brilliant, an ingenious product and the best airport services addon UNTIL GSX came along.
The problem with AES is that even if you bought credits, the airports you want to use them at are not always made AES compatible. You can request certain airports to be made AES compatible but that does not mean they will be done. I have experienced this and waited for certain airports without any luck for some time.
My biggest gripe with AES is the lack of communication from the developers regarding which new airports are being made AES compatible, what new features are being developed, whether certain requests are being taken onboard or whether they are possible or not. I find I'm always guessing what they are up to and hoping and waiting with no news, no updates and feel that customers are in the hands of what the AES developers want to do.
AES still has a big market though for FS9 users.
The magic of GSX is that it works at every
single airport all of the time! As soon as a new airport scenery is released, GSX works at that airport immediately. With AES you have to wait for AES to be made compatible for each airport and there is no guarantee each airport you want will be done.
GSX has taken FSX realism to a new level and I can honestly say it is the best FSX addon available TODAY by a mile. Also, GSX is constantly being updated and developed to implement new features which is fantastic, so the GSX world is constantly changing and improving.
Communication from FSDT is fantastic. EVERY question raised on the forum is answered promptly and customers are kept fully informed about future developments, improvements, new features and requests and suggestions are acknowledged almost every day. Regular communication with your customers is key, particularly for such a major product such as an airport services addon. I commend FSDT for communicating with their customers so openly and honestly.
So, if I were you, spend the best €29.90 you will ever spend on an FSX addon
