In the United States, it’s Thanksgiving today and its one of the biggest holiday celebrations in that country and what follows immediately after is the massive pre-Christmas sale that is known as Black Friday. The phenomenon has, thanks to e-commerce, spread around the world and there are an immense number of sales on in the flight sim community right now. These are the ones that I know about and that you might want to take advantage of.
