The industry standard in flight simulation.
Training meets reality with Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D® simulation software. Private pilots, commercial organizations, militaries, and academia rely on Prepar3D for immersive, experiential learning. Prepar3D (pronounced “prepared”) is a visual simulation platform that allows users to create training scenarios across aviation, maritime, and ground domains. Users can train anywhere in the virtual world, from underwater to sub orbital space.
Prepar3D is infinitely customizable, and one can find endless online resources for improvement of their simulation experience for free on various websites. Prepar3D is an incredibly realistic virtual environment, and perfect for any training exercise or pleasure flying. Prepar3D ships standard on most of our simulators, and is pre-installed and ready for flight during installation.
Lockheed Martin released Prepar3D in 2010. Since then, Prepar3D has been leading the way for the future of flight simulation software with advancements in nearly every conceivable aspect of the system. P3D in many ways picked up the baton left by Microsoft Flight Simulators when they launched their last release in 2006. It improves upon the rudimentary FSX flight concepts, and it improves upon many features while still being very similar to FSX in terms of usability and the learning curve between the two software releases. Prepar3D has quickly risen to become one of the top three simulators on the VATSIM network, and is used by many in the aviation field for training and online. Part of this is that it is very customizable and can work according to your needs. This software gives flight schools the most freedom in terms of software that fits their exact requirements for training. Prepar3D also allows for virtually infinite add-ons, allowing the user to constantly change and adapt the environment as their needs shift. This software is installed when your simulator is being set up, and allows you to begin working, flying, and training immediately after being setup by our team of specialists. There is also an exhaustive resource of free and paid scenery available for download online, as well as many add-ons designed by professionals and individuals to improve the way your simulator functions. The sounds for the aircraft, world, and ATC in P3D are also top quality, with many sound pack add-ons available to improve it even further. The starter graphics look very refined also, but many add-ons such as additional sun glare and cloud enhancements further increase the experience. P3D is continuing to lead the way in the aviation industry as a preferred choice for training. Given the success, P3D was the perfect choice as a software for our simulators. Many people in the simulation community and flight school community alike prefer this software above all competitors. P3D is standard on all of our simulators, and we are proud to bring you the latest in training technology advancements.
