X-Plane 10 flight simulator is the world's most comprehensive and powerful flight simulator for personal computers, and it offers the most realistic flight model available. This has to be seen to be believed! X-Plane 10 is not a game, but an engineering tool that can be used to predict the flying qualities of fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft with incredible accuracy.
X-Plane 10 North America Region lets you fly in North America without having to purchase "the whole world." X-Plane 10 Regional includes scenery for specific regions. X-Plane 10 Regional has all program features of X-Plane Global.
Because X-Plane 10 predicts the performance and handling of almost any aircraft, it is a great tool for pilots to keep up their currency in a simulator that flies like the real plane, for engineers to predict how a new airplane will fly, and for aviation enthusiasts to explore the world of aircraft flight dynamics.
Welcome to the world of props, jets, single- and multi-engine airplanes, as well as gliders, helicopters and VTOLs. X-Plane contains subsonic and supersonic flight dynamics, allowing users to predict the flight characteristics of the slowest aircraft or the fastest. X-Plane also includes more than 30 aircraft in the default installation, spanning the aviation industry and its history. Aircraft included range from the Bell 206 JetRanger and Cessna 172 to the Space Shuttle and the B-2 Bomber. Additionally, more than 1,400 additional aircraft models can be downloaded from the Internet many of which are completely free. If those aren't enough, users can design their own airplanes and test-fly them!
The full X-Plane scenery package covers North America in stunning resolution. Users can land at many airports or test their mettle on aircraft carriers, oil rigs, frigates (which pitch and roll with the waves), or helipads atop buildings. They can also realistically model the flight of remote-controlled model aircraft, perform an air-launch in an X-15 or Space Ship One from the mother ship, fly re-entries into Earth's atmosphere in the Space Shuttle, fly with friends over the Internet or a LAN, drop water on forest fires, or shoot approaches to aircraft carriers at night in stormy weather and rough water conditions in a damaged F-4. The situations that can be simulated are unbelievably diverse!
What's new in version 10? The most important new additions in X-Plane 10 are:
- Many high-quality aircraft models with detailed 3D cockpits
- A brand new system for auto-generating plausible scenery for the entire world
- A new, highly-detailed cloud and weather rendering system
- A flight model with improved accuracy and even greater power
- A completely redone ATC and AI aircraft system
- The ability to more fully utilize multi-core CPUs for enhanced realism
The full X-Plane 10 Global version is also now available at a a new reduced price.
