So I am trying to convert a Version 8 aircraft to Version 11 via planemaker. I am downloading X-Plane 9 but the estimated time keeps going up (its at 32 hours right now) and it keeps getting a server error. Is there any way to get planemaker V9 at the moment?

Hi NASA Test Pilot,

I am not with Laminar Research; just a flight simmer.

Because the latest version is XP11.30 I am of the opinion that Laminar Research no longer makes a digital download version of XP9 available.  Vague memory flashback of an announcement made sometime back when XP11 was about to be or had been released.

A disc version appears to be still available.  Use the following link found at

To get the full correct information contact Laminar at [email protected]

Good luck
