The current version of X-Plane 12 is an early access version and is susceptible to weekly updates now through October. Purchasing today provides ownership of the latest program with free updates into the final version.

X-Plane has been aviation’s most realistic flight simulator for the past decade, with incredibly life-like scenery, detailed cockpits, and realistic aerodynamic modeling. The latest version is a major upgrade, with an update to aerodynamic physics in the digital world as well as a complete overhaul to the weather engine.

The latest version of aviation’s most realistic sim

X-Plane has been aviation’s most realistic flight simulator for the past decade, with incredibly life-like scenery, detailed cockpits, and realistic aerodynamic modeling. It's our preferred option for pilots who need an at-home training tool. The latest version is a major upgrade, with an update to the aerodynamic profiles in the digital world as well as a complete overhaul of the weather engine. It’s faster than ever to get started, but there are still dozens of options for power users to customize every mission. Choose the airplane, location, and weather to make every flight exactly what you want. 

Features:

  • Stunning worldwide scenery, including detailed airport environments
  • Built-in tutorials help you learn the basics of flight and navigation
  • Simulate equipment failures and changing weather conditions
  • Free internet updates for all versions of 12.xx, including airport improvements
  • Works on Windows or Mac

New in X-Plane 12

World

  • Photometric Lighting Engine – Light brightness, intensity, spread, and more – all computed in real-time with the laws of physics
  • 3D Water – Gorgeous global water rendering, complete with wave height controls and floatplane interaction based on feedback from expert pilots.
  • Seasonal Effects – Tree color and leaf coverage vary to show season – snow accumulates, too!
  • Tropical watercolors – Gorgeous, geographically-aware watercolors.
  • 3D forests and vegetation – Large variety of 3D trees with variations of species, size, and seasonal effects. They even sway in the wind.
  • Ambient Sounds – The entire world now comes to life with FMOD sound – birds in the forest, cars in the cities, and of course, ground service vehicles.

Airports

  • Tower Kit – Custom suite of endless control tower variation, easy to use for maximal realism.
  • Animated Jetways – Jetways move to meet your aircraft when parked at the gate.
  • Localized ATC Procedures/Voices – Air Traffic Control follow regional procedures and accents around the world.
  • Pavement Effects – Airport artists can choose from a library of pavement effects to perfectly capture the look and feel of airports by setting the level of cracking, oil spills, pavement material, and more.

Weather

  • Volumetric 3D Clouds – Immersive clouds to fully capture the sensation of flight.
  • Real Weather – Proprietary algorithms to turn data from the real world into X-Plane weather.
  • Wake Turbulence – Powerful streams of upset air left in the atmosphere by other aircraft – just like real life.
  • Microbursts – Small, powerful downdrafts – perfectly modeled with pilot training in mind.
  • Thermals – Terrain-generated updrafts that allow gliders to gain altitude without a tow plane.
  • Snow, Rain, and Ice Accumulation – Precipitation now accumulates on surfaces, freezing or thawing based on temperature.
