Where to buy - flight simulator add on for computer

My brother is approaching a big birthday and as he lives abroad but is coming to visit me on Thursday, I have been tasked by my sister to procure her present to him - it is a flight simulator add on game for his computer by Aerosoft - the 777 if you are interested ..

I have tried searching around in the web to find a shop that sells these things but am not having much luck - I am sure they exist but I am equally sure that I am entering the wrong search criteria.

Can anyone help me with a shop that might sell such things. Bern, Basel, Neuchatel, Biel, even Zurich. I can find it on the web (mostly German sellers) but want to go get it so he has it when he passes by in 3 days' time.

Thank you

It's software?

I thought it was a piece of gear, like a special throttle or so ;-)

Re: Where to buy - flight simulator add on for computer

Sorry. As you can tell I really have little idea. But yes i believe it is software - so how would this work for a present then? i'm an old fashioned girl - like to wrap something up and present it

Here is the link I was sent

Download, buy a fancy (and not too slow) USB stick, save to USB-stick, buy fancy packaging for USB stick, wrap-up...

Check the link from blackbird. It appears you can download the software directly from Aerosoft, so no need for the DVD. You can change the language of the website if it helps. However that's another way of packaging. If you don't want to use a USB stick just drop it on DVD. That's a slightly larger package for you to wrap.

PS - My hubby has an older version of this software and likes it quite a bit. Happy Birthday to your brother!

Did you signed up as a new customer ?
Did you make any mistake in the order process ?

Yes I did. Then tried again to pop the product in the basket and checkout from download checkout and immediately told me it was not available at the moment

Maybe it can sense I'm not a true believer and it just won't sell it to me (actually the few times I've seen my brother doing this I think it looks a lot of fun ..)

Maybe try another store:
http://store.x-plane.org/About-Us-_ep_7.html

http://store.x-plane.org/777-Worldliner_c_11.html


Downloads should be identical, after all.
