I'm from Costa Rica, and I'am a real pilot in training. Currently I'm a private pilot and I still studying for the Commercial License and IFR rating. So I would like to practice at home, so which version do you recommend for me? the X Plane 11 professional use digital download or the normal X-plane 11 digital download? 

Thanks for your help.

Hi albertoajun,

I am not from Laminar Research; just a flight simmer from downunder.

If you want to use the software for your own personal home use, including any family members,  then purchase the "normal" digital download version. The home use version can be loaded onto any number  of computers but can only used on one computer at any one time   My other commercial pilots like yourself do exactly what you propose.

My understanding is the professional version is for multiple users within flight training schools  From what you have advised you do not need or require the professional version.

Good luck with your training.
