GraphSim To Publish X-Plane 8 For Mac & PC
8:55 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

GraphSim will be publishing X-Plane 8, the upcoming upgrade to the popular general aviation sim from Laminar Research. In a conversation with IMG this morning, GraphSim's Jeff Morgan said the game will be shipping for the Mac and PC in November.

Here's a bit more info on the game:

X-Plane is the most comprehensive and powerful flight simulator available for the personal computer. X-Plane simulates anything that flies: single-engine fixed wing props to multi-engine jets; gliders to dirigibles; helicopters to spacecraft to VTOLs such as the V-22 Osprey and AV8-B Harrier.

X-Plane has the most realistic flight model available for personal
computers. It comes with subsonic and supersonic flight dynamics,
simulating aircraft from the Bell 206 Jet-Ranger helicopter and Cessna 172
light plane to the supersonic SR-71.

X-Plane comes with 29 aircraft spanning the aviation industry (and history),
and several hundred more are freely downloadable from the internet.

We'll be posting more information on X-Plane 8 as it becomes available. In the meantime, head over to GraphSim's web site for more info on the game including 4 new screenshots.
