Once again we have a collection of high-quality freeware files for you to enjoy. These aircraft, scenery and utilities easily compare with many commercial products but don’t forget if you’ve enjoyed a particular file please let the author know – it’s their only payback! By the same token we’re always interested to hear from you if you’ve downloaded or designed a file that you think is worth sharing.

Although the authors of these files have very kindly given us their permission to include them on our website, they still remain the property and copyright of the authors. You are free to enjoy them for your own use but they must not in any circumstances be distributed, copied, uploaded to any other websites or disassembled in any way whatsoever.

Library files
Most X-plane users will already know that many freeware airport designers make use of the freeware library files to enhance their creations. Consequently, it’s important to read the documentation within each file to find out which libraries have been used. These library files need to be installed in order to experience these airports as the authors intended.

Lockheed Martin F-35A
We feature hundreds of freeware aircraft each year but not many of them are produced to the professional level of this latest release from Exploration Out Industries (EOI) and The JSF Development Team.

It depicts one of the most expensive projects ever undertaken by the US military, the Lockheed Martin F-35A. At that time it became the subject of much criticism because Lockheed was allowed to design, test and produce the F-35 all at the same time. Nevertheless it’s now in service with many NATO countries including Australia, Italy, Norway, UK and Turkey.

This package includes a range of different liveries and a superb fully illustrated and highly detailed manual. The developers said: “The Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) model produced by Exploration Out Industries (EOI) is not an accurate study level depiction of real the F-35. A leading factor for the difference is that this model operates with basic stock systems provided by X-Plane 11 that were not intended to reproduce fifth-generation combat aircraft. It is with great hope that more accurate avionics will be included in the future for a better representation of the real F-35A.”

The group has done a fine job with the tools available to them, as I’m sure you’ll see when you fly the aircraft yourself; it looks fabulous and handles beautifully. We have also included a promo video of the aircraft below:
