Through an email sent to FSNews, Flight Simulation Association’s co-founder Evan has addressed the changes they made to their website and general approach to the project and community. Being a very controversial project upon its launch, especially with the paywall, the organization members believe these changes will help gain a better reputation.
With the new website update, the paywall was completely removed making all guides, webinars, and a rotating series of three discounts available for free for everyone who registers an account.
While there is still an option to subscribe for those who want, it is by no means a requirement. Subscribers are called, on the Flight Simulation website, “FSA Captains” and while there are no benefits, the association promises to spend all income on growing the community.
We know there has been a misunderstanding of our intentions—that’s completely on us, and we’re sorry. We also know we need to work to regain your trust, which will happen through actions and not words.Flight Simulation Association’s statement shared through their Facebook page
Additionally, Evan has recently responded, through the association’s Facebook page, to the rather harsh feedback they received in the past month since the opening. The complete video can be seen below.
