Description

Founded in 1997, FlightGear is developed by a worldwide group of volunteers, brought together by a shared ambition to create the most realistic flight simulator possible that is free to use, modify and distribute. FlightGear is used all over the world by desktop flight simulator enthusiasts, for research in universities and for interactive exhibits in museums.

FlightGear features more than 400 aircraft, a worldwide scenery database, a multi-player environment, detailed sky modelling, a flexible and open aircraft modelling system, varied networking options, multiple display support, a powerful scripting language and an open architecture. Best of all, being open-source, the simulator is owned by the community and everyone is encouraged to contribute.

    A wonderful flight simulator with a wide range of aircraft and really beautiful scenery. It's quite challenging for a beginner to come familiar with the program, but with a bit ambition you can enjoy this great flight sim. Another aspect: Anyone can contribute to the project and so anyone can help making FlightGear better. Big thanks to all people, who have contributed to FlightGear, this is an awesome piece of work!

    FlightGear is a fantastic flight simulator with a huge variety of excellent aircraft, beautiful scenery, and realistic flight dynamics. It can be tricky to install, configure, and run, but the fun of it makes this effort well worth your time.

    For the average gamer in search of such a simulation, installation of this is an exercise in frustration. One thing after another was required to make the binary, and there is nothing in the install document that adequately instructs a user on a stock user-friendly Linux distro about what is needed. There are a collection of readme files, as if they are afterthoughts, but little reference to them. Maybe when this is more refined and dependencies more easily met, the average gamer might be more interested. Otherwise, I don't see this moving out of the serious Linux geek arena.
