Pro version of A320X

Lefteris Kalamaras
Posted September 30

We will be coming out with more enhanced versions of the A320-X, intended for Home Cockpit Builders and Professional users which will include more complete failure sets among other features intended for those markets.

Once we have further information on this topic we will share it with everyone.

The "professional" version (complete with Instructor Station etc) is NOT intended for the same market and will NOT carry an equivalent price tag as the current version. I am glad there is demand for it, but I would hate for people to think that we're addressing the same audience here.

Not paying $140 for this...just not gonna do it. Hell, I don't even have P3Dv4 yet--or any version of Prepar3d for that matter.  I do, however, have X-Plane 11 and there will soon be a 320 by Flight Factor, the "Airbus 320 Ultimate". And it is looking very nice indeed.  Though no price is announced, I'm betting it'll be lower than the exorbitant price set by FSLabs.
