  • WARNING: All models here require DavePack! If a model fails to load in FlightGear, then you probably need to get the newest DavePack. INFORMATION: For more info see my blog at: Dave's Hangar Blog.

FlightGear PhotoScenery. This project brings support for photoscenery to FlightGear, the free and open-source flight simulator. The photoscenery is an overlay, which overrides the traditional scenery textures when there is a satellite orthophoto available for the current tile. ️ FlightGear Flight Simulator is a highly sophisticated, detailed and ultra-realistic flight simulator which includes 20,000 real airports worldwide! You have the freedom to fly anywhere, anytime, night or day, and experience the ultimate flight simulation!



Flight simulation software

FlightGear is a free software flight simulator. It supports a variety of popular platforms and is developed by skilled volunteers from around the world. Source code for the entire project is available and licensed under the GNU General Public License.

The FlightGear Preconfigured 6DoF Animation block is a subsystem containing the Pack netfdm Packet for FlightGear and Send netfdm Packet to FlightGear blocks: These blocks transmit data from a model to a FlightGear session.

The goal of the FlightGear project is to create a sophisticated and open flight simulator framework for use in research or academic environments, pilot training, as an industry engineering tool, for DIY-ers to pursue their favorite interesting flight simulation idea, and last but certainly not least as a fun, realistic, and challenging desktop flight simulator. We are developing a sophisticated, open simulation framework that can be expanded and improved upon by anyone interested in contributing.

There are many exciting possibilities for an open, free flight sim. We hope that this project will be interesting and useful to many people in many areas.
