Weather,trees, wind, light, seasonscompletely reimagined

Watch our trailer for a tour of the new features and enhancements in X-Plane 12

Flight Simulation, done right

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 seasonsnow 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 soundbirds in the forest, cars in the cities and of course, ground service vehicles

Light brightness, intensity, spread, and moreall computed in real time with the laws of physics

Jetways move to meet your aircraft when parked at the gate

Air Traffic Control follow regional procedures and accents around the world

Airport artists can choose from a library of pavement effects to perfectly capture the look-and-feel of airports by setting level of cracking, oil spills, pavement material, and more

Custom suite of endless control tower variation, easy to use for maximal realism

Proprietary algorithms to turn data from the real world into X-Plane weather

Powerful streams of upset air left in the atmosphere by other aircraftjust like real life

Small, powerful downdraftsperfectly modeled with pilot training in mind

Terrain-generated updrafts that allow gilders to gain altitude without a tow plane

Precipitation now accumulates on surfaces, freezing or thawing based on temperature

Immersiveto fully capture the sensation of flight

The Cessna Citation X is an American business jet produced by Cessna that made its maiden flight in 1993. The Citation X was the first aircraft from Cessna to use a Rolls-Royce engine and fully integrated avionics

X-Plane 12 includes detailed 3-D scenery for more than 17,000 airports around the worldall with new ground textures, towers and pavement effects to enhance realism
