Your Design in X-plane


Do you have an aircraft you want to see accurately represented in X-plane? 


X-Aerodynamics can create a highly accurate, realistic flight model of the design of your choosing. We can also assist in the design & development of an X-plane concept based on your unique ideas.


What you can expect:

  • Accurate flying surfaces (wings, tail, etc.), including planform and airfoils, which are custom generated as needed.

  • Fuselage / nacelles / bodies modeled precisely.

  • Accurate engine modeling, including fuel consumption, critical altitudes, speeds, props etc. to the full extent that X-plane is capable. 

  • Controls: Accurate position, area, and deflections to real-world values.

  • Performance fine tuning: Accurate performance, using best available numbers, performance graphs, and test-pilot reports, wherever available (target <3% deviation).



  • 2D panel with no customized graphics

  • 2D panel with customized panel background

  • Basic textures on Planemaker model

  • 3D detail visual enhancements

  • Full textures with livery / scheme of your choice

  • Tested V-speeds, etc in printable file


  • Concept design assistance & development

  • General arrangement (3-view) drawings

  • More possible, please ask!


Source information:

The accuracy of the flight model is of course dependent on accurate data to work from. I will endeavour to source the best data I can find, however, any data you can provide will help produce the best possible result. The following examples are particularly helpful, if they can be provided:


  • Pilot’s operating handbook (POH) / Flight Manual

  • Maintenance manual

  • Flight test reports

  • Performance charts / graphs

  • TCDS


For your own design, you will need to provide all data and consistent drawings for the model to be built from. X-Aero can assist in developing these for new designs if needed.


The resulting product will be a detailed X-plane performance model that is as close to real as is possible with the current version of X-plane.



The development time for an aircraft flight model is dependent on your requirements and chosen options.

We can discuss your timeline and work to your requirements. Typically, a basic model can be delivered in under 30 days.



Determined on a per-project basis, as no two projects are exactly the same. Some considerations are:


  • Project complexity

  • Desired timeframe

  • Options chosen

  • Commercial or non-commercial use


Please contact X-Aero to discuss a project and any questions you may have about creating your aircraft.

While every effort is made to ensure accuracy of appearance and in-simulator behavior of the aircraft types developed, there is no guarantee that these will exactly match their real-world counterparts. The use of flight simulators for design, training, skills currency, and recreation is encouraged, however, users should be aware that no simulator model can perfectly emulate reality. There may be minor or major differences between simulator models and real-world performance due to limitations of the simulator or the aircraft model portrayed.
