Not quite. AA had an exclusive agreement with a commercial add-on developer by the name of Papa Tango which gave the company the exclusive right to sell AA planes for MSFS. This was the real reason why all freeware AA planes were asked to be taken off flightsim.com. Not surprisingly, Papa Tango earned itself a very bad name though this extremely foolish move.
