X-Plane 10 Global Edition

X-Plane 10 is available to buy from PC Aviator Australia right now. This is the newest flight simulator on the market that is still currently being updated and offers virtual pilots the latest virtual flying experience on PC, Mac and Linux.

Wondering what's changed from Version 9 to Version 10? The biggest new features are:

  • 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, and
  • the ability to more fully utilize multi-core CPUs for enhanced realism.

Comes on 8 DVDs. 

What is X-Plane?

X-Plane is the world's most comprehensive and powerful flight simulator for personal computers. It offers the most realistic flight model available for home use.

Welcome to the world of props, jets, single- and multi-engine airplanes, as well as gliders, helicopters and VTOLs such as the V-22 Osprey and AV-8B Harrier.

X-Plane contains subsonic and supersonic flight dynamics, allowing users to predict the flight characteristics of the slowest aircraft to the fastest. X-Plane includes thirty-five aircraft on its master disk, spanning the aviation industry (and its history), sporting aircraft from the Bell 206 JetRanger and Cessna 172 to the supersonic SR-71 and the Space Shuttle. Additionally, more than 1,400 additional aircraft models (such as those at X-Plane.org) can be downloaded from the Internet , nearly all of which are free. If those aren't enough, users can design their own airplanes and test fly them!

X-Plane's flight model can even handle flying wings and fly-by-wire systems, as needed for a B-2 simulation.

The X-Plane scenery package covers the Earth in stunning resolution from 74 degrees north to 60 degrees south latitude. Scenery is also available for Mars thanks to the Mars Orbiting Laser Altimeter, which mapped that planet's elevation. On Earth, users can land at any of over 33,000 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, 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 incredible!

Weather is variable in X-Plane from clear skies and high visibility to thunderstorms with controllable wind, wind shear, turbulence, and micro bursts. Rain, snow, and clouds are available for an instrument flying challenge, and thermals are available for the gliders. Actual weather conditions can be downloaded from the Internet, allowing users to fly in the weather that currently exists at the location of the flight!

X-Plane also has detailed failure modeling, with multitudes of systems that can either be failed manually at an instructor's command, or randomly when users least expect it! Users can fail instruments, engines, flight controls, control cables, antennae, landing gear, or any of dozens of other systems at any moment.

While on its own X-Plane represents the world's most comprehensive flight simulator, the installation DVD also comes with Plane-Maker (allowing users to create custom aircraft or modify existing designs), Airfoil-Maker (allowing users to create airfoil performance profiles), and Weather-Briefer (to give users a weather briefing before the flight when using real weather conditions downloaded from the Internet).

X-Plane is extremely customizable, allowing users to easily create textures, sounds, and instrument panels for their own airplane designs or for the planes included with the sim.

X-Plane's accuracy (in flight model), scope (in aircraft and terrain coverage), versatility (in aircraft type and weather conditions), add-on programs (in aircraft and scenery editors), customizability, downloadable aircraft, and downloadable scenery make it the ultimate flight simulation experience for Macintosh, Windows, and Linux platforms.

    X-Plane is the only sim that currently has a 64-bit version available. FSX and P3D are still only 32-bit. Although there are not as many expansion packs available for Xplane as opposed to FSX, this sim has better aircraft flight modeling and has some very different but better (in some respects) scenery and scenery rendering. Clouds and thunderstorms are also a truly unique experience and is better than FSX in this regard in my opinion.
