License your simulator for unlimited use outside your home, or for generating revenue.
Hardware and frame-rate checks make the simulator eligible for FAA-Certification.
Enable cylindrical and spherical projection (as found in large simulators).
Protect your fine-tuned settings and preferences by enabling a password-protected mode that prevents any unauthorized changes.
Light brightness, intensity, spread, and more – all computed in real time with the laws of physics.
Gorgeous global water rendering, complete with wave height controls and floatplane interaction based on feedback from expert pilots.
Tree color and leaf coverage vary to show season – snow accumulates, too!
Gorgeous, geographically-aware water colors.
Large variety of 3D trees with variation of species, size, and seasonal effects. They even sway in the wind.
The entire world now comes to life with FMOD sound – birds in the forest, cars in the cities and of course, ground service vehicles.
So, to build a simulator for professional use, simply:
Note that you will need one pro-use license—whether digital download or USB key—per computer if you’re planning a multi-machine simulator.
For professional-caliber flight sim hardware, we recommend Precision Flight Controls.
We’d like to send you a free one-month course on how training in a flight simulator can make you a better pilot. In this course, we’ll show you how you can:
You’ll also receive our “tips & tricks” newsletter about once a month, jam packed with X-Plane news, add-ons, & more.
Once again, this course on getting the most out of your flight simulator training is completely free.
Don’t want email? No problem. You can read the emails we send in the course here.
