yes, it is safe to download stuff from avsim. I have downloaded lots of stuff from there, its not really the type of site that people want to upload things with viruses/spyware on, I think they also screen things that people upload for viruses/spyware.

Quoting GAIsweetGAI (Reply 10): Only problems I've had with avsim and simviation (I don't use flightsim- didn't want to sign up) are missing parts for the aircraft- like downloading a repaint but not the model.
Thats why there is a section for "Original Aircraft" and "Aircraft Repaints, Textures and Modifications" that way you don't have to have dozens of copys of the model file. The size of those files aren't much compared to the texture file, but over time they really start to eat HD space and slow HD search speed.

I only use Avsim nowadays, Flightsim.com costs money if you want download speeds above 10KB/s and a guaranteed slot. Avsim is still free and I got 300KB/s earlier today. Possibly Flightsim has a bigger library for earler stuff, but newer are probably found on both sites.
