    Microsoft Windows

    Run the flight sim plugin installer.
    The plugin installer will check the system for all FS2020, X-Plane, FSX and Prepar3D installations. It shows what simulator software was found and if the plugin(s) is/are installed successfully. In networked set ups the plugin installer must run on the computer where the flight simulator is installed.

    Apple macOS

    Download the Flight Simulator plugin(s) for macOS.

    X-Plane 10, 11 and 12:
    From the zip file, select the folder of your X-Plane version, either X-Plane 10 and 11 or X-Plane 12, and from there copy the 'Air Plugin' folder to your X-Plane installation folder: 'X-Plane folder'/resources/plugins/'

    Example folder structure:

    ./X-Plane 12/resources/plugins/Air Plugin/64/mac.xpl


    Install required third party libraries

    Open up a terminal and issue command:

    sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev

    X-Plane 10, 11 and 12:
    Copy the 'Air Plugin' folder to your X-Plane installation folder:'X-Plane folder'/Resources/plugins/'
