    Wow, 50 dollars? Not saying that your product isnt worth that, but thats pretty pricey for an add-on isnt it? I was expecting something more along the lines of 20 dollars CAD, but I guess for a premium addon such as this, one is expected to pay a premium price.

    Jon, Holger and team

    I agree with the comment by Doom.
    I would gladly pay the $50.00 if I knew it was going to you. But when you think of the cost to develop FSX and what the deluxe version retails for, this appears a little steep.

    I know Francois has a site to maintain and there are costs to do this. It just seems to me that you and your team are getting ripped off. I hope there is a “try before you buy” capability.

    Your screenshots have convinced me, that this is a premium add on from premium people, but i would like to fly it on my computer.

    To buy or not to buy, that is the question???

    This is the same price as the FS9 version, and indeed the scope of this addon is quite a bit bigger than most. So, yes, we consider it a premium product.

    Hi Rennie, one of the reasons Holger and I work with Francois is that he has very little overhead. The exact split is of course confidential, but the authors receive a very significant portion of the retail price and I think it’s a fair deal for all.

    Try-before-you-buy is a good suggestion, but I’m not sure we have the ability to support that it this time. Will advise.

    Backatcha Rennie on try-before-you-buy: technically we’d have to design that into the product, and we don’t think it’s necessary. FS9 users were quite satisfied, and we believe FSX users will be as well.

    Just make sure you can run FSX with SP1 to your satisfaction.
