X-Plane

X-Plane has been with us in one form or another since 1995. This revolutionary flight sim has radically differentiated itself from the competition with the implementation of real-life physics including the aerodynamics principle of blade element theory. This means that X-Plane offers one of the most realistic and dynamic experience of all the simulators; delivering realistic elements like drag, lift and other external factors and conditions.

This, in turn, means that X-Plane is capable of replicating real aerodynamic properties on theoretical aircraft giving users the ability to design and create their own aircraft within the simulator. X-Plane includes Plane Maker and Airfoil Maker; software packages to help users design their own aircraft. As a result, X-Plane has a loyal fanbase and large community of users designing and sharing their creations.

X-Plane is popular with professionals and hobbyists alike, bringing together state-of-the-art graphics, real-world physics and a wide range of simulated aircraft and locations to fly them in. X-Plane is also available across a range of platforms including Windows, Mac and Google’s Android operating system. This has made it a firm favourite with those looking to hone their skills on the go, in the office or from the comfort of their own home.
