Why Switch to Prepar3D?
Back in 2010 Lockheed Martin announced Prepar3D, a new flight simulation based on Microsoft's ESP source code, essentially creating a simulation platform equivalent to Flight Simulator X SP2. Since then, Lockheed has steadily improved Prepar3D to the point where it offers significant advantages over Fight Simulator.
Prepar3D is a flight simulation intended for use in air/sea/ground training, education and general aviation. It is available at prepar3d.com and is backward compatible with most Flight Simulator X addons.
- Most Flight Simulator X addons work great since Prepar3D is kept backward compatible.

- Improved texture rendering and autogen, enhanced graphics and lighting using shader model 3.0, Windows 7+ compatability, improved user interface, better multi monitor support, multi-player options, new aircraft, scenery areas and other addons.
- Continued development with regular updates and supported by Lockheed Martin.
- Strong community interaction between third-party developers, the public and Lockeed.
- Support for modern CPUs and GPUs including DirectX 11.
- SDKs provide a ton of potential for third-party addon development.
