Prepar3D v6 Licensing and Pricing Announced

Following Lockheed Martin’s announcement of Prepard3D v6 at this year’s FSExpo, Lockheed Martin has now released details on the licensing and pricing model.

Prepar3D v6 is set to release soon, and with it comes some changes to the software’s licensing options. The most significant change is the removal of the Academic license and the introduction of a new Personal license. The Personal license will be available to anyone who wants to use Prepar3D for personal use, regardless of whether they are a student or not. However, users with a Personal license will be required to maintain internet connectivity while using the software.

Business, military, and educational institutions will still need to purchase a Professional or Professional Plus license. The Professional license will cost $350, while the Professional Plus license will cost $2,750. Developer licenses for Prepar3D v6 Professional and Professional Plus will be available for $9.99 and $50 per month, respectively.

Previous versions of Prepar3D will be updated to match the new pricing structure when Prepar3D v6 is released.
