How to Download Aircraft for FSX




If you are a fan of flight simulation games, you probably have heard of Microsoft Flight Simulator X (FSX), one of the most popular and realistic flight simulators ever created. FSX allows you to fly various types of aircraft, from small gliders and light experimental planes to jumbo jets and military fighters, in different weather conditions and locations around the world.

But did you know that you can also download and install additional aircraft for FSX, enhancing your simulation experience and expanding your collection of planes? There are thousands of free and payware add-on aircraft available for FSX, ranging from historical and modern civil and military aircraft, to helicopters, gliders, seaplanes, and even spacecraft. You can find them on various websites dedicated to flight simulation, such as .


In this article, we will show you how to download and install add-on aircraft for FSX using three basic methods:


  • Installing freeware aircraft with base model included



  • Installing freeware repaints for already installed third party freeware base models



  • Installing freeware repaints for stock Microsoft FSX aircraft



Before we start, you need to know where to put your new aircraft files. FSX Steam's aircraft files are kept in a dedicated folder within the FSX Steam program files. The default location is:


C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/FSX/SimObjects/Airplanes (or Rotorcraft)


You can use the Airplanes folder to add airplanes and the Rotorcraft folder to add helicopters.


Method 1: Installing freeware aircraft with base model included

  • Choose and download an addon aircraft from a reputable website. For example, you can browse the section on Fly Away Simulation and pick one of the many planes available.



  • Open your newly downloaded file. If you don't see it on your Windows desktop, use Windows Explorer to find it in your Downloads folder. The file will usually be in a compressed format, such as ZIP or RAR. You will need a program like to open it.



  • Follow the instructions that come with the file. Some files will have a readme.txt or installation.txt file that will tell you what to do. Others will have an executable file that will install the aircraft automatically. If there are no instructions, you can use the following general steps:



  • Extract the aircraft folder from the compressed file to your FSX Steam Airplanes or Rotorcraft folder. The aircraft folder will usually have a name that identifies the aircraft, such as Cessna_172 or Boeing_737. Make sure you don't extract any other files or folders that are not part of the aircraft package.



  • Launch FSX and select your new aircraft. You can do this by clicking on Free Flight, then on Change, then on Aircraft. You should see your new aircraft in the list of available planes. You can also use the search box to find it by name or manufacturer.



Congratulations, you have successfully installed a freeware aircraft with base model included for FSX!


Method 2: Installing freeware repaints for already installed third party freeware base models




This method is used when you download a repaint for an add-on aircraft that you already have installed in your FSX. A repaint is a new set of texture files that change the appearance of an aircraft, such as its color, livery, or markings. A repaint does not include the model, panel, sound, or other files of the aircraft, so you need to have the base model installed first. Here are the steps to follow:


  • Download a repaint for an existing base model from a reputable website. For example, you can browse the section on Simviation and pick one of the many liveries available.



  • Open your newly downloaded file. If you don't see it on your Windows desktop, use Windows Explorer to find it in your Downloads folder. The file will usually be in a compressed format, such as ZIP or RAR. You will need a program like WinZip or WinRAR to open it.



  • Copy the texture folder from the compressed file to your base model folder. The texture folder will usually have a name that identifies the repaint, such as texture.AAL or texture.BA. The base model folder will be located in your FSX Steam Airplanes or Rotorcraft folder and will have a name that identifies the aircraft, such as Airbus_A320 or Bell_206.



  • Edit the aircraft.cfg file to add a new entry for the repaint. The aircraft.cfg file is a text file that contains information about the aircraft, such as its title, description, model, panel, sound, and texture. You can open it with Notepad or any other text editor. You need to add a new section for the repaint at the end of the file, following this format:



[fltsim.X] title=Name of the repaint sim=Name of the base model model= panel= sound= texture=Name of the texture folder kb_checklists= kb_reference= atc_id= atc_airline= atc_flight_number= ui_manufacturer=Name of the manufacturer ui_type=Name of the type ui_variation=Name of the variation ui_typerole=Name of the role ui_createdby=Name of the creator description=Description of the repaint


You need to replace X with the next number in sequence after the last entry in the file. For example, if the last entry is [fltsim.3], you need to use [fltsim.4] for your new entry.


You also need to replace the values in each line with the appropriate information for your repaint. You can find some of this information in the readme.txt or installation.txt file that comes with your repaint, or in the original aircraft.cfg file of your base model. Here is an example of a completed entry for a repaint:


[fltsim.4] title=Airbus A320 American Airlines sim=Airbus_A320 model= panel= sound= texture=AAL kb_checklists= kb_reference= atc_id=N320AA atc_airline=American atc_flight_number=1123 ui_manufacturer=Airbus ui_type=A320-200 ui_variation=American Airlines ui_typerole=Commercial Airliner ui_createdby=Rikoooo description=This is a repaint of the Airbus A320-200 in American Airlines livery. The base model is by Project Airbus and the repaint is by Rikoooo.


  • Save the aircraft.cfg file and close it.



  • Launch FSX and select your new repaint. You can do this by clicking on Free Flight, then on Change, then on Aircraft. You should see your new repaint in the list of available planes. You can also use the search box to find it by name or manufacturer.



Congratulations, you have successfully installed a freeware repaint for an already installed third party freeware base model for FSX!


Method 3: Installing freeware repaints for stock Microsoft FSX aircraft




This method is used when you download a repaint for a stock FSX aircraft that comes with the game. A stock FSX aircraft is one of the planes that are included in the original installation of FSX, such as the Boeing 737-800 or the Cessna 172 Skyhawk. The steps to install a repaint for a stock FSX aircraft are similar to those for a third party freeware base model, with some minor differences. Here are the steps to follow:
