X-Plane Flight Simulator/Getting Started

Let's walk through the process of getting started with X-Plane.

Get a Copy edit

The first step in getting started is to get a copy of X-Plane. You can download a demonstration version from the X-Plane home page as well as a number of other download sites. If you want to fly for more than 6 minutes (and most flight aficionados will want to) you need to purchase the program to get the install disk. The install disk must be in the computer to unlock the demo and allow unlimited flight.
