    I have written this handbook to help you set up X-Plane 12 correctly and optimally.

    This is Version 1.2 of the handbook - It is free to all existing purchasers of the Version 1.0 version – Just redownload from your store account.

    The PDF has now grown to 439 pages (224 double spreads). All the hardware recommendations are up to date, and there is even some new stuff from X-Plane 12.1.0 included. The index is now a massive list of bookmarks which appear on the side

    This book is not a replacement for the official X-Plane 12 manual; but rather should be used in conjunction with it as a step-by-step guide to setting up X-Plane on a Windows PC. The handbook is a supplement to the official Laminar Research manual - primarily for Windows users, although most of the book applies to MAC and LINUX versions as well.  The emphasis is on setting up X-Plane 12 correctly right at the start. I have approached the reader with a Windows 11 operating system in mind. Most of the tips are equally valid for a Windows 10 system. While all the X-Plane 12 information applies to the Apple Mac user, the Hardware and O/S setup are obviously not applicable to MAC users - the X-Plane contents of the book, however, certainly apply to Mac-based machines.

    The book also includes many clarifications, tips and answers to many questions and problems that customers have approached me with over the past few years of offering X-Plane 11 assistance.

    Flying Low - the X-Plane 12 Handbook is book 1 of a two-book series. This book covers the installation and usage of the "out-of-the-box" software package X-plane 12. The second book will cover add-ons and scenery, and I will publish the second book shortly after X-Plane 12 has been released. It can't be published yet because add-on makers and scenery creators still need to get their hands on the finished X-Plane product and complete their new/updated products first.

    The X-Plane 12 Handbook - Book 1 starts by discussing your intentions and your needs for your simulator.

    Then we go on to hardware considerations - computer and peripherals.

    I assume you will set up X-Plane 12 from scratch, either with new hardware (buyer's guide included) or with your existing hardware.

    Then we begin step-by-step instructions on setting up the Windows 11 operating system to run X-Plane 12 optimally.

    Once the computer(s) are set up, we look at peripheral calibration and the setting up of the X-Plane 12 simulator itself.

    Next, we look at optimizing X-Plane 12 in detail—a large section of short "How To" articles follow. The X-Plane 12 manual deals with most of these, but I have taken a different approach to explaining things.  

    The book's final part consists of an extensive illustrated glossary of aviation terms that you will likely come across when flying X-Plane 12.
