AirwaySim is 10 years old!

Today, on the evening of January 9th, the AirwaySim Online Airline Simulation software is 10 years old!

The public launch of the first version happened on this day back in 2009. It was preceded by a long development and testing period, spanning all the way from the winter of 2006. Our online simulation software has come a long way since those early first steps, and we are glad that we've been able to provide entertainment and education to thousands of aviation fans around the world during these years.

Today marks the start of a special celebration week where we tell you more about the history and background of AirwaySim. During this week special blog-type posts are published and each of them will have a certain theme related to AirwaySim's development and history.

During this special week a discount of 20% is available from all of your Credits purchases when you use the code "AWSTEN" at the purchase page. This code is valid until Jan 16th 2019, 23:59.

The first blog post about people behind AirwaySim will be published later tonight.

Would it be possible to lift the credits in your account cap for this sale?

9 years of digital addiction to imaginary airplanes. Cheaper than meth though, plus I still have all of my teeth.

Thanks for being my dealer, Sami.

Congratulations on such an achievement! I'm sure it has become more than you envisaged at the beginning.

Thank you to you and your team! ... and to your family... when you´re spending time with and for AWS instead of them.  :)

I joined AWS only a couple of months after launch (although wasn't aware of that until now) and been pretty much addicted ever since. Scary fact according to my account stats.... 320 days, 7 hours and 6 minutes online, in ten years  :o

Thanks Sami for all you've done.  I can't believe I had to put up with <insert previous simulation website> for years earlier.  And before that it was KOEI games on consoles or AirBucks on PC.  I've been at this a long time and I'm glad AirwaySim gets better every day.  Here's to another 10!

I've played a lot of simulators and manager games. Among the last ones, AWS was the most captivating I've ever played. It's just like Railroad Tycoon in terms of immersion on the transport business they relate to, but this has the plus of real and massive online competition. It's a challenging game while being simple in many aspects, so anyone can learn to play it without effort.

Congratulations! May this game stay forever and every change go for better!

I have 119 credits and it let me initiate the purchase, but then, when I go to checkout with PayPal, it hangs at PayPal login.  I get a lock icon with a spinner, that just does not proceed to PayPal...

If you mean this icon, then it's a problem at PayPal, and not at our end (since that's from PP's own site). (I tested just and works OK)
