The v2 release is based on the freeware (v1), but it has been extensively revised and it is to be noted that this first release "basic" version is focused on systems, and that systems and features will be added with more extensive procedures as the series progresses.

 

The current rollout is noted as such:

 

v2 will be available in three categories (releases noted here are forecasted and are not set definite dates):

- Basic (Now Available) - US$25.00 - Shop.OrgStore : QPAC Airbus A320
- Plus (available May 2014) - US$40.00
- Premium
(available December 2014) - US$70.00

The v1.1 version will still be freeware for X-Plane 9 and X-Plane 10 - 32bit.
