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 (including Steam Edition), 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 simulator 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: Steam Edition or X-Plane (the latest is version 11) 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.  If you are reading this, it's likely you are already set up for simmin'!

FSX: Steam Edition logo.Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition

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.  

The most recent version is the Steam Edition re-released by Dovetail Games.  You can read our review of the Steam Edition here.  While it's slightly dated (and not up to date in terms of bug fixes and features), you can also download the original FSX demo from our file library here.

X-Plane 11 logo.X-Plane 11

X-Plane has always been the professional's choice, it features many advanced functions and ultimate realism.  Just released is X-Plane version 11, which is quite possibly the ultimate and most complete package available.  X-Plane runs on Windows, Mac and even Linux, 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.  You can read our review here and of course, download a demo from our file library here.

Building A Flight Sim Home Cockpit: 5 Examples You Can Learn From

Posted on Thu, 06 Jun 2019 18:21:44 GMT

When we consider the above statement, it is tempting to imagine that someone has literally sawn off the front of a plane and dropped it into someone’s spare room complete with a comfy (and interactive) chair. The thing is, while perhaps a lot less dramatic, should your ambition be such, that first description isn’t far wrong.

The Future of Flight Simulation (And a Brief History)

Posted on Thu, 09 May 2019 17:10:37 GMT

When we examine some of the most up to date programs, software, and add-ons available to the world of flight simulation, it is easy to believe, if only momentarily, that we have reached our zenith and that more realism and authenticity could only be achieved by participating in the “real thing” and taking to the actual skies as opposed to the virtual ones.

X-Plane 11 vs FSX: Which is Better & Why

Posted on Wed, 03 Apr 2019 18:16:40 GMT

Perhaps before we attempt to answer the above question, we should point out that whatever Flight Simulation program you opt for – and many simulation pilots have both – each are sound platforms from which to tour the virtual skies. And each has its pros and cons.

10+ Best Add-ons to Make FSX Look & Feel More Realistic

Posted on Thu, 28 Mar 2019 19:52:38 GMT

Realism, attention to detail, and absolute authenticity are at the heart of any top-notch flight simulation experience. Whether it is how authentic the planes themselves look, or the attention to detail on the many famous airports that are themselves household names around the world, it is arguable that the real journey of flight simulation begins once one begins to explore the abundance of extra choices available.

Best Free FSX & P3D Photoreal Scenery Add-ons for 2019

Posted on Mon, 24 Dec 2018 16:38:52 GMT

Part of what makes virtual flight joyful is the reality and authenticity of the scenery and surroundings. Whether it is the hustle and bustle of the busy metropolis-type cities below, or the wide-open plains of the countryside or mountain regions, after the flight and authenticity of the aircraft itself, it is important to make the “outside”, the scenery, equally authentic so as to achieve as realistic a flight as possible.

Best Payware P3Dv4 Aircraft & Scenery Add-ons for 2019

However, sometimes even the thriftiest of us have to accept that on occasion you “get what you pay for!” While the virtual world of aviation offers some amazingly high-quality freeware add-ons, some of the payware available simply serves to open up your virtual flying experience. Indeed, they bring some of the most famous, picturesque parts of the world right into your living room via your computer screen, as well as offering some of the most graceful aerial machines to ever take to the skies to visit them in.

Just Flight Vickers VC10 Jetliner for FSX/P3D Review

Posted on Wed, 13 Jun 2018 17:10:01 GMT

The VC10 is an important part of aviation history, playing an important role in the Royal Air Force for quite some time. First taking to the skies in 1962, it was built by Vickers-Armstrong until 1970. That 8-year span, though, produced a memorable aircraft that was still being used by the RAF some time in 2013.
