Installing Add-on Aircraft

Looking to mix things up with some new aircraft? Check out for some of the newest and best options. Once you've downloaded the files, it's pretty straightforward!
  1. Unzip the downloaded file.
  2. Move the unzipped aircraft folder to X-Plane 12 > Aircraft.
  3. Restart X-Plane and enjoy!

The next time you launch X-Plane and start a new flight, your aircraft will show up in the aircraft grid of the Flight Configuration screen. 

(If the aircraft does not come with icons for the grid, you can have X‑Plane generate them by using the commands “(re)generate all icons for this aircraft” or “(re)generate the icon for the current aircraft & livery”)

Users can also upload their own aircraft to and similar sites, after creating a custom airplane per the Plane Maker manual
