Northeastern University brain-control
* FlightGear is being used as the basic framework to provide the UTC Challenger Center (and hopefully other centers in the future) a low cost virtual reality computer simulation in the '''University of Tennessee''' at Chattanooga. Our simulation is using flightgear and JSBSim, specifically the shuttle module, to develop a shuttle landing simulator. Currently, we are trying to get to the point of at least contributing instructions on how to interface our virtual reality hardware with Flightgear back to the OS community.<ref>http://www.flightgear.org/Projects/utc.html</ref>
* '''Department of Aerospace Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University''' used FlightGear primarly for its graphics engine, in advanced research programs in the areas of flight control design, advanced rotorcraft flight dynamics modeling, and near real-time acoustics simulation.<ref>http://www.fkm.utm.my/ftp/pub/OSS/Win32/FlightGear/paper_PSU_2004AHS.pdf</ref>
* A team of '''Northeastern University''' (Boston, USA) engineering students has developed a system that allows a pilot to fly a simulated airplane in FlightGear, using nothing more than his or her brainwaves.<ref>[http://www.northeastern.edu/news/stories/2011/05/braincontrol.html A brainy innovation takes flight]</ref>
