Welcome, Early Adopter. In X-Plane 12, every major aspect of how Laminar Research simulates the world and its effects on aviation has been rewritten based on first-principles physics and real-world data with tireless pursuit of realism. We are happy to share that with you now via X-Plane 12 Early Access.
This purchase gives you access to the X-Plane 12 Early Access program. This product is still in active development. You will be able to download and install X-Plane 12 right away and receive free updates for the life of v12. We also include access to X-Plane 11 in case any of your add-ons are not yet compatible with X-Plane 12.
