proflightsimulator is one of the best put together scams Ive seen in a long time.
The architects behind this scam have done their homework. they’ve put together a very nice looking website.
They’ve added positive reviews to the review sites around the internet
They’ve spent up big on google advertising, facebook advertising , and probably even conventional advertising.
Without some serious Googling a prospective customer would be hard pressed to find a negative comment about the flight sim.
but here’s the thing. Proflightsimulator is just a copy of a * free* flight simulator called Flightgear [www.flightgear.com]

Well don’t believe a word of this one at all. It’s a scam.
This “new sim” is simply a compilation of an old version of the Open Source Flightgear project. It is NOT a new sim, it is NOT “better than FSX” and the current version is available without any charge at all here: http://www.flightgear.org/
Link on the Flightgear site discussing this here: http://www.flightgea…hp?f=17&t=10039
So spread the news an tell your friends.. an report the ad if you see it on facebook 🙂
Unfortunately it seems that http://www.proflightsimulator.com hasnt done anything illegal – the flightgear sim license allows people to recompile it – but their advertising certainly seeks to mislead.
