We wanted to do a special shout out for Adrian and the team at The Flightsim Store. FSS has been a generous supporter of ARNZX over the years, always willing to donate product for prizes. With our current competition which includes FTX Globval its no different, their generosity is unmatched in our experince and we are incredbly thankful for that.
On a personal note we have been customers of the FSS for many years and have always found the product selection and support excellent. So who are the FSS, and where did they come from?
The FlightSim Store (commonly referred to as FSS) was established in 2006 after business owner Adrian Lehmann identified a need for an Australian based competitor in the home consumer flight simulation products market. At the time there was a clear opportunity to provide a fresh level of service to newly emerging flight simulation add-on development groups preparing to enter the scene and FSS tasked itself with aiding in bringing their products to market.
Since then The FlightSim Store has grown to become a global leader and now sells a vast range of flight simulation products internationally for use by hobbyists and flight training organisations alike. The business mainly offers add-on products for the popular Microsoft Flight Simulator title from numerous software publishers such as Orbx Simulation Systems, Real Environment Simulations, Aerosoft and Just Flight, and several hardware manufacturers such as Saitek, Go Flight, CH Products and Vrinsight. Products from these various vendors combine to create an immersive and highly addictive flight simulation experience.
The success of the business has largely been attributed to its focus on customer service, something we can validate from our own experience, and the friendly customer facing presence of its representatives online in community forums and through social media. With the consumer trend pushing toward digital media The FlightSim Store also has a great reputation for delivering large, high volume digital products through its extensive content delivery network of servers that offer reliable downloads to its customers worldwide. This provides the convenience of having your products available almost instantly without the risk of
delays commonly associated with delivery times and/or stock shortages. It also means these products are available 'on demand' in your account when updates are released or you decide to do a reinstall.
You will often find FSS at various aviation events throughout the year. Air Shows and airport open days provide a great way for customers to put faces to the names in the business they deal with online and over the phone.
So there you go, The Flightsim Store, we recommend them 110%. No, this isnt a 'paid' commercial, we genuinely wanted to give them a shout out as a way to say thanks to Adrian and the team for their support and generosity over the years.
We have released three new repaints for the Blackbox A330 family and one for the PMDG 777-200LR. You'll find them on their respective download pages. Enjoy.
With the release of the 1.5 upgrade to FlyTampa's St Maarten airport for FSX, we decided to spend a day spotting. Its amazing the types and airlines you see flying in and out.
