It's not the best solution but at least it gets me an installer I can use. Thanks!!

please send feedback to Apple to provide again a download link to the trial. The more, the merrier!
From Aperture's main menu bar:
Aperture > Provide Aperture Feedback

It looks like they got the download link after calling AppleCare. Could try calling them if the link goes down or anything.

Did someone get a solution for this problem? I am in the same situation (I have the Aperture 3 license purchased before AppStore was created) and I had to do a clean install of my Mac Book PRO. Now I need to intall Aperture again and can't find it's download.
I really hope I don't need to purchase it again...

There is a link to the Aperture trial in this support article:
Follow the instructions in the paragraph: If you orginially installed Aperture 3 from a trial version:
If you orginially installed Aperture 3 from a trial version:
- Go to the Applications folder and delete Aperture.
- Download the Aperture 3.1 Trial.
- Open the Aperture Trial disc image.
- Double-click the "Aperture Trial.mpkg" file.
- Follow the onscreen instructions to install Aperture.
- After the installation completes, choose Software Update from the Apple () menu.
- Install the Aperture 3.4 update from the list of available updates.
Note: If you are using OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.2 or later, you may receive an alert stating that Aperture is from an unidentified developer. This can occur when you try to install Aperture from DVD or the trial download. See OS X Mountain Lion: The app is from an unidentified developer for details on how to successfully install Aperture in this situation.

This is great! Thanks LeonieDF! I was looking all over for an Aperture download. It makes you wonder what they do with your program registration. Why is Apple so determined to hide the actual program (I don't mean the updates)?Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

You are welcome, WorkerBee
Why is Apple so determined to hide the actual program (I don't mean the updates)?
Probably, because it is the Trial version, and there is no longer any way to sign up for a Trial registration key. So this download is currently useless and would be misleading for anyone, who wants to try out Aperture before buying it.

Thanks again. I tried to mark your response as helpful, but for some reason I don't get that option for this discussion. Maybe because it's already marked as solving a problem?
