Billing itself as an engineering tool, rather than a game, X-Plane 10 is a different approach to civil flight simulation than something like Microsoft Flight Simulator X. The simulation feature over 33,000 worldwide airports, as well as aircraft carriers, oil rigs, frigates and rooftop helicopter landing pads. It features a wide variety of aircraft and also allows those using the simulator to create their own aircraft which can be realistically modelled so it will fly and respond to weather conditions like a normal plane.
The following aircraft are included on the disks:
|Cirrus Vision SF50||North American X-15|
|Beechcraft Baron 58||Lancair Evolution|
|Cessna 172SP||McDonnell Douglas KC-10 Extender|
|Piaggo P.180 Avanti||Boeing 747-400 and 747-100|
|Stinson L-5 Sentinel||Robinson R22 Beta helicopter|
|ASK-21 glider||Boeing B-52G Stratofortress|
|Beechcraft King Air C90B||Bombardier Canadair CL-415|
|F-22 Raptor||Viggen JA37|
|Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird||F-4 Phantom II|
|Boeing AV-8B Harrier II||Bell 206 helicopter|
|Lockheed C-130 Hercules||Space Shuttle Orbiter|
|Great Planes PT-60 RC plane||Thunder Tiger Raptor 30 v2 RC helicopter|
