Seniors pricing.

Postby xmitr » Mon Jul 06, 2020 4:53 pm

Is seniors pricing available for P3D Pro v5? I would like to purchase but as a senior I find the $199 US price a bit high. (This converts to $260 Canadian).
I'm still on V3 but enjoy the Prepar3D experience very much. As a senior the rigors of flight simming are an excellent way to keep the mind sharp. The complexity and range of technologies that you have to master from learning how to control the aircraft, navigate, interact with ATC etc, plus keeping current with computer issues, makes this a fantastic activity in retirement. Especially in this time of pandemic shutdown. It's just the cost involved that I find a deterrent.

Unfortunately there isn't. You don't need the Pro version if you are using the sim for learning and training. You can use the Academic version which is only $59.99. See ... omparison/ for a discussion of the different types of licenses. Many of us use the Academic for training purposes. Also, please make sure your PC meets or exceeds the minimum requirements -- see

Hope this helps.
