By default, X-Plane 9 for Android includes the same aircraft as X-Plane 9 for iPhone/iPod Touch. However, it also has the ability to purchase additional aircraft for the simulator. Each aircraft costs $0.99, and will be billed to the account you use for the Android Market.

The currently unpurchased F-14D Tomcat

To purchase an aircraft:

  1. Open the Settings menu in X-Plane on your Android device.
  2. Flip through the aircraft until you come to the one you want to purchase. It should have yellow text beneath its image that reads “You do not have this one,” as in the image to the left.
  3. Tap the Buy it! button in the lower left (seen in the image to the left). You will be taken to the Android Market page for that aircraft.
  4. Tap Accept & buy (as seen in the image below) to be billed for the aircraft. You will then be taken back to the X-Plane app and a message will appear over the aircraft as it downloads, reading “Thank you. Your item will appear shortly.”
