About Acro FS

By Aviators, For Gamers

Acro FS is a recreational, stick-and-rudder flight simulator for high-performance aerobatic aircraft. Practice your routine, race against the clock, or just get up there and fly - the checklist is done and the engine is running!

Created by Jim Bourke, airshow pilot and member of the US Unlimited Aerobatic Team, Acro FS was designed from the ground up to accurately simulate aerobatic flight. It allows you to experience what it’s like to strap into a stunt plane and take to the sky.

Hop into the cockpit, 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.

Special Features

Virtual Reality

For a truly immersive experience, use your Oculus, SteamVR, or Windows Mixed Reality headset. Look around the cockpit, check your gauges, or take a glance out the wing to make sure that 45-degree upline is true.


Acro FS is built using Unigine2, a cutting-edge large-world game engine. This gives the simulator tremendous realism, whether you’re looking down at the desert from 5000 feet or inspecting the instrument panel up close.


Test your skill against the clock, flying through inflatable pylons or holographic gates. Just be careful - the ground comes up fast!

Robust Flight Model

Under the hood, Acro FS is powered by the FlightAxis physics system. This predictive model simulates each component of the aircraft and integrates these effects into a total response. This allows Acro FS to model the exotic conditions created by aerobatic flight - there are no “blank spots” in the flight physics.

Newest Features

New Aircraft

Hop into the cockpit of four different full-scale airplanes including the classic Extra 330SC: Fuzz Machine, the Sbach 342, the Super Decathlon, and the Yak-54: Russian Thunder!

New Airports

Explore four beautiful airports, each with fully customizable environmental controls! Hit the runway at dawn and ride the jetstreams clear into the night. Whether you prefer clear skies or a treacherous storm, Acro FS let's you enjoy flying in any weather from the safety of your gaming space.

Multi-controller Support

Acro FS now supports multiple-controller setups, meaning you can plug in all the bells and whistles of your "mockpit" and fly as you would an actual plane! Combine with virtual reality for a truly immersive and unforgettable flying experience.

System Requirements

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.
