This month, FlightGear's AI system has received a major update. Until recently, FlightGear contained two major AI systems, oftentimes leading to much confusion. Although one of the systems had been scheduled for deprecation for a long time, early this month the decision was made to remove this system from FlightGear altogether. The other system, known as the AIModels system, has recently also undergone a major revision. One of the weakest aspects the latter system was that aircraft never performed a reasonable approach, but basically just plummeted out of the skies, only to pretend making a reasonable landing (and usually ending up several miles short of the runway).
The revised code generates much more realistic approach paths, and ensures that arrivals will start almost instantly after program start. In addition, the approach paths are set up in such a way that aircraft will be lined up with 90 seconds of flight time (or more) between them. During the revision, several bugs were solved, resulting in a much more stable AI system .
