X-Plane for Mac, Windows, and Linux (www.X-Plane.com) is the most flexible and realistic flight simulator on the market for desktop personal computers. Using blade element theory for the most powerful and accurate flight model available for personal computers, and earning FAA certification for logging of flight time for pilots, X-Plane is the Gold Standard for accurate flight simulation, offering realism that is unmatched by any other simulator.
And now, thanks to the power of the iPhone and iPodTouch, X-Plane is available for these stunning little platforms. As in the full desktop version, X-Plane for iPhone lets you experiment with different times of day, weather, sky conditions, wind, turbulence and airplanes, all while flying the craft from various different views, starting in the stunning terrain topography of Innsbruck, Austria, home to some of the most challenging mountains and topography for aviation.
With physics FAR more realistic than you will find in any other 'flying game', this flight SIMULATION lets you enjoy a good handful of amazing airplanes and flying regions. Fly the amazing new Cirrus Jet concept, a single-engine jet that lets any pilot scoot across the sky at Mach 0.5 in his own personal jet transport, the amazingly sleek and sexy Italian Piaggo Avanti, the amazingly sleek and efficient Columbia-400 (owned and flown by the author of this program) or just the good old Cessna-172.
You are given some amazing areas to fly, from the stunning mountains of Innsbruck, Austria, to the airport-rich area of Southern California. Or try your luck over water between islands around Hawaii.
Fly in perfect clear weather, or bring in some turbulence to crank up the challenge-level. Then make it night. Then add some low clouds. Then lower the visibility. Then switch to the instrument panel view and try landing by reference to the instruments... realistic flight instruments are included to let you do everything right up to a FULL ILS TO MINIMUMS! The power of this app far surpasses most anything else out there... can you handle it?
We here at Laminar Research are still a bit shell-shocked at how powerful this little device is, and how much power in flight simulation can be stuffed into it... the power of X-Plane can now be had with you... anywhere.
What's New in Version 9.75
A number of people have been asking for the Piper Cub, so here it is! This is a tail-dragger, so requires extreme care during take-off and landing to avoid ground looping! (spinning around on the ground!)
It needs a cockpit where u can actually see out the window, not just a view of the gauges. Please get rid of Piper Cub and add Piper Cherokee 180. Also the controls are a little too sensitive and in San Francisco CA make it so it's not so cloudy. Yeah and I'd really like to be able to see the runway while I'm trying to land in cockpit view and make the app cost maybe 4 or 3 dollars for those that DON'T WANT TO WASTE MONEY! I love this app I play it all the time but maybe it would be 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟if u did what I asked u to do.
This is a FABULOUS simulator for the money. In addition to being very realistic, it's a great challenge. Allows you to choose plane, location, weather conditions, time of day, and more. You can even select various aspects of mishaps such as engine failure and bird strikes to increase the challenge. Looking forward to future updates such as newer, more detailed maps and more planes. A+!!!!
Good app, but not cross platform
I bought this app for my phone but if I want it to look right on my iPad I have to double the cost and buy it again. My recommendation is don't buy it until the developer makes the same app work on both devices. Then, I would buy several of them!
As an iOS developer I can tell you it would be trivial to support this. The developer is just trying to get a little more money out of those of us with two devices. It's fine if that's your strategy but I will be keeping my money to myself until I see the little cross platform plus icon on the buy button.
