emerald_flag you sure have a way of putting my thoughts into words

... but at the same time I've always respected and admired RadarMan's almost ecclesiastic ability to be patient and helpful with rude and unruly posters.

I agree with emerald. We were all new once and everyone thinks that just because they pay $5 a month all of their flight dreams will come true. When I first joined I didn't underrstand where to temporarily download files and then configure them properly either. And, I didn't realise there are different ways to go about it, but, you experiment. Some readme files are good and some are not. It takes practise! But I have to admit that I have always gotten great support from everyone no matter how foolish my questions were/are. And yes thank you Radarman, you have helped me through the learning curve more than you can know. I am a brand new pilot in training and your advice has always been top notch. As for dontwannanik, if you understood what goes into an addon you wouldn't be so quick to say something sucks. It is not a matter of unzipping and loading into one file. Sometimes you have to unzip to a temporary file, then put certain files into scenery, panels, etc. If you do it right it will work. I am proof, because when I first tried nothing work. Don't dis the support, it is there for you.

if the support is so good then why have they not even bothered to reply to my questions and i sent 2 or 3 mails to them however the support from players is good and i have now learnt how to install files properly and heythey are all fine and working for me but yh you do get some addons that suck like the contols are limited and the gages dont even light up and many others but there are some that work very well indeed

Yea I have always got great support from radarman and tailhook and always have gotten help when needed.I cant imagine anybody having a problem with this site.Myadvice is sometimes just do a search through older posts as ur problems have been covered alot of times.

First off the best thing to do is search the forum that coincides with what ur looking for.If that doesnt work then post a topic in here and 100% of the time radarman or tailhook or the other mods will post what you need.

As for downloads they are hit or mis.You install them try them out if they are no god then just delete them they are free.What you paid for is to be apart of the best sim community on the web.Try and go somewhere else and ask how to do this and that and see the response you will get from them.Not so nice is what your going to get.

The site administrator will never respond to your emails. Some of the downloads here are good and some are junk, you can get better downloads without paying $5 a month at www.avsim.com. The main value of this site is the forum, we communicate about everything from flight simulator to current events.

The email (to me and members) link doesn't work and as CRJCapt said the admin can't reply to them.
If you don't want to post it on the forum use the PM.
It's preferable to use the forum so everyone can answer or can learn from the answers.

I think I read new members do, don't know the date it began.

[Only $5 for monthly membership!

MEMBERSHIP WITH A SURCLARO PAID ACCOUNT IS CURRENTLY $18 PER MONTH. MEMBERSHIP HERE AT FLY AWAY IS $5!

It takes lots of hard work and money to keep one of the web's largest Flight Simulation sites running, therefore we are asking our members to pay a small monthly fee of $5 In order to keep Fly Away running. The payment entitles you to a full account and a user account here at Fly Away. The user account gives you full access to Downloads section, which is regularly updated with quality flight simulation downloads. The fee is a lot cheaper that other flightsim sites such as Surclaro, that offer one month member ship for $18, while we offer a monthly membership for only $5.]
