    https://www.flightgear.org/ is giving it away. It has always been free.
    It's actually quite good, with a large range of aircraft, & the best Space Shuttle!

    It is from a site http://www.pixelclassics.com/ that sells freeware as payware.. such as The Gimp, Libre Office..

    FlightGear is well known and is freely available directly from the official site.

    https://www.flightgear.org/

    What you see on Amazon, and elsewhere, are people taking the free version, packaging it up on a DVD along with some add-ons and selling it. While this in itself is not illegal due to the license used by the project, the methods used by the people reselling it are very questionable. Over the years they have done things like steal screenshots from add-ons for FSX and others, designed the packaging to look very similar to FSX, and deliberately obscured the relation to FlightGear, among others.

    If you are interested in the sim, go directly to the link above and don't give these sellers your money.

    PS, there is a FlightGear forum here too where you can ask more questions about it.

    I downloaded and installed it. Didn't take long. Looks pretty good for free.

    And the downloadable scenery is very good as well.
