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 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: 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.

FSXWX Flight Simulator Weather Engine Review

Posted on Mon, 22 May 2017 10:20:22 GMT (564 reads)

For years, one of the most common complaints that people have had about Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D has been the lack of weather quality. While only a part of the overall feature and the atmosphere of flying an aircraft, it’s something that completes the look. Indeed, the quality and detail of the weather should matter a great deal more than it has in the past. Well, with the help of the latest release of FSXWX, users of both simulators can enjoy a far more realistic and progressive weather effect when flying in a simulator.

Posted on Sun, 21 May 2017 09:39:57 GMT (1336 reads)

Well, it’s been nearly a week now since Dovetail Games Flight Sim World hit Early Access.

While there’s always critical comments – and some criticisms are very much worth keeping an eye on – the overall view is a positive one. What to remember as well is that, at this stage, it is still in early development. Problems that exist just now will be removed, and features will be improved or taken out if they aren’t up to the standard needed.
