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.

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.

As massive fans of the popular brand of aircraft produced by A2A Simulations, it’s no surprise that we were more than happy to try out their latest release – the PA-28 Cherokee 180.

As any good simulation fan will know, the market is expanding all the time. Whilst Microsoft Flight Simulator is probably the most well-known of all the kinds out there, the simulation genre has spanned countless different industries and styles.

Out of all the video game genres out there, the flight simulation niche seems to be one of the least popular for variety. In the modern times, we’ve have the various flight simulators released by Microsoft and a few similar approaches, but outside of that there’s not been too many epics out there on to take to the skies in. The problem seems to be a lack of realism, or a lack of features.

Whilst for many users the attraction of using a flight simulator tends to be the usage of aircraft such as fighter jets and large cruiser planes, for lots of people the most enjoyable aspect is taking to the skies in a helicopter. It gives you an entirely different flight experience to what you might be used to, especially if you have any real-life flight experience in a plane! However, the problem is that the level of helicopters offered within flight simulators at the moment can be a little bit limited.

One of the most important aspects of using a flight simulator is, of course, that it actually works properly. This can be a source of great frustration for many users as early releases of flight simulators have been filled with errors and bugs that have hampered either the ability to play the simulation out effectively, or even use the simulator in the first place.
