When you purchase this digital download edition, you will receive an email confirmation with your product key. This key will allow you to install, and use X-Plane 11 without needing any other products. You will also receive the x-plane installer for Windows and Mac. If you use Linux, get the installer for it here. Threshold has a great beginners guide on everything you need to know about X-Plane.

X-Plane 11 includes:

  • Universal platforms (Mac, Windows, Linux)

  • Worldwide scenery

  • 11 high-quality¬†aircraft with immersive¬†3-D cockpits

  • Free internet updates for all versions of 11.xx, including airport improvements

  • With a brand¬†new user interface, and a new level of quality in the included aircraft, X-Plane 11 is the upgrade you‚Äôve been hoping for.

Minimum Hardware Requirements:

  • CPU: Intel¬†Core i3, i5, or i7 CPU with 2 or more cores, or AMD equivalent. (Dual-core CPUs¬†slower than 3 GHz should¬†try the demo¬†before purchasing.)

  • Memory: 8 GB RAM

  • Video Card: a¬†DirectX 11-capable video card from NVIDIA, AMD or Intel with at least 1 GB VRAM

If your system is borderline, we encourage you to¬†try the demo¬†first.¬†The¬†full version of the simulator will perform¬†exactly¬†the same as the demo‚ÄĒneither better nor worse.


  • CPU: Intel Core i5 6600K at 3.5 ghz or faster

  • Memory: 16-24 GB RAM or more

  • Video Card: a DirectX 12-capable video card from NVIDIA, AMD or Intel with at least 4 GB VRAM (GeForce GTX 1070 or better or similar from AMD)


Supported Video Cards:

  • NVIDIA: NVIDIA¬†GeForce 420 or newer (600 or newer recommended)

  • AMD: AMD HD5000 or newer (HD7000 with GCN core or newer recommended)

  • Intel: Intel HD 2000 or newer (HD4000 or newer recommended)


Supported Operating Systems:

  • OS X: OS X 10.10 or newer (e.g. Yosemite, El Capitan, or Sierra)

  • Windows: Windows 7, 8, or 10, 64-bit

  • Linux: Varies

    • While X-Plane 11 will run on Linux,¬†Laminar Research don‚Äôt¬†provide support for specific distributions; if you want to run on Linux, you¬†will need to try X-Plane on your distribution to see if it is compatible. With that in mind, we¬†have developers using Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 LTS successfully.

    • For Linux,¬†the proprietary driver from AMD or NVIDIA are required to run X-Plane. You may be able to get X-Plane to run on the Mesa/Gallium driver with¬†an Intel GPU, but this is unsupported. Laminar Research absolutely¬†do not support¬†the¬†fully open source¬†drivers for AMD and NVIDIA.
