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.

How it works: Link

It is made by David Culp.


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
