“I'm 3DFlyer and I bought LOMAC on a whim one day. Just went to Walmart (a US Department Store that has "everything"). When I got home and got it loaded, I was amazed!

10 of the Best Aviation Movies and Why

Two of the man’s most wonderful inventions, movies and aviation, came of age around the same time. After the turn of the 19th century, and before World War I, a new age was dawning. The Industrial Revolution gave way to the Technological Revolution. New and exciting inventions, and new ways to manufacture them, were springing up everywhere.  ...

Review of FlightGear: The Free & Fun Flight Simulator!

Let’s be honest. Flight simulation can be an expensive hobby. Once you acquired a quality program, it's not long before you purchased several others. Not to mention the tens, maybe hundreds of aircraft that are beginning to fill up your hard drive. Over time, all those acquisitions add up to a serious investment. ...

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.net 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.

Order FSXFSX

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.
