Summary: Bought this for my father in law (85) ex glider pilot. He is running it on a desktop MAC and absolutely loves it. We are using the speedlink black widow flightstick and it works well. He reckons it is the best present he has ever had.
Summary: This is great value for money. The graphics are good and the experience great. I fly light aircraft and with feedback joysticks etc its a great way to have fun when the weather is bad. I run it on an imac
Summary: The product was fantastic may I just say that one should plug their joystick in to the computer before they both up the game otherwise most of it is self explanatory and you tube tutorials are fantastic for this game helping with auto pilot settings etc.
Summary: Excellent stuff provided your computer is up for satisfying this simulator the apt requirements. Immense quantity of online manuals, resources and add-ons ( xplane.org) make it a pleasure for newbies while style offering a challenging experience for those seeking it.
great game, takes time to install all the content. read my review.

Summary: This is a really good flight simulator for the mac. I was very happy with the price and how fast I received the item. Its was delivered to me within 24hrs. The software is large in size, and to install the whole planet took me 3hrs on a imac dual core, 4gb ram computer.
Outstanding. A great training aid and accompaniment to real-world flying lessons.

Summary: If accurate flight dynamics and real-seeming physics are what you're after (how the plane handles in all conditions) then X Plane 9 really does deliver outstandingly in these areas. True, the graphics can't (at the moment) compete with Microsoft's flight simulators..
Summary: I have X plane 9 for my new macbook. X plane works fine and has a cool flying experience with my black widow flight stick that worked out of the box. Really cool water graphics and a really tough challenge to land a helicopter on a oil rig or complete re-entry in the space shuttle.
