1. License Plans
Choose your license plan
To be eligible for academic licensing, your primary intent must be to use the software as part of your research or teaching at an accredited degree-granting college or university. These licenses cannot be used for commercial gain or any direct revenue generating capacity.
Types of license plans
Classroom License: FREE
Need an educational license for evaluation or learning purposes? Look no further! Our software package is entirely free of charge for classroom use. What’s more, it comes with all the same support and training offered to paying Academic Flight License users.
Flight License: £275*/month
Ready to start your journey into space? Our Academic Flight License is a heavily discounted bundle of both our flight and ground software products, available as a 3 year plan. Coupled with shared training and community support, it gives you everything you need to blast your mission into space! (*based on a 3 year license)
Simply having access to our software may not be enough and you may require training and access to further support. Whilst we are unable to offer individual helpdesk support to academic license users, we won’t leave you on your own and will provide multiple help options through our academic programme.

Your journey is on us
