X-Plane steps up to the plate…

Austin Meyer, creator of the X-Plane flight simulator made an announcement recently on his website regarding the closure of the ACES studio by Microsoft:


X-Plane has become a real world-class flight simulation platform and with the SDK it is a great choice for cockpit builders.  I’m a user of X-Plane and I’ve written plug-ins for it.  I would highly recommend this if you’re looking for a commercial  alternative to Microsoft Flight Simulator.  For those that are interested in an Open Source flight simulator, you cannot beat FlightGear

I should also mention that X-Plane is cross-platform.  It’s available for Windows, Linux and Macintosh.
