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.

  • The sim itself is quite nice but very flawed (running on latest version of MacOS with MBP mid 2016). The program always crashes, either when playing or even after closing the app. Most of the controls cannot be manipulated by the mouse; one has to open one of the dedicated settings windows. Not very user-friendly. App does not support native MacOS look and feel or natural scrolling. If the problems would be fixed, it would be a great sim!
