Build airplanes by snapping parts together, designing wing sections, and attaching engines. At any time, you can strap yourself into the cockpit and see how it flies with realistic physics. If you're not in the mood for building, over 50,000 airplanes are available to download for free.
You have the tools you'll need to bring any airplane to life. Snap parts together to build your airplane's body. Place engines to add thrust. Design and attach wings and then strap yourself into the cockpit and see how it flies.
Over 50,000 airplanes are available to download for free from SimplePlanes.com. Find anything from old WW2 bombers to next generation fighters to sci-fi spacecraft. You can upload your own airplanes and rise through the ranks from a bronze builder to a gold level builder.
DYNAMIC FLIGHT MODEL
Flight simulation at its finest. Every little change you make in the designer impacts how the airplane flies. Weight distribution, thrust, lift, and drag are all calculated continuously while flying. Parts can break off in spectacular fashion while flying due to over-stress or by hitting something. The fun won't stop there though. You can keep on flying even with a missing wing if you've got the skills.
Use all available parts to build airplanes with no restrictions. The sky is the limit. Literally.
Climb into the cockpit of one of your custom aircraft and see how it does in the challenges. Land on aircraft carriers, dodge surface-to-air missiles, race through courses, and so much more.
Tutorials will help players learn the basics of real airplane design and the considerations that need to be taken when airplanes are made.

Excellent airplane sandbox!
I've had SimplePlanes for ages it seems, and am thoroughly impressed with every new update the game offers! While being similar to games like Kerbal Space Program, it has plenty of terrain to fly over, lots of challenges, and literally anything can be created in this game with enough practice. You can make jets, helicopters, seaplanes, passenger aircraft, boats, cars, and even trains if you feel like it! With over 300 hours of playtime, and over a year since downloading this, I would definately say I've gotten my money's worth. The website adds tons of downloadable aircraft if you're not an expert plane builder. My only possible complaints might be with the low quality of the water, but it isn't much to complain about. To anyone on the fence about getting a game like this, I think it's sure to be well worth it for any aviation enthusiasts, and fans of plane engineering!
Great Game, sparked my interest in aviation
At first I got this game cause it looked fun with downloading all of these different planes, but when you actually start to make planes you can learn a lot about real physics that is used to keep planes flying. It lives up to its name, it is very simple and you won't learn a whole lot, but it is also super fun and great for beginners trying to learn about planes, as well as those who are experienced. Not to mention is this game is just all around fun because you can do a number of things, like joyride in a plane, dogfight, go on a hike in a vehicle, or explore the seas in a boat. There is so much to this game I am surprised it is only $6.
Great game but I have some suggestions
The game is great and I enjoy every aspect of it but it would be cool to either have smart bombs, a large scale dumb bomb (MOAB or Hiroshima nuke sized) to add to the arsenal. This in my personal opinion would make the game much more interesting because you could then do whole bombing runs on an island or decimate a large force with one bomb although you should make it heavy so you can't have a bush plane with a nuke strapped to it. Another suggestion would be to add some sort of lights such as flood lights or rotatable beacons so you could have a helicopter or plane that is able to search for targets in darkness.
