X-Plane Downloads and Add-ons

X-Plane has always been the professionals 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 towards 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 is 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.
