I have been rather mystified over the demise of FPI. I can understand Rory providing the Shetland Flyer for free, after all he is a fellow enthusiast, and I suspect also has a professional interest. I can understand commercially supported sites, where advertising for flight sim products appears, or there is a commercial link, eg the Visual Flight forums. What escapes me is the logic behind the provision of FPI. I have been a member for some time now, but I don't have a clue who provided and paid for this service, or what they were seeking. I would like to say thank you to them for doing what they did, even if sadly it has come to an end. Perhaps someone out there can enlighten me? Frank T.
