FlightGear Dev,

 

We are new to the FlightGear community.

 

FreedomWorks is a consulting and development company that specializes in 3D interactive simulation and robotics. Flight simulation is a large part of our business. We have many years experience integrating X-Plane and Microsoft ESP / FSX, including FAA approval for MS ESP.

 

We are currently in the process of investigating the viability of using FlightGear for a Cessna 172r FAA Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATF) as laid out in Advisory Circular No: 61-136, AC 61-126  and AC 120-45a.  FAA Approval of Basic and Advanced Aviation training Devices.

 

I have a couple questions and was hoping you could help:

 

(1)    Has any type of FAA approval been accomplished using FG?

(2)    Is there anyone currently working on FAA approval using FG?

(3)    Are you aware of any major road-blocks to FAA AATD approval?

 

After a high-level review we are very excited about the potential of using your software with our hardware and look forward to your feedback.

 

Respectfully Yours,

 

Christian Menge
