  • DVD-ROM drive

Make sure your computer meets the minimum specifications for X-Plane 10 or X-Plane 11

Gleim recommends the use of a control yoke and rudder pedals. While X-Plane does allow you to fly using the mouse, it's much more beneficial to your training to use flight controls that are similar to what you will be using in the actual airplane.

Gleim recommends using Logitech peripherals.
