New to flight simulation?

Welcome to Fly Away Simulation. We cover many aspects of flight simulation on this website including the popular series released by Microsoft: Microsoft Flight, Flight Simulator X, FS2004 and of course X-Plane by Laminar Research.

Getting Started

Before you are able to become a virtual aviator, you need a package for your PC or Mac. We feature some great free flight simulation packages that users may download including X-Plane, FlightGear and Orbiter. However, for a true simulation experience with maximum features and expansion options, we currently recommend Microsoft Flight Simulator X or X-Plane from Laminar Research; both can be purchased from our store, SimShack with worldwide delivery.

Before you can enjoy virtual aviation, you will need to get yourself a flight sim package.  There are many out there, but currently the best and most expandable are Microsoft Flight Simulator X or X-Plane.


Microsoft's flight simulation packages have always been the most popular, and not by chance.  They feature complete world scenery and many stunning aircraft out of the box.  Microsoft FSX is the latest of their simulation series that offers "full world" simulation with a complete experience.  This differs from the newer 2012 "Microsoft Flight" game, as this is not a complete package out of the box; it's more of a quick, fun game with no third party add-on support - so for those who want the full experience, we recommend FSX.

Order X-PlaneX-Plane 10

X-Plane has always been the professional's choice, it features many advanced functions and ultimate realism.  Just released is X-Plane version 10, which is quite possibly the ultimate package there is available.  X-Plane runs on Windows and Mac so you don't have to worry about what operating system you run.  Out of the box, over 20 aircraft are included and highly detailed world scenery with thousands of airports and airfields.

When using a flight simulation product, you always want to get the most realistic possible response. After all, the majority of users will be using as either light training for their piloting career, or as a chance to get as close to the real thing as possible. Therefore, it’s vital to make sure that you have the right kind of realism around you at all times – of course, as any flight simulation fan will know, the realism that you experience goes far beyond just the aircraft that you are flying. The type of aircraft is always important, but the world itself has to feel realistic.

As you might imagine, when you first start using a flight simulator you will want to be able to fully understand everything that is has to offer you. It needs to look realistic, authentic and truly responsive to what you are asking for. As you may have noticed yourself, though, this is pretty hard to do. With the entire world effectively being covered by flight simulators today, it can be hard for the developers to find the manpower, resources and technology to make the entire world look as realistic as possible.

For many of us taking part in flying an aircraft in FSX can be hard work. With so much to consider as you go through the day, it can be hard work just trying to put everything into place whilst ensuring that you are going to get some kind of long-term benefit. This can start to affect your ability to fly with confidence, making it harder to get through the most difficult parts of the flight process. This is why so many people tend to turn to some of the extra features that are provided in FSX these days – things such as Air Traffic Control can be the extra tool needed to make sure that you can get a bit more success when flying through your aircraft.

For many years, the ways in which people take to the skies through a flight simulator has been changing. From the early '90s simulations that we witnessed that were short on features and realism to the super realistic service we have today in 2015, using flight simulators has been something that many people have enjoyed for quite some time. However, like every other aspect of flight simulation, the features that are on offer and display have changed entirely and require you to have a strong understanding and knowledge of what to do and when.

Although FSX has always been well regarded as one of the most impressive flight simulators to date, there have always been a few kinks that have made things a bit tougher for modders and users of the simulator that want to change things up. For example, FSX tweaks that involve fsx.cfg edits are quite commonplace throughout various modding communities but they can be typically quite a difficult thing to install properly, whilst getting them to work.
