fspilotshop down?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else attempted to reach the fspilotshop.com? I keep getting a "forbidden" 403 message when I try to reach the site. I thought it might have been on my end. Anyone else?

Thanks 🙂

Fine here as well! Have you tried using incognito or something similar?

Had an issue with FSPilotshop when I type Ant's instead of Ants for a search, it would kick me out for a few hours and give me the 403 message.  Tried contacting them and they never got back to me.

thanks everyone for the replies. I guess I caught them at a weird time, or maybe it was a cache problem. Cheers! 🙂

I see they stopped selling the latest  aircraft from Carenado. I asked them about a certain plane, and was told yes they will carry it within a matter of a few weeks. still waiting over 2 months.

well it's definitely not as usual from what I can see, the sales and updates are very sparse which is unusual.

Lack of communication is huge red flag when doing business with a company especially when you reach out to them as a customer.

Do business with this outfit at your own risk, these are the guys that charge you for new download links after one year.

What difference does it make if it's one year or two years or even more?

Just a cash grab and if they don't like your email they will just not reply as it's too much work for them to send an email.

I've had a ticket open with them for weeks without a single reply from their side. I think something is definitely happening. Currently the website appears to be down.

Is this a new version of the original fspilotshop site?

I tried to log in to my account using my fspilotshop details but I received an invalid email address message and the same thing happened when I tried a password reset using my email.

Although I haven’t purchased much from them in recent years because of their one year download link limit, it now seems that I may no longer have access to my old fspilotshop purchases which is not good. Luckily however I always keep backups, although this won’t help with any updates that may become available.

Your link leads to the shop owned by the flightsim.com site. For many years flightsim and fspilotshop were related, but they split a while ago and went their separate ways.

FsPilotShop seems to have been in some kind of trouble for a while. In the last 12 months payment of developer royalties was often too late and in some months didn't happen at all. In fact, the last payment that I received was at the beginning of June this year, so they are two months behind now. The site being down doesn't look good, and I can only hope that they can work it out.

Best regards
