About FlightGear

FlightGear is a flight-simulator created by an international group of volunteers, and released as free, open-source GPL software. It has been used for academic research, education, and for fun.

FlightGear comes with a set of illustrated documentation, notably "The Manual," which is included in the installation package. This wiki provides additional documentation on both user and development topics.
