Opinion: projectFLY Is Seeking Even MORE Money

Chrome 2020 04 01 19 03 26

Update – April 3rd 2020 – We have added the news that ProjectFLY Systems LTD is now a registered company of Matt Davies. It is not a subsidiary or a holding company according to the documents file on Companies House.

April 1st is meant to be a day of fun, laughter and harmless pranks that give people a bit of a chuckle. During the current global situation, small victories and good will are what we’re all looking for right now. So when I saw projectFLY needs your help! in my inbox, I was half-expecting some kind of amusing post or change to projectFLY to reflect on the day of jest.

There certainly was a joke in the email. Just far from being funny.

So yet again, Matt Davies / projectFLY / Mettar Simulations / projectFLY Systems Ltd (you choose) is asking for money. It’s now beyond a joke that a person/team/company can constantly reach out to the community asking for money and always use the same excuse. As a community, I think we get it: server bills can get expensive and projectFLY is a free service. The issue is that time and time again the community is being begged to, to cough up the cash to keep the service alive.


A portion of the email sent out today.

FSElite Original: In Review – January

Monthlyreview Jan

It’s the end of the month again, meaning it’s time to look back. And the first month of 2019 certainly has brought us some interesting discussions. About Aerosoft, for example, or Captain Sim, who seemed to develop a competition of who could get the community the most outraged.

Luckily it wasn’t all outrageous, and a lot of good things happened in this first month. A lot of exciting updates for some of our beloved aircraft are on the horizon, such as PMDG’s Queen of the Skies II or QualityWings’ 787, BAe146 and 757. And, on another positive (and personal) note, I finally got my PC back up. You may recall I had to put it away for the time being, due to a home redecoration project. This project lasted a lot longer than I had anticipated and hoped. But everything is done and I can finally start my sim again after three months. After I have spent another three on installing all my addons, that is. And those mobile sims I wrote about? Yes, I promise I’ll get back to you about that sometime in the future.

And yes, the careful and aware reader may have noticed I totally skipped my December review. I do apologise. I simply could not find the time between family and holidays.

FSElite Original: In Review – November

November was supposed to be a relatively calm month. Some releases to be expected, some updates here and there, and the big Black Friday sale. However, that should have been about it. It almost sounded too good to be true. And if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. In all fairness, I might be slightly exaggerating.

FSElite Original: In Review – October

The end of the year is slowly creeping upon us. It seemed like just yesterday I was still enjoying cold beers on a sunny terrace, but the harsh and cold reality, mixed with the first snow of the year have reminded me that these days are long gone. Enfin, back to our simulators it is. Perhaps we can get a
