On this site you will find a collection of high quality digital aircraft models, suitable for the x-plane® flight simulator. Why just for x-plane®? To learn more about "the world's best flight simulator" click here!

Since most of my models are lowcost payware, you may ask:

• What do I get for my money?

• What makes the difference to most other aircraft models available for x-plane?

The answer is simple: I feel that a virtual aircraft model has to be a SIMULATION, as realistic as it can be, rather than being a game.

I am well aware of the actual "mainstream" focusing on excellently modelled 3D objects and visual effects. And there have been made some really great looking aircraft by other authors. For me this matter is not quite off topics, as the A380 and the upcoming A321 show. But priority is clearly on simulation of the major systems like FADEC, auto-throttle, autopilot, FMS, fly-by-wire logig etc. which partially can only be realized by plug-in technology. In a professional simulator designed for pilot training, you will find a very sparse exterior model of the aircraft or none at all, but a cockpit which can hardly be distinguished from the one of the real aircraft. For this reason I am focusing in first place on the flightmodel and on photorealistic 2D panels, the function of the instruments and realism of procedures, in order to provide a sensation of flying which is as authentic as possible.

Each of my virtual aircraft is the result of extensive research for authentic data and hundreds of hours of design, construction and testflights. Patience is the key to realism, much more than talent. It takes several month of work, before I publish a new plane.

In fact, a lot of time is spent on research and collecting data and pictures of the aircraft. Whenever possible, I try to get a copy of the original POH or manual. Sometimes these documents are classified. Then the necessary information must aquired by interviewing pilots, engineers, mechanics, who understandably cannot violate the restrictions of confidentiality. But one can read between the lines, and by the time, more and more gaps of knowledge are closed. And one day even the pilot says: "Wow, that's realistic! I do not notice any difference to the flight characteristics of the real thing."

In order to obtain photorealistic panels with all their instruments in function, all objects are placed upon authentic drawings, to ensure the correct position of each item... as far as PlaneMaker permits it. The final artwork, based on fotographs of the real cockpit, is created after the funcionality has been varified during countless testflights.

Panel: Even small aircraft may have fascinating features, like animated starter keys and an animated sunscreen.

Documentation: A POH is a must. Some are short, others are longer, depending on what's available and what's relevant for the flight simulator. Anyway, you receive sufficient information to perform realistic flight procedures.

That's what you get!
