Is $39.95 the new base price?

Recommended Posts

I have noticed most of the addon aircraft that have been released in the past year retail for $39.95.

Is 40 dollars going to be the new base price for aircraft?

Seems so. I was looking at my aircraft addon purchases in 2012, and prices were generally between $20-$30. Much of the rise is just inflation but I also think development standards have gone up and developers these days are supporting more simulators, eg many of these packages support FSX + P3D v2/v3/v4, so there's more complex work and testing involved in making an addon than there used to be.

Pretty much.  Well, except for A2A... they're $50+ (and worth every penny! :biggrin:)

Prices will continue to rise to keep pace with inflation, but also because simmers are willing to pay these inflated prices. It's simple economics.

I really don't mind the price tag as long as the product matches the price.

Modern sim models not only have to look and fly right but they have to have working systems modeled too.

My Milviz Beaver is a much better model than my old Aerosoft one.

Hmmmm, not really, it depends what aircraft you look at, but some recent releases look pretty cheap, like; Aerosoft AN-2 at €30 is $35; Just Flight Piper Arrow and Turbo Arrow at £28 are $37; Just Flight VC-10 at £25 is $33; Just Flight C-46 Commando at £25 is $33, but currently on offer at £17.50/$23.  That said, there are plenty of others over $40 too!
