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 Manual

From FlightGear wiki
(Redirected from The Manual)
Jump to: navigation, search

FlightGear comes with a set of illustrated documentation, known as The Manual.

Current Version

"The Manual"

This piece of documentation aims at being printed onto paper and being read as a reference while you're exploring FlightGear - or simply taken with you on a long trip.


If you are a skilled writer and a little bit familiar with LaTex, please take the time to dig into the PDF or HTML version. Instructions on how to get the source code are below.

It lies in the nature of FlightGear development that The Manual is always a bit behind current development. We invite you to pick information from

  • your personal experience with FlightGear
  • the available README's in the FlightGear source tree or the Base Package or
  • the Wiki

and merge these into an appealing shape for The Manual. Turn your head to the FlightGear developers' mailing list and you'll find someone to talk about how to improve The Manual.

You'll find contacts of current maintainers in the Manual itself.

Source code

You'll find the source code here, at the FlightGear Git repository.
