X-Plane Airliner

By Laminar Research

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


This is X-Plane-Airliner, a new version of X-Plane for the iPhone that simulates Airliners and the relatively long-range, instrument-capable flying that they do.

X-Plane-Airliner comes with:

The Boeing 777: The gold standard for modern airliner design and efficiency.
The Boeing 747: The big double-decker 4-engine classic Liner of the sky.
The Airbus A-380: The largest airplane in the world, with fly-by-wire controls.
The Boeing 787: The new carbon-fiber, high-bypass, ultra-efficient harbinger of the next wave of airline travel.
The MD-80: A well-known twin-engine pusher workhouse referred to by pilots as the 'Mad Dog'
The TriStar: A nice-flying older 3-engine bird that, while reliable, was retired for being a bit expensive to operate.

As well, X-Plane Airliner gives you control of throttle, flaps, speedbrakes, and trim, giving you much more control over these incredible machines than you can get in the regular X-Plane for iPhone.

In addition to the additional flight controls, the cockpit is a full glass EFIS system, with airspeed, heading, altitude, vertical speed, Mach number, DME, and HSI with localizer and glideslope displayed in the same manner as the real airliners. As well, a moving map glass display gives you complete situational awareness as you fly, as you find in the real airliners.

The regular X-Plane for iphone has 3 airports and 4 NAVAIDs, and a flight region of about 60 by 60 miles. With X-Plane-Airliner, you get 42 NAVAIDs, 98 airports, and about 60 by 180 miles to fly in in the default scenery area! That default flight region in X-Plane Airliner spans from San Diego clear up to Edwards Air Force Base! This large flying area, combined with the 98 airports and 42 NAVAIDs, lets you practice relatively longer flights in any weather, with glass-cockpit 'EFIS' instrumentation and moving maps in the cockpit to make it all easy as you fly the Big Birds across the scenic terrain of Southern California, enjoying the view if you like to do that, or in hardball IFR conditions, using the glass instrumentation to fly the airliners down to minimums in clouds and fog and turbulence at night... or anything in between. As well, a handful of other flying areas are available to try your skills in various different parts of the world!

This is by far the most powerful app we have released for the iPhone, and we are making it available cheap for now so that everyone can get it!

We have added the 737 back here, as people have requested!

Xplane lover

Who hates x plane airliner who ever does is dumb good thing you don't have to pay for the planes infinite flight doesn't even have 3d buildings and you also have to pay for airplanes on infinite flight x-plane 9 has 2d buildings and has a bunch more planes to fly it even has helicopters and you don't even have to pay for the planes I'd rather choose xplane 9 I have infinite flight xplane airliner get xplane much better than infinite flight on my iPod touch infinite flight always freezes and kicks me out of the game don't get infinite flight I want my money back

Cool game needs improvement though

I like this game. I just have some reccomendations. You should be able to fly to Europe across the ocean. Also I would like it if after you complete a flight you get a skill rating like in x plane carrier. Also there should be flying mission from one airport to another like in x-plane appollo and x-plane shuttle. I think that this is a cool game but it needs improvement. It would be really cool to fly across the ocean though. Also add new airlines like klm and continental. Also add cockpit view. Also add taxiing, gates, and better airports period(.)


The app is the best but I'm thinking if you can make an update to it because its too small in my iphone5 screen.

I'm wondering if you can add extra liveries to the planes and update look of the area because it looks poor and the planes too. I was wondering if you could put a Qatarairways liver which I love and is the best five star airliner in the world out of five.

I was wondering if you can add 3D buildings like xplane 9 as I've seen on my iPad .

If you can make it like infinite flight it would be much better.
