What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Acro FS is still in development, but we are excited to get it into the hands of flight simulation enthusiasts. User feedback during the Early Access period will help us refine the software, improving the final product.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?


How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan to improve the following:
  • General performance
  • Flight Physics
  • VR UI
  • Additional Race levels
  • DLC support
  • Sound design
  • Support for multiple controllers at once (i.e. flight stick, throttle, and pedals)
  • Complete localization in French, Italian, and German

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version is a fully-functional flight simulator. It includes one airport and one aircraft. Flight physics is still being refined, but works well already.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?


How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will rely on the Community for bug reports and gameplay feedback.

Playtest feedback will be used to refine race target times.

User feedback will be helpful in optimizing performance for a range of systems.”

About This Game

By Aviators, For Gamers

Acro FS is a stick-and-rudder aerobatic flight simulator created by Jim Bourke, airshow pilot and member of the US Unlimited Aerobatic Team. Designed from the ground up to accurately simulate aerobatic flight, it allows you to experience what it’s like to strap into a high-performance stunt plane and take to the sky. Take control of an aerobatic airplane, throttle up, and discover what you can do. There’s no navigation, no radios - just a lot of horsepower in a state-of-the-art aircraft.

Exciting Features

  • High Speed Racing: Challenging Entertainment
  • Virtual Reality Immersion: Oculus, SteamVR, or Windows Mixed Reality 
  • Expansive World Design: Hundreds of Thousands of Square Miles to Explore
  • Environmental Controls: Wind, Precipitation, Daylight At Your Command
  • Stunning Visual Detail: Powered by Unigine2
  • Impressive Physics: Accurate, Predictive, Component Based Simulation
  • Multi-controller Support: Use Your Multi-USB Cockpit System

Controller Required!

Acro FS requires a controller to fly. For good control, you'll need a 4-axis controller. A gamepad will work, as will "3D" flight sticks that include pitch, roll, yaw, and throttle. For best results, you can also use an RC-style controller that places these controls on two sticks, or muliti-USB systems with stick, throttle, and rudder pedals.
