  • Credit card sales are handled through a paypal.com so I never receive any of your specific credit card information, only a notification of your order with your shipping information.
  • Alternate payment methods (i.e. mailing a check) can be arranged if you are unable to pay via paypal.
  • I usually ship orders within 1-2 business days of receiving them.
  • I ship via the United States Postal Service to keep costs as low as possible for everyone.  This means there is no tracking number available.  United States delivery usually takes 3-5 business days.  International delivery usually takes 5-10 business days.
  • If there is ever a problem with your order (such as lost in shipping, or a disk arrives damaged) please email me and I will do my best to work with you to resolve the situation.
  • The contents of the DVD sets sold here are exactly the same programs and data that you can download from the FlightGear web site.  I offer a physical copy of FlightGear as a service for those who would like a copy on DVD.  You can always try before you buy.  The contents of the DVD’s should never hold any surprises.

Where does the money go?

The proceeds from these sales go towards two primary goals:

  • Sponsoring a child – The world definitely need a multi-platform, open-source flight simulator, but there are also way too many kids in our world that aren’t able to get even the basic stuff, like food, simple health care, and school. Here are more of my thoughts on the subject.
  • Support of various FlightGear project needs such as server disk space and upgrades, registering domain names, etc.
