Community Charter

We started FSElite with the passion and desire to create a place where serious simmers, aviation experts and those willing to learn have a place to find the content that they need and want. We will NEVER be just another “news” site. We are building the content for you, based on what the community wants, in our own unique demeanour.

As we continue to grow, explore new ideas and build relationships with the community and developers, we want to be completely transparent with how we operate. We have learned valuable lessons over the years, but we have always stood by our integrity to offer impartial news, honest reviews and be accountable for mistakes we may have made in the past.

Being a media outlet comes with its own set of challenges and rewards. We have a responsibility to ensure our content is free from bias, our opinions are well-founded and that we work to improve the overall sense of community in this niche hobby we all know and love.

To try and tackle some of those challenges and set expectations to anyone who visits the site, we have outlined our Community Charter. A set of promises from us to you. Whatever your capacity in the flight simulation capacity, we are driven by delivering on the following:

Simmer First

It doesn’t matter what we do to support the community; we’re all here because we love flight simulation. Our simming community drive us to strive to be the best, so all the work we do is for you.

Honest Speaking

We’ll always tell you as it is. Whether we love, like or loathe something, you can count on us to tell you as it is. No influence from advertising partners, external pressures, etc will influence how we deliver our content to you.

Integrity Foremost

Standing by what you believe in should always be at the forefront of anyone’s mind. That’s exactly what we do. We work hard to deliver what we believe so you can count on us to ensure what we do is for the benefit of the whole community.

Efficiency & Continuity

We’ll always tell you as it is. Whether we love, like or loathe something, you can count on us to tell you as it is. No influence from advertising partners, external pressures, etc will influence how we deliver our content to you.

We Strive to Be Transparent, So Here’s Our Promise to You

We Invest Back Into The Community

We invest money earned from advertising and sponsorship back into the community through FSElite, whether that’s through server costs, website development, advert promotions, software procurement or giveaways. Some of our team members are paid for the contributions on a contractual basis to ensure we have a wide-range of content for the community.

We Publish Relevant, Original Content

We won’t copy and paste from a press release. We always take the information provided and deliver it in a format we feel benefits the community. We will continue to offer, unique and unbiased views through editorials, YouTube, and our Podcast.

We Will Ensure Promotions Are Relevant & Non-Spammy

We will always post on Facebook, Twitter and other social media. What we won’t do is spam and duplicate posts covered by other websites. (Unless they stole our content first).

We Receive Free Press Copies of Products

We will never be biased towards a publisher because of it. We will also ensure any products given to us free of charge will be made clear on the review.

We Are the Future

We’re very pro Prepar3D and X-Plane and the majority of our products will be featured from these two sims. We will cover various other sims if and when we feel our community want to see that content.

We Admit to Our Mistakes & Listen to Feedback

We’re not going to be perfect, but we’ll ensure mistakes are corrected and admit to them. If you spot anything, let us know and we’ll do what we can. We respond to and take on-board any feedback, comments, criticisms or enquires. What we ask is that you contact us if you spot any of those issues.

We Like to Grow & Celebrate Our & Success

We have grown since we started and want to continue doing that. We’re always seeking innovative ways to do so. We’re always going to write articles which please our target audience, as well as encourage new people to stop by. We also like to celebrate our successes as it motivates our team to strive to be the best.

There you have it. This is FSElite, this is what we’re all about. We love what we do. We love how we do it.

As always, if you have any feedback, questions or want to ask us anything, message us through our contact page.
