Received quite a lot of spam mails regarding a self-claimed award winning and most realistic flight simulation on the market recently. Did a search and found that this ProFlightSimulator is actually a rebrand of an open-source flight simulator developed by FlightGear. The guys just copied and markets the free product for $197 (discounted to $97). Unbelievable!
Here’s the statement regarding the scam by FlightGear. Most sadly, there’s nothing the developer can do about it under the Open Source GNU GPL v2 protocol. So be careful and don’t be Santa in this way.
