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.


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.

Editors Keys FSX Keyboard Review Editors Keys FSX Keyboard Review

Flight Sim enthusiasts are no strangers to downloading add-ons or purchasing peripherals in an effort to enhance their flight experiences. One more scenery pack, one more aircraft, it all makes a difference to us. It’s for that reason that this product caught me by surprise; a keyboard specifically designed with users of Microsoft’s Flight Simulator X (FSX) in mind. Of all the things on my desk, my keyboard is one thing that I never thought I could justify upgrading because it always did what it was supposed to do. Widescreen monitors, surround sound speakers, ergonomic computer mice – have all found a way to boot out my old hardware, yet my keyboard stuck fast. Until now, that is.

For many flight simulation fans, there is a tendency to spend a lot of time looking at the way a flight simulator works and how it operates behind the scenes. Normally, you will find that the interface provided by a simulator is quite clunky and will normally actually be a mild hindrance at first whilst you get used to the simulator. One simulator that suffers from this quite badly, for example, is X-Plane. It’s a wildly popular simulator but it’s not without its functionality and design issues; the interface, for example, is one of the worst!

A2A Piper PA-24 Comanche 250 Review A2A Piper PA-24 Comanche 250 Review

Posted on Mon, 21 Sep 2015 12:54:58 GMT (2311 reads)

A2A Simulations have been around for some time, creating engaging and exciting aircraft modifications that manage to really capture the little things that make simulation such a fun thing to be a part of. Having been built between 1957 and 1972 regularly, this aircraft carries a lot of history and a lot of nostalgia for older pilots, but also remains an interesting choice for those of a newer generation who want to try out a real classic of the skies. The low wings and the monocoque construction ensures that the aircraft flies quite different to smaller aircraft you may be more used to.

JSTARS Called To Improve Scheduling Speed as the E-8D Marches On JSTARS Called To Improve Scheduling Speed as the E-8D Marches On

Posted on Mon, 07 Sep 2015 15:36:11 GMT (1815 reads)

Shots were fired recently as Northrop Grumman says that it should not be taking sixteen years for the US Air Force to re-capitalize the Boeing 707 E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System. In the same interview, they released a barrage at the USAF as they also stated it should not take an eleven month “risk reduction” period to get the party started. The storm comes from the recent selection by the USAF for Northrop, Boeing and Lockheed Martin to all have access to the next-generation contracts for JSTARS designs.

Being able to visit various unique parts of the world is, without a doubt, one of the most positive parts of using a flight simulator. It makes travel in general much easier, and also allows you to see parts of the planet that you have never visited before in the past. To avoid this problem and make sure that you can easily find the locations that you want to visit in the world, you will need to rely upon scenery updates and add-ons to get it right.

You have no doubt heard of stories of this in the past; the space cruiser that could take a group of people from anywhere in Europe to Australia in an hour and a half. This was concept laughed down and “dreamed up” by German Aerospace experts in the past decade, but it looks like we might finally have something that would provide the cynic and the doubters wrong. Indeed, in the last few days the German Aerospace Center’s SpaceLiner could be entering a deeply exciting design phase, further than it has ever been able to reach in the past.

For fans of more rural parts of the world, it can be a bit dispiriting to use a flight simulator at times. You will usually find that you are taking on parts of the world that look dull and uninspiring, with a large range of the same things appearing over and over – variety is the spice of life in a simulator, and unfortunately it is found sorely lacking in some departments. However, modifications such as this recreation of the Rouen Vallée de Seine or Rouen Airport allows you to fly a more rural part of France and enjoy the sites and the views a little bit more than you may be used to doing.
