The Cessna 172 SP in X-Plane 10 on a final approach

The free demo version of the X-Plane 10 flight simulator includes:

  • over 40 aircraft, including general aviation planes, airliners, gliders, helicopters, and fighters,
  • the ability to shoot IFR and VFR approaches with ATC guidance, and
  • immersive scenery for Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and the surrounding area.

The demo is identical to the full version of X-Plane, but it is limited to 15 minutes of flight at a time.

Download the demo + free Quick Start Guide

To make sure you have the best experience possible with X-Plane, we’d like to email you free, detailed instructions on installing and setting up the demo.


Download for other operating systems

Don't want the free Quick Start Guide? You can still download the Windows demo.

We need your email address to send you your free guide to setting up the demo. We want to make sure your installation is as quick and easy as possible, so you can get flying fast.

If you’d like, we will also send you a free month-long course on getting the most out of X-Plane, jam-packed with guides to the coolest parts of the sim.

We promise to never spam you, and we will never sell or share your email address. And, if you sign up for the course and change your mind, you can unsubscribe at any time.

Once again, the demo, Quick Start Guide, and email course are all completely free.


Note that if you already have the X-Plane 10 demo installed, this installer will update that demo instead.
