I’d be happy getting the material I bought.

good thing this did not happen in Bahrein.

 Bahrain has the death penalty for murder and drug offences and corporal punishment for some offences such as stealing.

After stepping away from flight sim for more than a few years, I recently got the itch again and began re-loading my computer with all my old FSX files.  Of course, I wanted all the latest iterations of the software I purchased, so I began visiting all the old stomping grounds to update my files.  What a revelation   I should have known there would be big changes in the flight sim community.  PMDG left AVSIM for their own forum, (I saw that coming), some market vendors simply disappeared, A few companies just gave up (sniff for Real Air Simulations and Flight Sim Commander). Some companies have really stepped up their game.  PMDG's Operation Center is top notch, as is ORBX's ORBX Central.  Flight1 used to be clunky to re-install, but they've got everything nicely organized now.   In years past, I kept a database with all my flightsim purchases, with passwords, activation numbers, dates, etc.  What a blessing that turned out to be.  I had 338 different pieces of software that I have purchased over the years, and I'm happy to say that every piece of software that I wanted to re-install on my computer was successfully updated, with no hassle from any vendors. I did have to send out a couple of emails, and support tickets, but the response was quick and positive.

 

Then I came to Airline2Sim.  I see they had a brand-new website and didn't have the technical expertise to port over passwords.  So I went through that hassle and opened my new account with them.  It wasn't very difficult.  But when I went to my dashboard, or library, or account page (whatever they call it), I noticed I only had one purchase listed in my history.  It was for the Q400 First Officer's Training Program.  I knew I had purchased both the cadet and FO program, so I did some digging and sure enough, on April 11, 2014, I purchased the Cadet Q400 program for $29.99.  I did some more digging and found the videos for both programs tucked away safely on my hard drive, as well as backed up on separate storage.  I also distinctly remember the Airline2Sim promise that a "Captain's Program" for the Q400 was in the immediate works.  I'm glad there was no option to pre-pay for it because I was very happy with the quality and the content of the products I had already purchased and may have found myself in the same predicament some of you are in now.  I would have purchased every Boeing product they released. They really haven't produced much in the last 8 years.  Caveat Emptor I hope you guys get your money or your product. 

 

Well, I'm off to fly my beloved FSX, and maybe I'll dabble in the stunningly beautiful MSFS 2020 I just bought.

Would somebody be so kind and write a little instruction on how to download the videos from the web app?

I have bought the videos a while ago and as much as everyone else, I am concerned these will not be available in the future.

The easiest way (and the way I ususally download them) is to use Internet Download Manager.

unless I'm very much mistaken there is no way to download any of the material from the new website. fortunately I had downloaded all but the new A320 stuff before Ben disappeared......again!

Yeah the “official” download function has been disabled for a while. 
But you can still download them using a 3rd party addon. Easiest is “Internet Download Manager”. 
I ended up buying it because it’s a great tool. You can try it for free to download all the A2S stuff though.

Sad to hear he isn't providing new content. It is actually a great video series and although it is made for the FSLabs A320 you can perfectly use it for the FBW and now the Fenix A320. Maybe the latter could motivate him to come back?
