MRN123,

This is going to require research on your part I believe because it will be a lengthy answer. I would suggest going to each website to see what each piece of software does so YOU can make an educated decision.
Myself, I use Sim-Avionics and am very happy with it and have been using it over the past 3 years or so. I have tried Pro-Sim but it was not easy to setup and the support was awful (my opinion)

Thanks for the reply. Was hoping I’d get responses from different people who had experience with all 3. Each website talks like they are the best.

My suggestion is to try the demo versions of each. They all do as they say, provide the avionics for the aircraft they offer. Each has their own way of supporting the integration of hardware to software.

I use Sim-Avionics for B737 and also support and use ProSim for A320 with customers using either Sim-A and ProSim.

"Each website talks like they are the best", isn't that how competition works? Just like car companies, phone providers and airlines? ETC...

Moving this from the Sim-Avionics FAQ Area (More for sharing info than public discussion)..
