To disable combat when flying a fighter in X-Plane for iPad and X-Plane HDEF 4G, you can do one of two things:
- Switch to a different flight region (such as Innsbruck, Austria), since some regions do not provide enemy aircraft at all, or
- Turn the enemy aircraft’s skill level down to 0% in the Set menu, so that the enemy will not fire on you (although the enemy aircraft will still be there).
To switch to a different flight region, simply tap the Settings button in the upper right of the screen, move to the Region tab, and flip through the available options. That region will be loaded when you go back to the Map tab to return to the flight.
To turn down the enemy’s skill level, open the Settings (by tapping the button in the upper right of the screen), go to the Set tab. Drag the skill level slider all the way down to zero. Then, return to the Map tab to return to your flight.
