Here are the results of the latest X-Plane 11 usage data as of 04 June, 2018. If you’d like to compare, here is the previous post from November 2017.
X-Plane collects diagnostic & usage data on a strictly opt-in basis. All information we collect is anonymous; it does not include contact information like your name or email address. We share the aggregate usage data with the community but we do not share or sell (or even have direct access to) the raw data.
Below is a handful of easy-to-digest charts, plus the raw data at the bottom of the post for those that are interested.
Items of note
All data in these charts are for users of the full version only—we’ve filtered out demo users.
If an aircraft’s name, studio, or number of engine fields in Plane Maker are changed at any point, the aircraft will show up in the data as two different entries. Tyler did a lot of work to consolidate obvious duplicates, but aircraft authors, please please please set this up correctly at the start and then leave it alone! It will make tracking data on your specific aircraft easier for everyone.
