*IMPORTANT*

Are you sick of flying the default airplanes on flight simulator? Are you done with using fake airlines such as Orbit or World Travel?

Here, you'll find the best websites where you can find and add aircraft and textures to your collection. You can also add aircraft carriers, cars, airports, scenery and tons of other objects to enhance your flight simulator experience.

Take a look at my favorite websites:

Fly Away Simulation

I love this website because all their airplane files work, and they work well. They don’t have a huge selection, but what they have is quality. Good selection of miscellaneous objects.

Simviation

Biggest selection of airplanes available on the internet. I can’t guarantee that every airplane or object is good quality.

FS Download

My second favorite. Tons of aircraft and most of the files carry decent quality planes with virtual cockpit and 2D cockpit. You have to read their description before you choose so you know exactly what they offer.

FSX Download

Good all around site, same format as Simviation. Search and download. Make sure you download a file that suits your flight simulator (FS2004, FSX, FS98 etc.). Everything's free :)

SimTegral

Not a known site, but it’s got GREAT planes. About 100 commercial airplanes and a couple hundred other types of planes. Great files, great quality.

      This is a great hub, but have you used World Of AI? I use it all the time to add real world airlines to my FSX. I get everyone from American to Air Emirates for Dubai's airport, Air France, Jet Blue, TAM (Brazil), Qatar, United with the Continental Airlines artwork. Amazing.

      Voted up!

      No problem, that's why I made this hub. I had so much trouble trying to figure out how to get FS planes, I decided to make a tutorial.
