Expanding X-Plane with New Aircraft, Scenery, and Plug-Ins
X-Plane can be modified in a number of ways. You can add aircraft or custom scenery, or you can download plug-ins that can radically alter the functionality of the simulator. If you don’t find the aircraft, scenery, or plug-ins you’re looking for, you can create you’re own with a bit of programming know-how. It’s all discussed on the Extending X-Plane page.
