Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

* FlightGear was used to give a 3D visualiziation of a simulation by '''Robert Heffley Engineering'''. The simulation was used to examine the use of a Task-Pilot-Vehicle (TPV) model as a tool for flight simulator math model development.<ref>{{cite web |url=http://pdf.aiaa.org/getfile.cfm?urlX=6%3A7I%276D%26X%5BRW%2CS%20CIP4S%5EQ%3AO%224ZT%27%5FP%20%20%0A&urla=%26%2AR%28%27%230%2AC%0A&urlb=%21%2A%20%20%20%0A&urlc=%21%2A0%20%20%0A&urld=%28%2A%22P%26%22%406CTA%20%20%0A&urle=%28%2A%22H%23%230%22DU1X%20%0A |title=Use of a Task-Pilot-Vehicle (TPV) Model as a Tool for Flight Simulator Math Model Development |date=2-5 August 2010 |author=Heffley R.K. |publisher=American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics |acessdate=16 August 2012 }}</ref>
* Dutch roadable autogyro manufacturer '''PAL-V Europe NV''' uses FlightGear to provide the visuals and terrain data for their simulator. The simulator is currently used to prepare the test pilot and evaluate design options, but may be used to train customers in the future.<ref>{{cite web |url=http://pal-v.com/licenses/the-pal-v-simulator/ |title=The PAL-V simulator}}</ref>
* The '''Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics''' of Germany uses FlightGear in several simulation environments:

=== Endless Runway Project ===
The '''Endless Runway Project''' is a consortium of aerospace instutes from France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and Spain. "The fundamental principle of The Endless Runway is that the aircraft take-off and land on a large circular structure. This will allow for the unique characteristic that the runway can be used in any wind direction, thus making the runway independent of the direction of the wind and therefore also the airport capacity independent of the wind direction."<ref>{{Cite web |url=http://endlessrunway-project.eu/projectdownloads/indexd3.php 2-aircraft-aspects.pdf |title=Aircraft aspects of the Endless Runway |date=30 September 2013 |accessdate=16 January 2014}}</ref>
FlightGear and JSBSim were extensively used to simulate the landing and take-off performance of large aircraft on a circular runway. By using FlightGear, the consortium was able to select the radius, width and curvature of the runway.
* The Department of Aircraft and Aeroengine from the Chinese '''Air Force Engineering University''' conducted a study on a new airworthiness compliance verification method based on pilot-aircraft-environment complex system simulation.<ref>{{Cite web |url=http://ac.els-cdn.com/S1000936111604342/1-s2.0-S1000936111604342-main.pdf?_tid=d3518780-834d-11e2-ba1b-00000aab0f26&acdnat=1362238285_cf85b59c1b58215e2a1559b6f42867aa |title=Airworthiness Compliance Verification Method Based on Simulation of Complex System |date=12 January 2012 |author=XU Haojun, LIU Dongliang, XUE Yuan, ZHOU Li, MIN Guilong |publisher=Chinese Journal of Aeronautics}}</ref>

* The '''Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics''' in China made a 3D surface movement simulation system for [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Surface_Movement_Guidance_and_Control_System A-SMGCS] with FlightGear. The system displays ADS-B data in FlightGear through the multiplayer system and accurately predicts the aircraft's and/or vehicle's attitude (this is absent in ADS-B).<ref>{{cite web |url=http://pub.chinasciencejournal.com/article/getArticle.action?articleId=31183 |title=3D simulation of A-SMGCS surface movement based on FlightGear |date=16 May 2012 }}</ref>

* The '''Czech Technical University in Prague''' is working on a full motion simulator to do research on situation awareness. They're using FlightGear for the visuals. A video of the simulator can be seen [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8SQa9_el8k&feature=autoshare at YouTube]. More info at http://measure.feld.cvut.cz/en/cast
* '''French Aerospace Lab (ONERA)''' and '''University of Toulouse''', France (2004). A thesis student Frédéric Dehais has used FlightGear and developed a cognitive counter-measures experimental environment (p.119 and following) to show the pilot/ATC scheme could be formalized and enhanced to avoid cognitive perturbation. Use of Atlas and Onera Messenger. Over 22 real-life pilots have been testing this environment.<ref>{{fr}} {{cite web |url=http://oatao.univ-toulouse.fr/2137/1/Dehais_2137.pdf |title=Modélisation des conflits dans l’activité de pilotage |first=Frédéric |last=Dehais |publisher=University of Toulouse |date=21 June 2004}}</ref>
* '''Pázmány Péter Catholic University''' and the '''Hungarian Academy of Sciences''' developed a collision avoidance system for UAVs using visual detection. The system was simulated with FlightGear serving the visuals.<ref>{{cite web |url=http://www.analogic.sztaki.hu/publications/UAV_Collision_avoidance.pdf |title=Collision avoidance for UAV using visual detection }}</ref>
