Even so it still means forking out 15 quid a month for the data and that
comes to 180 quid yearly.
 
It is getting a bit daft when simmers are paying the same price that is
being charged to real world users - this data also being fed into real world
simulators. For 180 pounds you can get a lot of data for your money. For
example
 
http://www.transair.co.uk/product4.asp?SID=2
<http://www.transair.co.uk/product4.asp?SID=2&Product_ID=829>
&Product_ID=829
or
http://www.transair.co.uk/product4.asp?SID=2
<http://www.transair.co.uk/product4.asp?SID=2&Product_ID=6030>
&Product_ID=6030
 
That's the whole UK IFR data, updated for 12 months and only for 158 pounds.
Few people would actually get this stuff so they'll never be aware that the
data is affordable compared to what they are paying out for FS products.

HI,
 
I was under the impression that you could spend the 20 credits and get all
of the downloads for no extra cost?
 
Maybe I picked it up wrong,
Alan

Hi Guys, 

Yesterday the new AIRAC's in the new format were released. Now being
distributed by NaviGraph.com. You need a different set for each different
product, or manufacturer, that you own. Categories are: 

Aviograsf (A340)
Feelthere
Flight1
FS-Build
FS-Navigator
LevelD & PMDG (Both lines & All products in one package) 
PSS
Wilco 

Its a bit sneaky as it doesnt really tell you clearly how much they are, you
are charged credits. 200 Credits are 20 Euros. Each Cycle is 20 credits so
it is about £15 for the full set. 

Going to get expensive isn't it! 

The amusing this is that it was brought out less than 12 hours ago (Cycle
06/10) and it was put up on a popular USENET site 7 hours ago ;) 

Alex
