X-Plane Downloads and Add-ons
X-Plane has always been the professional choice for a flight simulation package. However, over the past few years - X-Plane has become more popular with the "general" flight simulator user, the user that flies at home on his PC or Mac. The last few versions of X-Plane have been marketed toward general users and it is becoming increasingly popular within the flight simulation community.
With the increase in popularity, freeware developers have started creating add-ons such as aircraft and scenery packages for X-Plane. X-Plane is said to be more realistic in terms of flight dynamics than any of the Microsoft Flight Simulator packages, mainly because of the way X-Plane gives flight to aircraft models.
In Microsoft Flight Simulator, aircraft models are all similar with a simple configuration file to provide simple flight dynamics, while in X-Plane, aircraft shapes, sizes, and weights are taken into consideration in the simulation - giving more realistic flight.
While there are not as many add-on packages and downloads for X-Plane as there are for the Microsoft Flight simulators, this is a growing section and it's becoming increasingly popular.
Featured in this section are many aircraft, vehicles, helicopters, and scenery expansions for X-Plane, all available for download with your Fly Away Simulation account. Why not try X-Plane today? You can get your hands on the free demo here.
Perhaps you're already an avid X-Plane user, if so - you're sure to find a home here. You can visit our X-Plane discussion forum for discussion topics, and you don't even have to become a member to post. You will be pleased to know that we have recently reviewed the latest X-Plane 11 for our readers. You can read the review here.
You will also be keen to know that most (if not all) of the X-Plane 11 add-ons are also compatible with X-Plane version 12. So if you find anything that specifies XP11, it should work in your new copy of XP12 too.
