Peter's Aircraft presents a collection of aircraft models for the X-Plane® flight simulator. Most are payware, some are freeware. He focuses on Airbus, Lockheed military transports, and the Aero Commander family.

Trying to find yourself some awesome new products to use? Then Peter is definitely one of the best places to start with! The range of products on offer here is quite immense and it will give you all the selection help that you need in finding something that really does match the style and the format that you were expecting to see in the first place. The detail and depth of each model is massively impressive and the range of extra features added in to each jet is usually hugely impressive, with authentic details always captured expertly.

The plan with Peters Aircraft is to find yourself some excellent aircraft but you’ll find lots of misc. items as well. Additional aircraft mods with new engines, minor model changes and effects are released all the time as the site keeps itself up to date regularly. These new in-depth models are always more or less spot on, too, giving you a huge range of detail and information about the aircraft and how it would have been running if you were to be trying to fly it in the real world – this starts with things like aircraft sourcing and then many hours of detailing to ensure that every last feature included is as close to the real thing as it possibly can be.

In return, you get a fantastic looking product that really does all that it can to match up with the real aircraft it represents. Whether it’s an Airbus A320 or something based for military usage you will find that each package comes with incredibly detail and range added in. Each model looks great but they fly excellently, too, making it nice and easy for you to get to grips with them. Not sure where to start? Then you can easily start with the handbook to understand what is going on effectively.

If you want to make sure that things can be managed and cared for effectively, then you should definitely take a look at what Peter has to offer. The range of aircraft is great and there is always something new in the fire; simply check out the Coming Next file to see what else people might be offering you in the near future. It’s a very interesting place to be and will give you plenty of help in working out where you want to go with your aviation selections.

The website is loaded with brilliant new features and it will be updated regularly, so be sure to check back when you can. The website is well-received and has plenty of things for you to pick from so make sure that you look around and have a view at else might be on offer that suits you in terms of your overall ability.

Peters Aircraft is well worth checking out for detail, precision and class; it’s got just about everything that you could ask for waiting for you and each aircraft has been carefully recreated to really capture the heart of the original. 

These models are built after authentic documents (FCOM) and partially by using flight recorder data. The panels are realistic, as is the flight model. If you are a flyer of the X-Plane simulator and are looking to add to your hanger, head over to Peter's Hanger and check out what he has to offer.
