Can you detail the purchase options for Prepar3D? Can we buy direct from Lockheed?



Thanks

Hi Christian,



You will be be able to purchase direct from this website through our online store. That includes VARs. Specific options will be detailed in the purchase pages, however for info there will be two options. One for purchase of the client for commercial use, the other will be for VARs only that are using Prepar3D within a solution. (This is a separate option only available for registered VARs.)



Note that if you download the client, you only need to get the license keys for additional activations, you don't need to download the client again. Hope this helps.



Regards,

John

Hi john,



Im still not quite clear on the licensing options.



As i understand it becoming a registered developer gives you two full runtime licenses to enable you to develop an application but not sell or use this application in a Commercial training setting.



the purchase of a full retail license enables you to develop a training solution that can then be used in a training setting (e.g a one off full cockpit simulator for use in a flying school)



and becoming a value added reseller will enable you to build and sell full fixed cockpit simulators that come with prepar3d solutions installed.



Are there any specific prerequisites you need to satisfy inorder to become a value added reseller? also are there any ITAR issues covereing the software for international users?



Best Regards

Hi Michael,



I will get into the documentation today to clarify things more.

Yes, this is correct, those licenses can be used for development, testing and integration etc, but not deployed to a customer site.

Yes, you would purchase a full retail license if you wanted to deploy that license into such an environment, or your customer could purchase it.

To clarify, you do not need to be a VAR to do this. The VAR program is for those companies that because of volume purchases will qualify for volume discounts. In other words, anyone can purchase a client license and incorporate it into a solution, or use it for training purposes. The VAR program is for those that will buy in quantity and incorporate it into a solution.



Also, we are not looking for resellers of Prepar3D on its own. VARs would be companies that have "Prepar3D inside" such as simulators, or training applications for example.

See above. VARS are not software resellers, but solution providers. When someone applies to be a VAR, they will submit a description of the proposed solution, we review and then approve. Companies that don't qualify are normally turned down because they are simply bundling Prepar3D with an add-on, such as scenery, or environmental enhancements. What we need to see is a specific solution, such as a training application or a simulation system and so on.



VARS are also subject to minimum orders (cumulative, they don't need to purchase these up front) before the discount kicks in and must maintain a certain level of sales over a 12 month period.



There are no ITARS restrictions on the Prepar3D software. See the Exporting information under the Support section in the website.



Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have other questions. This is all good feedback that will allow me to make the documentation better for the programs!



Regards,



John
