • Airbus A330-300
  • McDonnell Douglas MD-80
  • Grumman F-14 Tomcat
  • Aero-Works Aerolite 103 Ultralight
  • Schleicher ASK 21 Glider

Airports:  X-Plane includes detailed 3-D scenery for more than 17,000 airports around the world – all with new ground textures, towers and pavement effects to enhance realism.

What's Included:

  • Universal platform support (Windows, Mac with Native ARM Support and Linux)
  • Global scenery
  • 19 high-quality aircraft with immersive 3-D cockpits
  • Access to X-Plane 12 and 11
  • Free internet updates for all versions of 12.xx

X-Plane 12 System Requirements: X-Plane 12 requires a high end machine.

The minimum requirements are:

  • Disk Space: 25GB
    CPU: Intel Core i3, i5, i7, or i9 CPU with 4 or more cores, or AMD Ryzen 3, 5, 7 or 9. (Those with other CPUs should try the demo before purchasing.)
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Video Card: a Vulkan 1.3-capable video card from NVIDIA or AMD with at least 2 GB VRAM
  • Note: Intel GPUs are not supported by X-Plane 12.

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 8600k or Ryzen 5 3500 or better, or Apple Silicon
  • Memory: 16-24 GB RAM or more
  • Video Card: a DirectX 12-capable video card from NVIDIA or AMD with at least 4-8 GB VRAM (GeForce GTX 2070 or better, or similar from AMD)
  • Joystick or Yoke and Rudders

Supported Video Cards:

  • NVIDIA: Nvidia 900 series Desktop GPU or newer, or GeForce 965M, 970M, 980M and 980MX or newer (Second generation Maxwell or newer); driver version 510 or newer
  • AMD: AMD Radeon RX 500 or newer, driver version Adrenaline 22.2.1or newer
  • Apple Silicon
  • Note: Intel GPUs are not supported by X-Plane 12.

Support Operating Systems:

  • macOS: macOS 10.15 or newer (e.g. Catalina, Big Sur, or Monterey)
  • Windows: Windows 10 or 11, 64-bit
  • Linux: Varies. While X-Plane 12 will run on Linux, support is not provided 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 20.04 LTS new newer successfully.

IMPORTANT DELIVERY INFORMATION:   You can choose either a phyiscal DVD set that is shipped or a digital download edition of X-Plane 12.
If you select the download you will not be shipped any disks. Instead, you will be given a link to download X-Plane 12 as well as a product key to activate the download.  The download is more than 20 GB so you will need a high speed internet connection to download.  If you prefer to get the DVD version of X-Plane 12 everything will be available on the DVDs but you will NOT have the option for immediate download.

NOTE:  The DVD version will not begin shipping until X-Plane 12 has been officially released.

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.
