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

Aeromatic is a tool for inputting a small set of parameters, and will then output a JSBSim FDM.

Note that things like position of fuel tanks, gears and pilot have to be modified by hand after output.

There are 2 versions of the programs. The old online Aeromatic. And the newer C++ Aeromatic.

Online Aeromatic

Usage: Browse to the online Aeromatic website, and input a small number of inputs. It will output a simple but complete JSBSim FDM including engine.

Official readme: Link

How it works: Link

It is made by David Culp.

AeromatiC++

AeromatiC++ is an attempt to make the outputted FDM from Aeromatic more detailed by Erik Hofman. It is made in C++, so it must be downloaded and run locally.

The program is now part of JSBSim source repository, and is compiled as part of Flightgear nightlies for Win and Linux (but separate download).

I find AeromatiC++ very useful, especially for making JSBSim engines. For example it predicted the Viggen fuel consumption almost spot on. -Necolatis
