X-Plane 11

X-Plane 11

Is this the future of flight simulation?

The latest iteration of X-Plane is arguably the most anticipated version to date, sporting new technologies, updated aircraft and a new user interface. First made available as a public beta in November of last year, the final version was released five months later.

Getting started

As with previous incarnations, X-Plane 11 is available on DVD as an eight-disc boxset or as a digital download. An update application can be downloaded from the X-Plane website, which can be used to check for updates, repair X-Plane or install scenery. It features a graphical user interface (GUI) with a map of the world so you can select which scenery areas to download. In total, the core X-Plane program takes up approximately 9GB while the scenery for the entire planet has a footprint of just over 50GB.
