Beginning to answer questions and add new ones.
* How long have you been involved in FlightGear?
For over ten years - maybe almost 15. I'm the development coordinator (and occasionally accused of being the BDFL) for JSBSim.
* What are your major interests in FlightGear?
Flight dynamics and control, but I really like the whole aspect of specifying a model in XML (and other) files - a truly data-driven simulation.
* What project are you working on right now?
Continued development of JSBSim. There are always things to tweak. Recently, I extended the PID (Proportional-Integral-Derivative) control component in JSBSim to support some work I have been doing.
* What do you plan on doing in the future?
Writing more documentation.
* Are you happy with the way the FlightGear project is going?
I really enjoy seeing the progress being made in the visuals - such as the Rembrandt project.
* What do you enjoy most about developing for FlightGear?
* Are there any "hidden features" you have worked on in FlightGear that new users may miss?
