The most realistic aircraft. The world at your fingertips. It’s not a game, it’s a flight simulator.

▶ "Highly recommended." — Mel Martin, Engadget ◀
▶ Featured by Apple in "Best New Games" ◀
▶ Over 1 million downloads! ◀

Come experience why real pilots fly X-Plane.

It starts with the flight model—the same flight model used in our FAA-certified desktop simulator—that’s complete enough to model the flex in your wings & the tilt in your landing gear.

Add to that our desktop-quality aircraft with multiple liveries and interactive 3-D cockpits—so detailed you can do a full startup procedure using the hundreds of buttons, knobs, & switches in the cockpit. With working gauges, flight displays, & more, these cockpits are as realistic as those in our full desktop sim.

But aircraft are no good without a place to fly them. That's why each of our 5 ▸free◂ regions features detailed terrain, lifelike city buildings, & 3D airports—complete with terminal buildings, jetways, hangars, & more.

Want more? Subscribe to unlock global scenery, and get access to over 37,000 airports, with more than 11,500 airports featuring 3D terminals, hangars, & more.


√ 9 ▸free◂ tutorials, teaching the basics of takeoffs & landings, traffic patterns, helicopters, & more
√ Massive multiplayer with thousands of other pilots and controllers in a single shared world (Professional subscribers only; non-subscribers can get free trial flights for a limited time)
√ Fully interactive cockpits on many aircraft, wired to real systems models, with working gauges, displays, buttons, & switches
√ Full startup procedures supported on many aircraft (optionally start any aircraft from cold & dark)
√ More than 50 systems modeled, each of which can be failed on command
√ Emergency scenarios

Very good. But their are many problems

I have had this game for a month now. I find it fantastic and very fun and accurate. But now their are more problems then positives. I realised upon downloading that u have to pay for most of the features (multiplayer, planes). This really made me quite sad. Why advertise a free game if most features are payed for. The two planes that u do get free are decent and quite easy to control. Another problem is the features of the planes. I get it’s trying to be very accurate and the cockpits are extremely accurate. But for people who want to be realistic. Start the plane up. Autopilot and all that. There’s no information or tutorials for this. Yes. Hold the screen to see what u can press. But we don’t know what every button does. I turned off a battery and generator by accident because it was near the map (thinking it could have been the gen/battery for autopilot) and this caused me to lose control and crash. It’s a great game especially for those who don’t have the pc versions. But it’s extremely difficult to those new people who like aviation. More tutorials. More tips. And maybe another free plane. I understand the multiplayer is in early access. Which might explain why it is paid for. When it’s done and completed. Plz consider making this free. Or at least an lesser version with a smaller number of people. Thanks if u read this. Cole

Excellent game, one small suggestion.

I’m hooked. The physics in this game are incredibly true to life, the detail is wonderful and I love being able to interact with controls in the cockpit as well as use the basic on screen controls provided. Even on my ageing iPhone SE it runs a treat, the realism is highly addictive and the two free planes and section of the map you get to start out with have kept me entertained for hours. Also it’s wonderful to be able to play for free without interruption from adverts / pop ups. My only suggestion would be being able to purchase extra squares on the global map for a small fee in the same way you can do with the planes - without needing the monthly subscription. I understand subscriptions help to guarantee money for development and wages, and that this would work out more expensive for the player if they were to purchase every square, but being self employed my income is variable and I can’t ever guarantee I’ll make a monthly payment on a game when there are bills to pay. However when I have a good month, I (and I think many others) would be happy to purchase more sections of the map for a small fee to fly a little further over time and whenever out banks allow it.

All in all, an excellent game. Highly recommended to anyone considering downloading!

-: why do u wanna know.? :- ,

- helpful - HELPFUL

Loving the game, graphics and details… but in my mobile it’s difficult to turn ( tilt ) my phone ! Thats why its just one issue for now. I’d love if u update on adding more joysticks so it’s easier to control and also the buildings WHY are they flatter than the pancakes?! Can we please lift the buildings and add some fog or better water as I’m bored of just seeing paper cutouts of buildings as it’s seeming to me that Roblox is better than this!!
One more suggestion : atleast ONE free passenger flight plane I had enough of tiny planes and want to realistically fly passengers to locations and see people, also as potential disasters to come as I tried doing a water landing and I was sitting ontop of water like how is that possible
One more- just one more suggestion: the game is a pay to win type please- I know u want to have something but we need spice we need to have most things free as this is a child game we don’t want. Children stealing parents credit cards and buying boring planes like why! Let us atleast try the planes before we buy them or not even buy them! JUST FIX IT!!!! - ???
