Fly Away Simulation Launch "Free-to-Download" Access to Files

Posted on Fri, 06 Jul 2012 14:20:29 GMT

For over 5 years, the access to the file library here at Fly Away Simulation has been restricted to only registered members of the website.  We have now opened up access to the file library for everyone, in fact - you don't even have to register for a "free" account; you don't need to register at all.

Starting today, the 6th July 2012, access to the flight simulator downloads and file library no longer requires you to be a registered member of Fly Away Simulation.

Users may download any of the files free-of-charge and no registration is required; not even for a free "account" - just click and download without signing it.

There are some restrictions

While you can now download any of the files without an account, there are some speed restrictions and caps on your connection.  There will be a speed cap of 25kb/s​ for each connection and a limit of 1 download at a time.  This means you will have to wait for your current download to finish before you start downloading another one.

In order to lift the speed cap and parallel download limit, you would still need a registered account.

Registered Members Still Benefit

Registered members have unlimited, un-metered access to all areas of the website including the file library, videos downloads and of course a full profile on the forum and the option of posting their URL on comments.

Advertising is also disabled site-wide for registered members.

The most diverse downloads library

The downloads library at Fly Away Simulation is one of the most diverse on the internet.  With downloads for Microsoft Flight Simulator X, 2004 and X-Plane all in one easy to access location, you'll always find what you're looking for.
