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.

Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020) Review By a Flight Sim Professional

Posted on Thu, 22 Oct 2020 19:19:36 GMT

OK, we waited over half of 2020 for it, and then finally on August 18th Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 was unleashed to the general public, allowing us to finally experience those previous samples and teasers in full.

Prepar3D v5 Review

Posted on Thu, 23 Jul 2020 21:17:26 GMT

You could perhaps be forgiven for missing the release of Prepar3D v5 given it was released right in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic and with around a week’s notice to the general public. On the other hand, those who did grab the latest release from the Lockheed Martin team have perhaps used a portion of the lockdown to hone their flight simulation skills all the more.

Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator Review

Posted on Thu, 24 Oct 2019 21:35:18 GMT

Given the early access releases of Aerofly FS 2, it might be tempting to dismiss the program and move on to other more established flight sim programs. However, the fact is, once you do give it a try you will very likely find yourself begrudgingly liking what is unfolding before you. And while there are still ways to go in terms of high-resolution add-ons and scenery (which will surely come with time) the initial feeling is one of positivity, even if there is a longing for more quantity of such scenery and airports.

Best Free X-Plane 11 Photoreal Scenery Add-ons for 2020

Posted on Mon, 09 Sep 2019 13:23:20 GMT

X-Plane 11 is one of the most popular virtual flight programs. And, most often than not, offers some of the most authentic virtual flight experiences on the market.  Part of that experience is the scenery, and how real or authentic it looks. With this in mind, we will examine some of the best freeware photorealistic scenery add-ons currently available.

Microsoft Flight: The Ultimate Guide

Posted on Thu, 18 Jul 2019 10:53:27 GMT

Microsoft Flight was a flight simulator package released in 2012 and developed by Microsoft as an attempt at a new PC based simulation package to continue their Flight Simulator series.  It wasn't based on old FSX code; it was a completely new engine built for modern 64-bit machines.

Flight Sim World or FSW as it became know as was the latest flight simulator package released by Dovetail Games.  Flight Sim World's core was based on existing FSX code but it had been brought up to date with heavy modification and rewriting (and of course many new features and functions).

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 vs P3D: 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.
