The FlightGear development team is delighted to announce the v2016.1 "San FransicoFrancisco" release of FlightGear, the free, open-source flight simulator. This new version contains many exciting new features, enhancements and bugfixes. Highlights in this release include an integrated launcher that includes the ability to download aircraft, a reduction in the installation package size, performance improvements and many rendering improvements to the rendering of cockpits.
Founded in 1997, FlightGear is developed by a worldwide group of volunteers, brought together by a shared ambition to create the most realistic flight simulator possible that is free to use, modify and distribute. FlightGear is used all over the world by desktop flight simulator enthusiasts, for research in universities and for interactive exhibits in museums.
* The base package has been reduced in size to 1.3 GB and moved to All aircraft except the [[Cessna 172P]] and [[UFO]] have been removed.
* All core repositories have been moved to SourceForge. They can be found at
* Release are now planned to be quarterly (from the previous 6 month cycle). The new release number(2016.1) reflects this change: the release numbering format is changed to <code><nowiki>[Year].[Release within year].[Fix Release]</nowiki></code>. We also plan to change the default airport and the scenery that is included with the install image with each release. 2016.1 uses the KSFO default as we have done for many years, and so has the codename "San Francisco".
